Warm Winter Hearts

Stygia: How should a cat spend her winter days? Staying as warm as possible and soaking up every millimeter of available sunlight. Couple this with a wise gaze to let humans know how insufficient their own appreciation of sunbeams are. Make them feel like they are missing something.

Abby: For once, I am going to agree with Stygia. Sunlight is to be cherished. I try to choose a location that allows me to keep an eye on Ms. C. Dangling a leg allows the sensation of great freedom and decreases pressure to my limbs, promoting the best relaxation.

Don't you wish you were me?

Even better is "Occupying" a human when they are in bed. Ms. C was sick over the weekend, so I had a fantastic weekend as she slept to recovery. I slept under her right arm. I slept curled under her left arm. I slept on her chest as my nose practically touched hers. I slept between her knees, and I slept draped over her and Mr. R both. When Ms. C was not available, I spent a little time bonding with Mr. R as he read a favorite book:

We agree, humans' appreciation of sun is a puny thing. We should get ALL the sunlight.
Purrs for Ms. C!

Abby, you sure were busy helping everyone have some restful moments in the bed. That is so nice of you to keep Mrs. C company while she wasn't feeling well. You sure were a huge help. Our Mom appreciates the sun beams. Sometimes we have to whap her out of the way. Take care and have a great day. We have about 5 tabbies that live here.

It's true, Abby. Humans just don't understand how great sunpuddles are. We bet Mrs. C will get better in no time with you taking care of her!
