All Zamboni

All Zamboni
Yep, that black background is ALL Zamboni. Godiva managed to meet Magnus at the top of the stairs, so I guess it was Zamboni's turn. Here's an excerpt from a *Boot Camp Update* email to their owner:

I thought I outsmarted Zamboni today. I set up a baby gate so that Zamboni couldn't zoom out whenever the door opened. It worked going into the room, but I failed to anticipate the effect of an eighteen-pound feline jumping up and hanging onto the top of the baby gate. Sigh. TIMBER! Yep, Zamboni went kerthunk with the baby gate, hopped up, and bolted for the stairs. Of course, as Magnus hadn't been fed yet, Magnus perched at the top of the stairs waiting for me to emerge from the basement. Zamboni only made it up a few steps before he thought better of meeting that 120-something-pound black furbag blocking his road to freedom. Zamboni whipped around and headed straight at me. Sorry, but I couldn't resist. I scooped him up and opted to have Zamboni meet the monster in question. Magnus wagged his tail as I approached with a bowling-ball shaped feline cradled in my arms. Surprisingly, Zamboni didn't growl. He just let out a simple, quiet mew of uncertainty. Enough of a noise to cause Magnus to turn his head and wag his tail even more fervently, politely asking not to get himself in a tussle with any member of the superior species (thankfully, my dogs are both submissive to felines). I let Magnus sniff Zamboni's backside in a friendly canine greeting, and Zamboni consented to the interaction. Then I carried the big boy back down to his room to await the next opportunity for freedom. With all that said, I did manage to outsmart Zamboni on one level. Yes, Zamboni eats faster than Godiva. Yes, Zamboni wants to eat Godiva's food. Yes, Godiva lets Zamboni push her out of her food dish. HOWEVER, if I sit and hold the food dish, presenting it solely to Godiva and lifting it when Zamboni approaches, Godiva gets to eat her meal. The lengths we go for our felines.

This is too funny, Jean, thanks for sharing your letter and for the smile.

Any indication if the family misses them and looks forward to their return?

LOL! That is a challenge to deal with for sure! He is one big dude! (Max is 22 pounds, so I can compare for sure) I hope he can lose some weight in a healthy manner, for his own good.
