Maddie's been enjoying lounging under the tree this week.
She is always happy to see her big green friend. In fact, I really think she'd like it if we brought an array of seasonally appropriate trees into the house for her to camp out under.
Of course, we're getting to her least favorite of seasonal activities: the trip to the Winter Palace! That's right. We're about to pack up and head to the Ranger-in-laws. Maddie tends to weather it well enough, though she puts up a fight getting into the carrier and voices her displeasure loudly and often during the trip. At least she doesn't blow chunks in the carrier like poor Ivy used to.
Anyways, the trip isn't too much to bear for the lovely cat. She gets a nice bed to sleep on:
even though it may be a bit high for her to jump onto easily, now that she's older and arthritic. If she steels herself to visit the famiily rooms, she gets a lovely sun room to enjoy.
She doesn't get out of the room as much as she used to. I think she's afraid that she'll come face to face with Tabby, the resident cat. Although we really try hard to keep the two apart...
But, when Maddie does venture from the room, she finds that it's not terrible.
We'll let you know how the trip goes. Might even get pics.
Have a Happy Christmas.
