Back to the grind

Same old, same old at work. I'll be working more on my faerie story a bit later tonight.

Had a lovely day off, though. Met up with dreamsewing for book-buying and lunch. Returned home to eat said lunch. erickavan got in on the conversation and our guest didn't leave for a few hours, giving us great time to catch up and help her slowly ease back into Western civilization.

Another kitty accident yesterday. I caught her in the act, though, so it wasn't as big a problem as previous days. She got taken to her litter box and praised well for using it. I kept her shut up in the bedroom with me (where her food, water and litter box are) for a chunk of the afternoon. This suited her fine as we mostly just napped through the time. After her evening meal and use of the litter box, she got to roam the house. This wasn't entirely to her benefit, however, as Vegas has decided that this new intruder is not as scary as first believed and now should be beaten up. There was a yowl in the early evening and Vegas seems to be chasing Domino into the basement when given the chance.

Between chasings, Domino was being particularly cute in a "I am a mighty huntress!" way. As I lay on the couch, idly rubbing my feet beneath a blanket to help them warm up, she leaped! from the back of the couch on to them. I caught on to the game and wiggled my fingers under the blanket, causing her to leap! from my toes to about my waist. Then wiggle the toes and back she goes. We did this back and forth for a while and then she wandered off for a bit. She returned for more leaping!, with one particular incident having her leap! nearly three-quarters the length of the couch to pounce upon my fingers beneath the blanket.

One thing that we're trying is moving the blanket from the couch on to Ericka's bed. Since Domino sleeps on the couch blanket when she's out there, we're hoping it will help her realize that Ericka's bed is not to be peed upon.
