Snuggling Saturday

If you were sitting on the back of the recliner, and looked down over Mom's head last night, you would have seen this.

You all know Mom loves watching Tennis. She has been watching the Australian Open on TV, and I have taken the oppportunity to get in some good snuggling time. I make sure she gets comfy, then wriggle my way into the space next to her. She pets me and gives me scritches. I purr.

Now don't you all get all goopy over this turn of events. Like all cats, I like getting petted and scritched, and what the heck, if I can get somebody else to do all the work, all's the better.

Yeah, I know said I'd never ask to be petted. I loved cuddling next to Gizzy, but he is gone and Jasmine was never interested in being my friend.

That leaves Mom.

Get over it.

A cat does what a cat has to do.

Millie we are very proud of you. We know it has taken a lot of courage for you to get to where you are now. We can only hope that Cody will eventually mellow enough to allow mom to even give him skritches. Mom says it is a woman's perogative to change her mind.

We totally understand. Sometims we play hard to get too. Napoleon refuses to sit wif great grandma, so far...perhaps when Momma stops scritching him, he'll have to sit wif great grandma to gets them.

Lynne, my mum says you should put the bag of temptations next to your chair. Then next time you snuggles you gets a reward. That is how she has taught me to come and sit on her knee. Sometimes, especially in the winter, I forget about the treats and just has a snuggle. It may only last a few minutes, but the breeder said we were not lap type cats.

I like laying with Bob the same way when he is in the recliner watching TV.

Millie.Mom says you like Jane Austin. I hope she knows that PBS TV is running a Jane Austin series on Masterpiece Theatre Sunday Night. It started last sunday with 'Persuasion'
Mom loves Pride & Prejudice especially Mr Darcy(Colin Firth)

Millie, that picture looks a lot like our house ... recliner, computer, momlap ... except you'd have to add a bunch more kitties!

It's good to see you snuggling!

We're cats, we're allowed to change our minds at any time about anything.

congratulations on getting up the courage to let your mom give you pets! i must confess that i too was afraid to let mom and dad pet me. but now i trust them and have learned that they give good pets and scritches and love shnugglies.

There's nothing wrong with wanting skritches. It feels good, plus it turns people into our slaves. It's a win-win if you ask me.
