Hi everybody. It's been a while since I last updated my diary. I've pretty much just been hanging around, but today was a little bit special.
As you may know, my brother and dearest friend Lars crossed the Bridge last summer. Even though there are other kitty boys here in the house, I've not really gotten as close with any of them. I guess I sorta took to our little Buster the most in the meantime, I mean, I am his beloved uncle and all. We have started playing and wrestling a little, but I don't like it as much. I will groom him, that is my primary job around here, keeping the baby clean!
But ever since Tommy moved in a few years ago, I pretty much kept to myself, except for Lars. Why, Lars and I were almost like littermates, the way we behaved. I even waited with him, comforting him when he crossed.
Ever since, I have been alone.
I don't like any kitty to fuss on me, don't really like to play, and most certainly did not want anybody to lay down with me and cuddle.
Then Chumley moved in last January. I actually began to relax a little bit, and play again. I have a renewed interest in toys (by the way, I sure do like that darn DaBird thing). I started hunting our catnip toys at night and Ricky Rodent and all. I started hanging out with the fur family more. But I still did not want to cuddle.
Well, I gave Momma quite a shock this morning! Many, many times before, when I was relaxing in the red bed Chumley would climb in there with me, but I always just left immediately. No snuggling for me. Not without Lars, anyway. But this morning, Chumley was all curled up in there, taking a nap after our breakfast. Wonder of wonders, I climbed right in beside him AND CUDDLED UP with him for a nice long snooze.
Momma is so happy. She knows that Lars sent Chumley from the Bridge to be with us. She is happy to see I have a friend to snuggle with, again. And I am happy, too!
Well, I gotta go. We're all trying to get ready for Buster's birthday soon. He will be 2 years old on the 28th. I must think of something special to do for him on his extra special day!
Purrs to you all,
