Say Hello to Tahra!

The garage is still her domain, but she has finally come down out of the rafters!

She loves to sit here on this little scrap of carpet and watch the outside activities from the safety of her little garage-home.

Sometimes she even likes to stick her head out a little bit and smell the fresh air. Pretty brazen of her, wouldn't you say?! (Yes, I'm being facetious.)

I was truly surprised when I saw this!

That's what I thought... she's outta here!


What's this? She's chasing after Dexter! Dexter, who (because he's special and doesn't let us forget it) gets to go do his business out front instead of out back with the others. The thing is, he's a senior and can barely tolerate puppy antics.

Anyway, she must really crave company if she's chasing after Dexter. That is soooo out of character for her. I just wish Dex would give her the time of day. "C'mon, Dex, be nice, at least offer a mere sniff." Eh, he can't be bothered.

Well, I'm thankful then, that this handsome boy has adopted us. He's a stray that thinks he hit the jackpot when he discovered he can not only find shelter in this garage, but there's free food and a pretty girl there, too!

Tahra seems to be happy with him, as well. We call him Tom... or Tom-Tom... or Tommy Boy... or Tommy-Tom-Tom... or Handsome Fella...

Oh, the little sweetie! She's beautiful, Pam. I'm a sucker for black and white cats.

And your new Tom-Tom looks like he's pretty settled in! Isn't it funny how they can find you? Do we have signs on our places that say, "Cannot turn away cats or dogs...suckers within!"?
