I took the metal detector out for a few minutes this afternoon again and found even more treasures. A wire, a quarter of a can lid, a can rim, a nail, a headless screw, something round with a nail in one of the holes, an L-shaped piece, another piece to a shotgun shell, a key, and my best find yet - a metal soldier!
The cats are enjoying having free run of the bathroom and laundry room. Zombie has been chasing jingle ball toys across the floor, while Netherquartz sits on one of the bottom shelves of the cat tree watching. Henry, Mabel, and Floki have claimed the topmost seat and have been purring for the last hour. I am not sure if they're happy to have full time humans again, or for more space to romp, but either way, they're clearly happy cats this evening.
