I think Operation Thomas Integration has begun! I think the Guardians are happy with the progress TheBrothers and I are making in accepting him as one of us. Well, I should say they are happy with the progress Brother Oliver is making, because he’s really the only one that has been resistant to the idea of Thomas joining The Inner Circle. Anyway, the Guardians have made some modifications to the house that allow Thomas a little more freedom of movement. Originally they had placed a door at the top of the stairs to Kitty Valhalla. That has been Thomas’s domain for the last several weeks. Now that door has been moved to the bottom of the stairs.
At the bottom of the stairs, Thomas can look out a large picture window or use a Potty Pod. He can also look down the hallway and see what goes on in the house. The Brothers and I are still allowed to have supervised visits up in Kitty Valhalla, but we can also have much more regular interaction with him when he comes down to the door. Last night he even sat on the steps looking down at Brother Oliver who was snacking below. Brother Oliver didn’t hiss or anything! I think that is a good sign.
The Guardians are also doing a bunch of work down in the basement today that I think has something to do with the next stage of Operation Thomas Integration. I’m doing My best to help them by supervising and begging for treats now and then to force them to take a break. I wouldn’t want to overexert themselves and not be able to finish the project! Plus, those treats aren’t going to jump out of the container on their own!
