If you missed it Saturday, our Dear Niblets, Week Six letter is here. Also, a Niblet interviewed a potential foster family over the weekend, with help from another Niblet and by ‘interviewing,’ we mean falling asleep in a lap for a hour despite all the “aww-ing” and cooing and kissing.

Four times a year we decorate for the season – winter, spring, summer and fall. We’ve significantly toned it back from years past in keeping with today’s sparser interior decor trends, and partly due to cat tastes.
You did know that cats dictate home decor, right? We’re not so much talking about leather versus pleather versus chenille, hardwood versus carpet or fresh flowers versus silks, but taking into account the “toy” factor.
Whenever out shopping (or browsing) when viewing some bauble, the questions alway comes up. Is that a toy? How long before it becomes a toy? Who’s toy will this become and how fast? Doesn’t matter if it’s a fist-sized clay mock orange or a 1940’s Belgium sideboard, sooner or later, they all becomes toys. The key is to plan and embrace that fact, mixed with just a bit of hope that the season will pass without much notice. Cat notice, that is.
Seasonal Decor Supervisor Olivia approves of the fall fruit… and plans ahead on how and when each apple, orange and lime will entertain her for hours. Already missing from the arrangement before photos were taken, the pinecones *sigh*.
