Yes, I'm still around.  I got out the clay again to bake in miniature.  I made chocolate chip cookies from a tutorial by Sugar Charm Shop, but I used a paper towel to press the cookies since mom's cookies have a soft texture and I wanted them to look like hers.  I must admit, they do look like the real deal.  nom nom nom!  :D

Feline update: Vi went to go live with my friend last Wednesday, and it was a disaster.  :\  She had been excessively hiding in a tiny tiny TINY space under the rear of a TV stand where she could barely fit and couldn't see anything.  She was so scared.  He said he left for long periods when she was able to roam free (and when he was sleeping), so he knew she was eating and using her litter box.

We decided I should come for a visit, so I did that over the weekend.  I blew lightly under the TV stand so she could pick up my scent, and she immediately meowed.  Hooray!  Then, she came out -- within one minute of my being there.  She was still skittish with him in the room, but she was all over me.  I guess that means I'm a good kitty mama.  We blocked that crazy hiding spot, and she found one that was larger and more acceptable to all of us.

My friend bought treats, so that helped, too.  I stayed a few hours and she explored more and more.  She even went up to him, let him pet her, and showed her belly to him a couple of times for rubs.  I totally felt like Jackson Galaxy!  :D

She's been shy since but comes out when he sits with her and lets him pet her.  Progress!

Glad Vi has a new home and is getting settled in. And chocolate chip cookies make everything better.

Oh I'm hungry. So glad that Vi is making progress with your friend. She just needs to get used to him. I think once she realizes that the whole place is her space she'll be happier. But you are a good kitty mama since she comes right to you. I'm certain Jasper thinks so. How is he doing? Still on the road to recovery?

Your cookies look amazing! They made me hungry. Sorry Vi is having a rough time adjusting. You're very good to help her get used to her new home. Sounds like she's on the right track now.
