We are back to sharing a single room. One evening we even shared the same salaaaad bowl. And Gus came out of it with his duff all intact! Not for the lack of Espresso trying, of course. Espresso was Espresso, and he tried to go for it. One of our bipeds kept his paw on 'Spresso's shoulders, massaging them while Espresso nomed. As soon as he tried to lunge and get Gus's gizzard, the biped paw acted as an arresting harness. That brought the training session to a close.
Well, the hoomins thought it a great success. We'll keep you posted,
