I use my Android phone as my night clock / alarm on a charging dock next to my side of the bed. Last night Mr. Verizon decided that 3:15 A.M. was THE perfect time to do an upgrade to the system. I was awakened by the blinding light of the phone, no longer in a dim clock mode, doing its upgrade. Of course, the moment I awoke, I realized I had to make a trip to the bathroom.
I no sooner addressed the porcelain appliance, than I felt a tiny fur bearing, purring mammal rubbing against my ankles. When I finished my business, I scooped the little critter up and placed him on the bed while I crawled back in under the covers. I was just drifting back to slumber land when little Rocky, purring as hard as he can, walked up my body, got on my pillow and laid down, his head touching my forehead (I was lying on my side). Then he reached out with a tiny kitten paw and placed it on my cheek.
There was no way I was going to let myself fall back to sleep while this tenderness was going on! How sweet and precious, and I wasn't about to miss a second of this special moment in time! We stayed that way for about 5 minutes then Rock got up and moved to the foot of the bed and I was able to slip off to sleep. But, wow! What a wonderful kitten Rocky is...and he just walked into our lives out of nowhere!

Rocky, you are too sweet!
What a great story....he obviously sensed something special too. Hope you have MANY more moments like that (maybe at a better time of day most of the time though...MOL)
