This morning, my day started at 12:30am with Theo climbing on my chest while I was sleeping - he wanted some pets. Time is an irrelevant concept when it comes time for loves. He climbs up on me and then butts his head against my face to tell me "it's time for Theo pets!"
It never takes long before he starts drooling up a storm! I have to be careful or he'll drop a big old glob of drool right in my mouth! Yuck!! What a way to wake up in the night, but I love him and his funny ways. He's one awesome cat.
Later this morning I had a bit of a challenge after Buddy and Nahum both wanting their tummies rubbed at the same time. Thankfully I had two hands and could accommodate dual tummy rubs. When I parked on the couch both immediately hopped up on me - it worked out perfect, Nahum claimed my lap and Buddy parked across my arms.
Nahum melted into my lap
Sadly, I eventually had to displace an unhappy Nahum and Buddy so I could go to work.
Upon returning from work this evening, Oliver was waiting in the driveway to welcome me home. I parked and opened the car door to say hello to him while I gathered up my things. He just couldn't wait a moment more, so he hopped up in the car with me, sniffed around for a minute and then parked in my lap!
Oliver followed me onto the back porch where I topped off his food bowl. I sat by the backdoor to love on him for a few minutes when in walked MK! He looked at me loving on Oliver and went over to the food bowl and had some dinner. This was a first! MK sharing the enclosed back porch with me only about 5 ft (1.5 m) away! I didn't risk snapping a picture and scaring him away - what a very sweet moment!! Soon I'll be rubbing his tummy!
For the sake of a photo, Oliver graciously offered to re-enact
the moment of MK's sharing the back porch with me.
The best parts of the day were starting the day with cats and ending the day with cats! Now, if only I can figure out a way to integrate cats into the middle of the work day.
