I surprised Mom again last night. We have a rectangular bed on the couch in the family room that is like a pad. It was put there for us kitties to hang out on while Mom and/or Dad are watching TV. Mercy and Pebbles love to knead on that bed together!
When Milo was here, he used to hang out on that bed and I would curl up really close to him and take naps. Mom was watching TV last night and I jumped up on the bed and starting rubbing up against her and staring at her, so of course she started talking to me and petting me. Before she knew it, I plopped down next to her and started kneading her and the bed and fell asleep against her. Mom cannot remember the last time she ever saw me kneading anything or anybody, let alone sleep against her. She was frozen for the next hour or so until she had to get up! By then, Mercy and Pebbles were on the bed so I sandwiched myself between them.
This may not sound like a big deal to most kitties, but it is a big deal for me. While I rub against my brothers and sisters and Mom's and Dad's legs, I typically sleep alone these days. I do play and it's not that I hide in the house; I am just somewhat skittish, so sometimes it takes months to a year for me to exhibit a new positive behavior. Patience! Always a good thing when it comes to me.
