“Hope” is now “Maggie May” and doing well! We are so happy that she is getting along with Cosmo, our wonderful, affectionate, courageous, curious and smart cat that we adopted about 5 years ago.

It was funny that within minutes of coming home from the shelter, Maggie made a poop right in Cosmo’s bed!  Surely not the best way to endear herself, but as you can see from the picture, they are now pretty comfortable being together.

Cosmo continues to be his usual self but is teaching Maggie his boundaries, so Maggie does not chase Cosmo very much anymore.

Maggie LOVES people and has met a few young children. The children were given training on how to be with a puppy. Maggie loves to cuddle up next to you as she falls asleep. She is learning not to playfully bite us but still needs work on that. We are learning to keep all shoes, socks and clothing out of reach!

She has gained almost 5 lbs since adoption and always enjoys eating. She waits patiently at our feet while we prepare her and Cosmo’s meals. Sometimes she lies ON our feet while we do the dishes.

She loves car rides and walks at the park and beach. She’s a bit fearful of other dogs but seems to be improving. We have taken her to puppy playtime at Petco too, where she/we will start puppy training this Friday!
