Rose spent the entire day sleeping in this spot. She didn't even get up for snacktime.
I wish I had followed her lead and napped all day. It was the perfect napping day!
Much of the US has been experiencing a major heat wave with toasty hot temps. Not so here, it has been a very cool summer. Today it only got to about 57° F and it was rainy. Rain in July here is quite rare. I read somewhere that we have only had 5 days this month when the temp got into the 70's and the average temp has been less than 60° F! Crazy summer! Here it is the middle of July and we are still running the heat here - this might be the summer where we use the heat year round!
Buddy has been grumpy to all the cats, I imagine in response to Willow's unfriendliness. The others give him lots of space.
Yesterday, Theo tried to steal Buddy's snack as he often does. Theo was in for quite a surprise when Buddy smacked him hard. Go Buddy!
I witnessed a beautiful moment today. Buddy was napping on the bed when Nahum popped up for a quick visit. He very gently approached Buddy and sniffed his head. Buddy didn't respond so Nahum tentatively licked Buddy's head a few times. Buddy leaned into it the licks, prompting Nahum to relax. A few more licks and Nahum left him alone before he changed his mind. This is exactly the thing I want for Buddy, to be welcomed by the other cats.
Nahum is a delightful fluffy gift!
