Chad Basil the First Update – A Month and a Half

January 22 2022

Chad Basil the First update. Basil has been with us a month and a half now. 🤍🐈‍⬛🤍

He’s leaving the safety underneath Thomas’s bed more, exploring more of his new home. His litter box and food are now out of Thomas’s room. Basil knows that’s still his safe space though.

He likes to play with the wand toy, and will play with me now. He’s still not ready to be touched, giving us lots of laughs. I was playing with Basil. He landed on my slippers, jumped up and hissed at my slippers. 😂🤣😂

Love when he hides under my bed. 😂🤣😂 See photo of a Basil tail. I’ve had to send him to his room a couple of nights, as that’s when he wants to explore and make noise, waking me up.

Just this past week, he got the courage to jump. Up until then he had not left the floor! He’s discovered Thomas’s window sill, and the birds feeding at the bird feeder.

For about an hour last night, he slept on Thomas’s desk. First time he’s slept anywhere other than under Thomas’s bed. 👏👏👏

Basil had his first case of the zoomies last night, too. At the same time I was going to bed. He nearly got sent to his room. 😂😳😂

Invisible ink is drying so I can decipher their message to me!

Team TLC and Romano Duo Christmas 2021 – Great Food With Harsh Driving Conditions and New Slippers

December 24 2021

Cranberry sauce and green bean casserole ready for tomorrow. Felt like cooking, experimenting, so made a vegan mushroom loaf for me and Thomas for tomorrow.

Sending love to all, and warmth from 34 degrees! 🎄🎄🎄❄️❄️❄️🎄🎄🎄Team TLC, The Romano Duo, and Robert.

A beautiful afternoon with a lovely vegan dinner. My mom made vegan deviled eggs for me and Thomas. Very creative! Merry Christmas to all. May you be surrounded by love, joy, peace, and laughter.

Thomas took this photo during our drive home. This was right before I nearly threw up. 🤮 I have 4 wheel drive and can handle driving in snow, as long as I can go slow. However, when I can’t see the lanes, or the road in front of me, it absolutely unnerves me.

For local friends: Once I exited 580, getting on old 395, I was able to relax. I cannot handle the new freeway at night, in high winds or blizzard, snow conditions. I feel much safer on old 395, even though there was more snow on the road.

All good now. Car unloaded, ready to relax.

Thank you to The Romano Duo! Who else got new slippers? ❄️☕️☕️☕️❄️ And since I get holes in them so quickly, two sets!

Thanks to my daddy for the new cold weather boots. Wide toe box, barefoot/minimalist style, and vegan. Need to send them back for a half size bigger to allow room for cozy socks. Love them!
