Pet Sitting

If we were having coffee, we would be in a different house. I am off visiting my son and family this weekend. My son and daughter-in-law have put us up in their newly furnished guest bedroom. They have made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Their pets have accepted us in their own unique ways. Marley, a golden retriever, bowled us over with sloppy kisses and hugs. Caesar the cat, was a bit put out, literally and figuratively. The guest bedroom is usually his room, where he can escape Marley and other unwanted attention. When I went in to put my suitcase down, he made a swift exit from the bed to the closet. I am happy that he has recovered from the intrusion. This morning he was back on top of the bed sitting on my husband’s suitcase calmly watching my comings and goings.

We are pet sitting for part of the week so my son’s family can get away for the long weekend. I was not sure how it would go with Marley. He hasn’t outgrown his puppyhood yet and is still jumping up on people. When I got up the other night to go to the bathroom, he thought it was time to play. When I went back to bed, he jumped on top of me. He is calmer today. I think Marley and Caesar are getting used to us and it will all be fine in the end.

    It looks like a fun and interesting weekend for you. How does it feel being back in your once upon a time home. I’m sure the remodel and furnishings make it feel different. Enjoy your visit. I’m sure you have a bit of time to visit with your family, too. My best to all including Marley and Caesar.

    I recall our home in Colorado Springs and it’s two guest rooms down in the basement. We loved them and used them often with visiting guests.
    But we live in California now and guest rooms are a luxury we couldn’t afford.
    Yet another reason to get out of this state.
    Have a great week

    These two look pretty cute. Goldens are generally loving. I laughed when I read that he thought is was time to play in the middle of the night.

    I periodically sit with our daughter’s cat when she travels. It is an effort to get accepted, but it usually occurs after it’s clear that I know where the treats and food are located.

      Marley and Caesar are getting adjusted pretty well. We do know where Marley’s treats are. I was trying to bribe him off our bed the other night with one. I think has calmed down because he wasn’t jumping on our bed during the night, which was good.
