Mumsy has started working funny hours at her job - sometimes at night, sometimes during the day. This means she sleeps funny hours too. So we have a new tradition - whenever Mumsy is sleeping, I go into the bedroom with her and we have some cuddle time before she falls asleep. She gets really stressed out and sad a lot, thinking about Ollie and other things, and cuddle time really helps her wind down. That's one kind of cuddle time.
The other cuddle time is when Mumsy wakes up - this is usually cuddle marathon time. She will move her pillow down to the foot of the bed and snuggle up by me - not TOO close, because she knows I will run! She pets me and gives me headbutts and kisses and we play the blinking game, which is the best game in the world because it builds trust - as if I could ever NOT trust Mumsy (except for when she tricks me and gives me heartworm medicine!). This will go on for at least an hour and it is fast becoming the best part of any day. It used to be that Mums could only do marathon sessions on the weekends but now she can do them on almost any day, since her sleep schedule is so weird!
In other news, its Xmas! Today I found a present! Hahaha - and I drooled all over it! Wanna know what it was, Catsters? A catnip strawberry!
Mums is kind of sad this Christmas because it is the first Christmas without Oliver. She remembers how great the last two were, when we all piled into the car and went to grandpawrents house and how Ollie got stuck in the ceiling - twice! Grandpawrents sent a great picture of me and Ollie from last Xmas recently - it made mums cry but she was glad to have it. Its in a frame by the bed now. I miss Ollie so much - he was my little twin and he is always going to be my best friend. But I know that he does not want us to be sad forever - just to remember him and think about all the times that he was happy and made us smile or laugh. And to try and give as much love to other kitties as we gave him. It doesn't diminish the love we feel for him if we love other kitties to - it honors him and what a sweet friend he was and always will be.
Ok, mumsy's eyes are starting to water now... I wish I knew what that meant.
