Foster cat gets 'dopted

My little Violet foster cat has been adopted after only one day at the shelter.

This is good.

I am teh sad.

Not because she was adopted, but because I miss her, and I don't know what sort of people she went home with, and I'm worried.

I am not a good foster parent.

Bye, bye, Miss Vi. You be a good kitty. I hope they give you lots of snuggles and pettins wherever you are.

agility notes

Griff and I have been doing some agility work over the holiday in preparation for our trial in February. Just some notes to help focus our training for the next two months.

Weaves-we are finally straight on six poles, and Sunday he did 12 in a row straight! We need to work on more difficult entries, but I am very pleased with his progression.

Contacts-need to work on two on two off contacts being held even if I keep moving

Teeter-doing well, need to get to the point where I don't need to babysit him too much

Turns-doing well. Need to work on tight turn into tunnel.

jumps-need to work hard turns and keeping bars up.

Handling-always need work! I need to focus on clear body language, as well as increasing clarity of verbal commands

Object discrimination-need to practice verbal cue discrimination.

More practice! Need to get to the barn more.
