The same was true when friends visited for coffee just after New Year. They were here most of the afternoon. And so was Lacey at a time when she would normally be napping upstairs by the back window. That's her habitual afternoon spot, but not when we have company.
She was intrigued by Bob's foot.
Bob and Barb have a dog, so we are guessing that's what drew her. When we got her from the shelter, they did mention that she was known to sleep with the dogs. That's what made us think that she might be animal friendly, but when we tried to introduce another cat, this was not a happy place, as I posted in Caturday 4 back in August.
But her fondness for Bob's foot does make us think that she might be tolerant of dogs. Not that we want a dog, you understand, but there are dog-lovers in the extended family, so it just might work out if and when they visit. Fingers crossed.
Sue made a pet talkie of Lacey's deep feelings: "Who is this guy? I think I'm in love."
Toward the end of the afternoon, we showed Bob the guitar that Shauna has left here for the kids should they ever show an interest. Bob can play, so he tried it out.
Lacey was very interested.
All in all, that was an interesting Lacey afternoon.
