Allegra and Ruby got a surprise visit from our dear friend Robin Olson of Covered in Cat Hair last week. Robin was in town for BlogPaws. She’d been wanting to meet the girls two years ago when BlogPaws was held at Tysons Corner as well, and this year, we finally managed to find the time to make it happen.
Allegra, who loves visitors, took to Robin right away. She greeted her at the door, and led the way upstairs into our living room. Ruby, who tends to be a little more cautious with people she doesn’t know, didn’t take long to warm up to Robin, either. But why don’t I let the girls tell you about Robin’s visit in their own words.
Allegra: I love visitors, and I could tell right away that this lady was a cat person.
Ruby: New person in the house!
Allegra: Ooh, she has nice energy. I like her!
Ruby: You like everyone, Allegra.
Allegra: And there’s something wrong with that?
Ruby: You’re right, Allegra, she is nice. I’m going to let her pet me. Oh, this feels good! She really knows how to pet cats properly!
Allegra: Move over, Ruby. It’s my turn again!
Ruby: Look, Allegra, she has treats for us!
Allegra: She’s my favorite visitor ever!
As the second photo shows, not only were the girls completely enamored with Robin, they even performed for her!
I wish more of my friends could have met the girls, but they’re not used to visitors, and a group visit would have been a little too overwhelming for them. Unfortunately, there just wasn’t enough time to bring everyone who wanted to meet them to the house.
Allegra and Ruby are still talking about Robin’s visit, and we all hope she comes back to visit again soon.
