Sometimes it takes a little time to heal and sometimes it just takes a new friend to ease the pain. Justin and decided to check out the local desert animal shelters for a new companion pal for Georgie boy. We stumbled upon a 5 month old tabby tiger girl with a lot of spunk. I am typing this with one hand while a new cat purrs on my chest. We brought her home and so far so good. He has followed her around as she explores the place, and neither seems to mind the other. I can already tell they will be good friends in the future.
Georgie reacted to the new kitty... by hiding under the bed. She however was fearless and not phased by his size and pranced around the house bumping faces with him numerous times.
Our good friend Laura came to visit up here in the desert. We had a great time exploring thrift shops in palm springs and antique malls all over yucca valley and eating BBQ at Pappy and Harriets. We hit the mother lode when we stumbled upon a real cowboy posse riding horses in Pioneertown and a cool estate sale. The estate sale we went to in Pioneertown had tons of crystals and rocks for super cheap! We scored weird shells and drift wood to make crafts as well as painted gourds that would impress Yayoi Kusama! We kept kicking ourselves for not seeing the flyers for this sale on Thursday (when it first started) The loot that other garage sale people were carrying off made us green with envy. The town was re-enacting old Saloon scenes complete with brothel ladies, shooting cowboys and comedy acts.
it was hard to say goodbye to Laura, Gilly had formed quite a cat crush on her. She followed her around and came whenever Laura called her.
Gilly seems super excited by all the new space, new things to explore and of course people. She hasn't left our sides since we brought her home. She wants to be curled up in a lap no matter what. I think she's a really good addition to our family.
