Karl (left) & Bernie (right)
Good news! Karl and Bernie are . . . playing together. Last night I heard scampering upstairs and thought it might be Karl playing with the new ultra-furry gray mouse toy I gave him. This afternoon I caught Bernie chasing Karl, and not hissing or growling. And a few minutes ago, Karl situated himself on the guest room bed with Bernie. Karl was playing with Bernie’s fish toy, and Bernie didn’t seem to mind it. They seem to be quite relaxed with each other as you can gather from the photograph above.
I will keep you posted on their unfolding friendship.
And Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, including women who mother and care for others but may not have children of their own.
