This morning Charlie woke up and came onto the bed for a visit before we got up. (It was quite snuggly under the covers so we didn’t want to leave.) He was very insistent about receiving sufficient affection and both squeaked and purred up a storm about it. Garrus came onto the bed as well but he had not yet decided whether or not he wanted rubs once he got there. Boudicca arrived late to the game but was more interested in receiving morsels from Aaron than anything else. I think the cats were cold this morning, and that is the factor that underlies their neediness this morning.
Charlie discovered my desk today! Three times he sat on the window seat near the corner of my desk, tentatively put his paws on the edge, and then invited himself onto the desk so he could investigate everything. I’ve been able to pick him up from the desk once when he blocked my view of my dual monitors. I held him against my chest in a snuggle and he purred very loudly about it!
Charlie: Hi Mama. Whatcha doin’? *squeaks*
Me: I’m working at my computer. I will give you rubs, though.
Charlie: What’s up there? I must see for myself! *jumps onto desk, sniffing everything, blocking my screens*
Me: Ahem. Charlie, this is not conducive to working. I need to be able to type and see my screens.
Charlie: What’s work? Besides, I’m cute and more important. Love me?
Me: Oh, alright. *picks him up and holds him*
Charlie: I can get on board with this snuggling thing. *PURR PURR PURR*
Garrus: Excuse me. I am looking for warms. May I sunbathe here?
Me: Absolutely. *gives rubs*
Garrus: *gives mournful look* I’m cold. Please fix it. *finds a stretch of sun and turns into loaf cat* I will contemplate the universe from this location. This spot of warm is acceptable.
Boudicca: This is why I LOVE my bed. Sunlight hits it just right in the morning so I don’t have to get up! And I have my pink blanket. The blanket makes my bed in a box even better. Y’all are jealous of my awesome box-bed.
