Ahhh some quiet time for me! If it's not Lexi trying to intimidate me to cough up more treats it's Simba at the front door yowling to be let outside and not at the same time. Lexi gets outdoor walks 4X a day with a treat upon return IF she does her business and usually does as she's old and arthritic and the body does not work as long anymore - like humans! Simba has a LOVELY caged outdoor play structure accessible through a cat door in the laundry room that he's usually in. I guess it's not so obvious when there are four adults around but only me the house is quiet even with music playing - unless I'm sewing selvedges! I sent the pics to the family too.
