Inching Forward

The Littlest Feline is slowly making some progress. Beginning a few days ago, she began sleeping on our bed at night, sometimes even if Frieda is there as well. Her cue to migrate from filing cabinet to bed is the fan, which Alexis uses as white noise so that he can sleep. The only catch: she sleeps across my chest and shoulders, basically on my face.

Cat therapy. Hmph.

I love her little red nose.

I often wake up to Cleo sleeping on my head these days. Maybe they think they're protecting us from the "other" animals, or else we're like home base (ie. "safe!").

I think it's more of a safe thing. When we first adopted our kitty, she slept on our faces/head/neck/chest for the first few months and then felt comfortable to migrate towards the foot of the bed. Now everytime we go out of town, once she's done being angry about it, she reverts back to sleeping on our faces for a few days. I think the warmth, and breathing and heart beat sounds are comforting to an anxious cat who enjoys their people company (I believe infants respond this way too).

Hooray for Miss Olive! She looks happy sitting on your sweater.

She looks like she's basking in the sun. I always love your pictures for their unusual take on ordinary things--one of my favorites was the one of your kitchen that you posted along with the mice-in-the-dryer story. Beautiful!

Olive looks like that in most photographs taken with a flash-- she involuntarily closes her eyes just like I do.

As long as the fat cats don't start sleeping on my head, I think it's okay...for now, at least. Let's just hope that our human children don't follow in the same footsteps.
