Fortunately, we rarely use this toaster oven so she was perfectly safe. But I do worry about some of the places she chooses. When she falls asleep she won't hear anything happening around her...even the vibrations on the floor when we walk by are not enough to rouse her from a deep slumber. Usually the other cats do not bother her when she is asleep (a different story when she is awake!) and the dogs typically ignore her (except for Seumas and his sniffing habit) so we haven't had a problem yet.

Within the first week Seumas had a taste of where he placed in the hierarchy. Sadie climbed on top of his cage and acted as if the pup wasn't even there. Angel was already used to sharing the couch with Girly so hardly missed a beat when Seumas was placed at the end of the couch. After a wary look at each other, they both settled in and fell asleep, oblivious to anything around them.
Seumas quickly learned how to climb up on the back of the couch (better to see everything and everyone around him!) and he is the only dog in the family to show any interest in this - usually this is the cats' domain. Although in this case it was probably my food that caught his interest. And being a typical pup, the couch was also a prime sleeping spot. In fact I am just looking across the living room and I can see a much larger Seumas stretched out on the couch, with his head on one of my good feather cushions. He, like Girly and Angel, knows that it is important to keep me company in the living room, when I am the only human down here late into the evening.

Girly has been in a decline these past few months, even getting to the point she would only give a half-hearted woof when Sebastian would go by. With heavy hearts, we finally had to say goodbye to her on Thursday. She spent her last few hours in the outdoors, sniffing gently at the air and hearing us tell her how much we loved her.
Life goes on ... but she has taken a big piece of our hearts with her. :-(
