...but Bentley needed convincing... ...."Okay, just a taste."...
...once the grass was well-rooted, I decided to just set the planter down and let them "pick their own". They both enjoyed it more, and really didn't seem to uproot the grass too much.
Although it's taken awhile, I think Bentley is getting used to me being "the human" instead of my son. He actually comes up and lays his head on my leg when I'm on the couch.
Heh...he seems so comfortable, you could even say he likes me!
As for Gizmo, no hard sell...anybody with cat food is his best friend! Submitted to Friday Ark.
