It's no fun being without my favorite lap! Hurry home daddy!
Star and Leo have been pretty good. In some ways it's been nice sleeping with both of my kitties. In another way, it's been pretty warm! They're staying as far from each other as they can, meaning Leo on my feet, heating those up, and Star practically under my chin, blocking any fan air from getting to my face! I've been breathing so much cat fur that I'm about to toss my own hairball!
I've also caught them almost playing together! Star gets in the open window and will use the screen to sharpen her claws. This draws Leo's attention and he comes up over the chair to peek at her. She jumps out and chases him! No hissing, no growling! And then he'll chase her back a few paces then they break and run their separate ways!
I CANNOT forget to tell you about Star and a special visitor! Star hates company, HATES it. Strangers make her run! Leo too. He might stick around long enough to see who it is, but then he runs off and hides. My dear cousin P came over. She has recently become a cat person after being a doggie person forever! She came to pick up a set of Winnie's Wish toys for her new kitty, Lucky!
Star was in the window behind the chair P was sitting in. This flipped her out so she ran out. Then decided that was the safest spot and ran back in. As we sat talking, Star crept out of the window and sat on the table next to P. I was sure as soon as she reached over to pet her, Star would bolt!
Instead, she leaned into her hand and begged for more pets! She was making a spectacle of herself! Rolling her head, leaning in, rubbing on her hand when she didn't pet fast enough! She did everything but roll over and beg for tummy rubs! Cousin P is one of few people Star has made friends with, how cool is that?!
And Leo? He made an entrance too! He ran back and forth through the room, mostly as exactly far away from the company as possible, but he was out! P picked up his red stringy and tried to tease him into coming closer. He gave it a few whaps, but kept out of reach the whole time, little brat boy! But at least Star gave her a stamp of approval!
Leo: Yeah, I know Star seemed to like the peoples, but I have to be more cautious just in case Princess Hissyface is trying to draw me into a false sense of security, then WHAM! Some stranger picks me up! *shudder*
Star: Go ahead and say I'm getting soft in my old age, whatever. She was a good petter. That's all that really matters, right?
