Over the weekend, the animals sometimes drive me crazy. Running in and out the back door, dragging toys all over the house, Smokie (the cat) whining and hissing because Luci won’t leave her alone, Blacky getting jealous that Luci is getting all the attention, Luci trying to find out why Blacky is getting hugged and she’s not. Last night they made up for it with snuggle time.
Last night I got to snuggle with Smokie (the cat) for almost an hour. Luci and Blacky had gone upstairs and Smokie decided to come out of hiding and snuggle with Mommy. Smokie doesn’t like Luci and will avoid her at all costs. But if Smokie doesn’t see Luci or hear Luci, she knows it safe to come out of hiding. Smokie jumps on the couch and plops herself on my lap. She purrs in my ear and I talk to her about whatever TV show I’m watching.
That lasted about an hour or so before Luci decided she needed to see if what’s going on downstairs. She pokes her head through the stair railing and sees Smokie on my lap. Luci has to investigate why Smokie is on Mommy’s lap. Smokie runs for the basement and Luci chases after her. To distract Luci from the cat, I make Luci go outside to potty. When Luci comes back in, she decides she needs Mommy time. She barks at me until I sit on the floor with her. She plops on my lap and lays there while I watch Grey’s Anatomy. It’s so sweet and she looks so comfy that I sit there even after my leg has gone to sleep from the weight of her head cutting off the circulation to my leg.
This is my reward for dealing with all the shenanigans of these furry four legged children. (Yea, it makes up for not having my Sunday paper yesterday.)
