I just posted the other day about the girls Fourth Gotcha day. I had totally forgotten that I was going to share this picture then, but I'm also kinda glad I saved it for Thankful Thursday!
In recent times I've posted pictures of all three of the kitties sleeping in the same area, ie the bed. Not exactly cuddle piles, but some of them actually touching! But all on one single piece of furniture! That's big news around here because while they love each other and play with each other, they do not sleep together. The girls came here bonded, but even they, once they settled in, decided that sleeping alone was better. Silly cats, don't they know they're supposed to sleep in one big furry pile?
Anyway, as thrilled as I have been about them sleeping in the same vicinity, I was surprised by this just the other day:
Ok, that pink in the middle is ME and with me are THREE kitties!
Leo is on the far left. That is his favorite sleeping spot, he's always there just behind my arm on my pillow pile/arm rest. He likes to grumble at me from there if I type too much.
Cashmere is next to him, leaning on him and is in the spot she likes to sleep in when Greg leaves for work. As long as Leo's not with me. They don't share. (until this time!)
Glitter is on the other side, back end on the other arm pillows, doing supercat across my stomach. She likes this spot in the middle of the night, even if Leo is already with me. She never cares what the other cats think. She will lay there as long as she wants scritches, then she will lay where Cashmere is, but with her butt toward me and her head hanging off the other side of the pillows. Again, even if Leo is there and he grumbles about it because.. she don't care what the other cats think. We call her the unflappable one. She cannot be flapped! Even if Leo gives her a slow paw of doom to the top of the head, she stays, she just turns away from him. No flap!
Anyway, see why I'm so thankful!? Three kitties, no whappy paws! All snuggle loves!
(Ok, Glitter always looks grumpy in pictures, it's her beautifully tilted eyes squinting at the flash and Cashmere was awakened by her daddy moving near. She's very aware of every move he makes)
It only lasted about 20 minutes, and of course they choose to do this on one of the hottest days, but I loved it! Also thankful that Greg woke up in time to get the picture before anyone moved!
We're thankful for Brian's blog hop too! Hope you all join in!
