We haven't been very active recently. Mom has been very worried about Uncle but he's doing better right now. Mom feels better about his situation. Even though the cancer can't be cured, it is being managed to allow him to have the gift of precious time with his family. It's been 22 months since his diagnosis and in January of last year no one was betting on more than three months.
This post is to share some very wonderful news. I actually got in Mom's lap on my own. As most of my friends know, I have serious trust issues and haven't been a lap cat since I came to live with Mom over two years ago. I've let her pick me up and hold me for a brief time but then I want down.
Well when Mom came in from Uncle's this afternoon, her first order of business was to visit her litter box. While she was sitting there, I hopped up on her lap all by myself. She said something about "a belated birthday present". I sat there and sat there and sat there and snuggled and purred and Mom loved on me and loved on me.
I haven't done that again this evening but Mom's hopeful that this was the turning point. She likes lap sitting cats and snuggley cats and she's always hoped that I'd be one of those.
We wanted our Catster friends to share in our news before anyone else.
