it isn’t every week that there’s a double dose of oscar. but, hey, yesterday was a big day for him! yes, there’s a new pet in the djalali house and oscar was on the welcoming committee. or at least he tried to be. ‘cuz it’s hard to give up all the attention.
but he did his best. and having gone through numerous pet introductions through the years, and bringing home new siblings, mr. style and i knew going in it would take a few days of ‘getting to know you.’ but it’s time for the big guy to have a four-legged friend. even dogs need to learn how to share
so meet ollie, a maine coon cat that’s nine weeks old. at the moment she’s as big as a minute but will grow to be around fifteen pounds or so. some claim maine coon cats are the biggest cat breed. years ago when our kiddos were small they grew up alongside two dogs and one cat. and it was a great mix. cats and dogs can and do get along well. and i have to admit i’m quite excited to add ollie to our family. maine coon cats are not only sizeable but sociable. their nickname is gentle giants. they love water. and like to follow people around. maybe even a dog…
wish us luck as we get ollie and oscar acquainted. and have a terrific monday while you’re at it.
