Carla and boys
It was a real treat, while Bobby was here, to meet one of her real-life friends who just happens to be one of my blogger friends who, until then, was always an online presence only. Carla from The River blog and her boys came to our house to see Bobby and so we could meet. Well, I know the boys were more interested in meeting Lionel, who has celebrity status at their house. Evidently they follow my blog for updates on Lionel!
Like everyone else who visits our house, Bridger was 'much bigger than we expected.' Also like everyone else, Lionel was 'much bigger than we expected.' I was glad they didn't make any comment about me in that regard.
Carla appeared with a cute basket of fall gourds and...a Ritter Dark Chocolate with Hazelnut bar! What a smart lady she is! (It's my all-time favorite!) The boys carried a gift for Lionel, some cat treats. He will have to share them with Tuppence. They say 'thank you.'
It was great fun to have Bobby and Carla and boys here at the same time. Those kids are amazing - so nice, so fun, and so interested in my cats! I told the boys they could wander the house and do whatever they wanted, so they went upstairs in search of Lionel. I had warned them that Lionel is not sociable, so he would most likely hide from them. Sure enough, after they caught an initial glimpse of the scaredy cat under the fainting couch, Lionel vanished and they weren't able to spot him a second time.
I promised Lionel to keep his hiding places secret.
'We have an arrangement. She doesn't disclose my hiding places and I let her sleep a few hours each night.' - Lionel
