Who’s Stealing Whose Heat?
by Cat Crazy
It’s been a lot colder out in the last few days and we finally got a bit of snow that seems like it’s going to hang around. Three-to-four times per night, my pillow pal has been coming in and demanding a spot under my covers, against my side, and draped over my arms. He’s also had the “snow sillies” with lots of late night and early morning sessions of noisy cavorting with toy mice on the stairs. Often, he’ll take his toy and bring it up onto the bed and chase it around on top of me (thank you very much!). He was so jazzed up on New Year’s early morning that I awoke to the distinctive sound of him banging on the wind chimes that hang over the Newel post at the end of the hall. However, for all his animation when he’s up running around, once you get him settled down and tucked in under the covers — whether in one of the kitty beds or in my bed proper — the little guy doesn’t want to move. He gets that funny scrunched up sleepy face and only comes out from under the fuzzy blankets when food is about to be served. Can’t say that I blame him!
