Having a pet is always interesting. We have two crazy cats and they are great for providing laughter, comfort and distraction when it is needed.
We’ve never had cats that will poof up for no apparent reason, even while purring. They still let us pick them up and everything. Our other cats would’ve clawed us if we did that. Drew hisses at hubby out of frustration when they are playing….it is nutty.
You would think after five years they have finally settled into their habits and there is nothing new for them to do……but over the last few months that has been proven wrong….lol
During the very cold parts of winter, Drew finally learned that it is nice and warm crawling under the blankets to cuddle with mommie. His sister, Sakura, usually sleeps in the middle of our pillows, partial under the blanket while demanding that hubby has his hand on her…..or she’ll sit there and stare at him until her puts her into her usual spot. Or she’ll nose him. =)
Now that Drew has discovered cuddling under the blankets, he jumps up on the bed, on my side, near my head and starts to paw at the blankets, while staring at me. I’ve opened my eyes a few times to see his paw coming towards my nose to wake me up.
Twice in the last two weeks, I’ve been woken by Drew hissing! First time, he was pawing the blanket, but I obviously wasn’t waking up. So he hisses at me, I open my eyes, he is just looking at me…..he didn’t look upset or in pain…..as soon as I lifted the blankets he crawled right in.
The second time, I had my back to him when he jumped up……I’m like “really???” So now he is using a hiss to wake me up and let him in….rolling eyes.
A few mornings ago, I woke to a dream of something wet on my nose…..opened my eyes and Drew was very close to my face and staring at me. I’m not sure, but I think he nosed me, I really think he did……..ggeeezzz
Sakura is a whole another ball of crazy. She is definitely a “daddy’s girl”. Her association with me, is when she wants something….like jumping on me and running me over to get to her spot on bed, if I have treats or the big thing, a brush. And not just a cat brush……my round prickly brush. She will run into my leg and trip me to get into the bathroom, jump on the toilet seat and look at me……if I don’t brush her, she starts rubbing against me.
She use to do it once in awhile, but the last few days she has gotten very demanding. Anytime she is not sleeping and even think I’m heading back there she races to the bathroom and just stares and stares and stares…..it is nutty. As soon as I grab the brush, that she is eyeing, she starts purring like crazy…so loud. Hubby calls her a “purr monster” She’ll grab the brush, while you hold it, get her claws into and rub her face against it.
There is nothing like having your life ruled by your cats. They really let you know that they are allowing you in their lives……lol
