I'm feeling a lot more relaxed living here. It's a pretty low-key place, and nobody wants to hurt me. Someone hurt me in my past, but these people, I'm learning, aren't like that. So now I get pet all along the length of my body and I don't feel like nipping because it feels soooo good!
I can take naps laying against Mommy or Daddy (though Daddy's my guy!) and there are a lot of places that Perri and I trade for naps during the day. My favorite spot when Daddy is not there is the dent he leaves in the couch...it's Purrfect for me!! I roll over on my back and streeetch out and turn over again and then curl up in the little comfy pit.
I do love, love, love the play and every day I get to do some of it, though not as hard as I'd like to...because I can't help but go after Perri when I get into the play. So, I have taken to wrestling with the curvy scratcher thingie, which is really getting beaten up, Mommy says, but it's better than Perri because it doesn't swat me.
Today, Mommy took this thing she calls a 'brush' and used it on Perri and brought it over and let me sniff it. I like Perri so I was cool with that. Then she used it to brush the top of my head, which felt pretty nice. I'm not super sure of my body being brushed just yet, so I sort of slinked away. But, I think I will get there because they are gentle with me and move slowly and they talk really soothingly which calms me a lot.
I sure got lucky and I sure love my Daddy and Mommy (and yes even my persnickety older sister)!
Keep the Catnip side up, furrends!

Sounds like life is just right! I know what you mean about brushing - I have to be in the mood or I'll do the slinky thing, too.
I am so glad to hear you like your home, Mom & Dad. I was abused to many years ago and it took time and patience on my part and my families, but one day I too realized I loved being in my home and especially loved my Mom...her & I had a very special bond and still do even now that I am at the rainbow bridge.
