The Omy Report #4 - The Visitors

Last weekend, Conan’s sister Miranda, Adam and their adorable 18-month-old boy Woolf came up from Brooklyn to stay at our place for the weekend. Suffice to say, with Remy there too, it was a full apartment!

We were a little concerned as to how the cats would react to a toddler in the house. At worst, the cats would be freaked out, spending the entire weekend hiding underneath the bed. But we needn’t have worried, as Omar & Remy were quite unafraid, even unfazed, by the arrival of the Little Human.

Remy, the more extraverted of the two cats, was the first to approach Woolf and seemed quite taken by him, sniffing and checking him out. Omar maintained a more wary distance, but eyed the boy with obvious curiosity. Naturally, Woolf was enchanted by the two furry animals, but didn’t quite know what to make of them at first. Thankfully, he didn't have any desire to touch or even grab at the cats, and seemed content to just watch them go about their business.

Conan showed Woolf a few tricks on how to become fast friends with the furry felines. Like Cat Fishing, for instance.

Woolf and Remy seemed to have bonded pretty well, and they had quite a few things in common, both being fair-haired, outgoing chaps with an inquisitive nature...

And a mutual fondness for snow!

awww, what a great blog! I'm so happy Remy was on his best behaviour for the guests.
I really found Woolf looked remarkably like Conan...
and you should also teach him to be careful of what he dangles in front of the cats!
