Week 1 in the Ripley house
And things are going well for house-mate Ripley.
Yeah, that’s enough of that, but I do hope you were reading it in a suitable accent, that being the Geordie one. Anyway, Ripley has been with us now for 4 full days and she is settling in well. On Friday we went to the vets and she got her first round of vaccinations so she spent the afternoon and evening recovering and was then up bright and early that night to let us know the effects had worn off.
Unfortunately, like all puppies, she has a small bladder, and so we are regularly out with her. Not a problem during the day, but at night it is a bit of a drag. Still it could be worse. She seems to have somewhat of a schedule, 2:00 am, 5:00 am, and then I get up at ~7:00 am to look after Lady Mew and then let her out. She has left us the odd present, but we are starting to recognise her personal “I’mma gonna go pee/poo now” signs and so can get her outside.
And speaking of Lady Mew she isn’t fazed in the slightest by her. She spends a little bit more time upstairs than she used to, but she still comes down for her usual 20 – 30 minutes petting before going off and doing her own thing. She has also followed her around outside, curiously, but she isn’t too fond of her following her and has let her know that twice. But we don’t think she used her claws and Ripley is fine and dandy.
I’ll try not to bore you all too much with Floyd stories, but it’ll be hard to resist …
