I'm a little frustrated because I know I took more than one of each of these, but sometimes I forget that you have to push another button to SAVE the picture... Argh!
This first one I love of Leo, he's such a goof and I find him in this position a lot, so you've probably seen pictures of him like this before. But it's so cute!
Did I hear a bird out the window?!
This next one is a common sight around here... Someone stealing a drink from my freshly iced glass..
In this case it's Star doing the stealing. She used to get a drink every night, both from the bathroom and from my glass. Lately, she's only getting her drink in the bathroom. So when she came to steal some ice water, I snapped the picture.
I like to lick the cubes.. as well as get my drink.
I should take this moment to say how much better Star is doing! Her rash is gone and her fur is starting to grow back where she lost it. AND she started jumping again! We suspected arthritis in her spine perhaps maybe legs.
But for a long time she's been actually asking to be picked up and put on the counter, something very odd for her because she HATES being picked up. But when she stands in front of me and raises up to put her paws on my leg, giving me pleading eyes, what else do I think? So, expecting her to spaz out as usual, go all stiff and scratch the crud out of me, I pick her up anyway.. And don't get scratched! She comes softly, and as soon as she's counter high, she pushes and leans toward it so I set her on it. Where she gets her drink. I told Greg about it and we decided she was starting to show her age.
Now, when we had her at the vet, he gave her the allergy shot and said that it might do her some good with the arthritis too because it has some pain relief to it. Cool, I thought, and waited to see.
Two days ago, she came in for her drink, I waited for her to put her paws up, because if I don't, I still get mega-scratched! But she didn't put her paws up! She jumped! Just like she used to, no hesitation, no halting! She just jumped up and sat on the counter, all proud of herself. She did it the next night, this morning, (just to show off I think, not her usual time for a drink) and again tonight! My baby girl feels better!
And the last picture!
It has been chilly here. Not freezing cold enough to put a heavy blanket on the bet, but enough that we put on a second sheet for extra warmth. And ran a space heater, which both cats are afraid of!
I know I've shown video of Leo playing from under the sheet, grabbing his birdie or stringy and being a goof under there. When it got chilly, he started sleeping under the sheet! Oh was it cute!
He'd curl up somewhere near Greg's side usually and Greg would be careful not to kick him, to the point he'd be sleeping with his legs off the bed! Leo will spend the bulk of the night completely under the sheet, cant see him, but the lump shows he's there. He does not sleep under both sheets, just under the top one. Two would probably smother him!
Then it started to warm up a touch, we moved the second sheet aside. Didn't put it away in case it got cold again, but left it on the bed, unused. Unused, that is, except for by Leo. But he's feeling warmer too, so he's not fully under the sheet any more. Well, you just have to see for yourself!
I'm snuggy warm, purrrrzzzz
Greg made sure he was tucked in good, and yes, this is the way he stayed most of the night! How cute is that?
Edit: Oh my gosh, I totally forgot to mention that one night when it was really chilly, Greg says he woke up to turn over and swears there was one cat on each side of his legs! Star and Leo both sleeping on the bed, together, with both of us here too! I sure hope that was not a dream.. MOL
