This is Baxter, our 6 year old retired racing greyhound. When we adopted him, he had never lived in a home before and we had to teach him things like how to go up the stairs, and how to get on the sofa for a nap. He is a fast learner and this Pottery Barn sofa is now his favorite spot in the house, even though his long legs are always hanging off.

Thought I’d send you this shot of my Mac. She is enjoying the view from our IKEA ottoman
Here is our Ollie on the bed with some vintage German science posters behind her (jellyfish and potatoes!). She was just wrapping up a nice grooming session while enjoying the sun.

Bear, the fluffy black cat, chose us on a very cold, blustery winter day. We have never looked back. Max moved with us from Shanghai, and adapted quite well to Canadian cat culture. He is no longer with us, but he lived a very large, intercontinental life.
1 – Bear sits atop a teak dining table, made in Thailand but purchased in Singapore.
2 – Max is sleeping below a wall of pictures, a collection of house pictures on the left and, appropriately, cat pictures on the right.
3 – Max in the kitchen with a Chinese chicken coop cabinet in the background.
4 – Bear atop a dansu, a favourite lookout spot.
I wanted to give a quick update on my herd of ferals. Bernie, Frankie and Georgie are doing well and now that I have realized the power of food, they are progressing really well. Frankie used to spend all of his time hiding when I was in the boys room, and now he always comes out and wants to play with whatever toy I’m swinging around or to chase the laser pointer.
Now that he wanders around, I was able to got a photo of his beautiful spots. He is so handsome! I also started letting Felix in the room with them, as they seemed very curious of the cats on the other side of the door. Felix is the most chill of my other cats and could not care less about the newbies, and it turns out none of the ferals care too much when he’s in the room with them. Yay! The other night while Felix was lounging on my sofa pillow, Frankie – the shyest of the ferals – walked right up to Felix and sniffed his face. It was a magical moment.
Here is a demonstration of the power of Fancy Feast, as seen with Bernie.
