A Tale of Tails: Monday Meowsie News
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!
(hover cursor over photos to read captions)
First a big shout out THANK YOU to all those who have been leaving such encouraging comments for me and The Kid Sage over the last few weeks as we continue to work on being together.
We have come a long way from here…11/14/2013
To arrive here…06/15/2014
I am especially grateful to all of you who have left such positive reinforcement for me…helping me think about what having a kid sister can mean relative to having a playmate, a pal to nap with etc.
Now, not that ANY of the above has been going on in this house…oh no!…no way…not in the least…unless by accident or if I am caught napping. But, more about that ‘caught napping’ part in a bit.
But wait until you see what has been happening in just the last 7 days!
I have begun to find enough courage to actually leave my bed in the living room, and carefully walk, not slink, across the room while The Kid Sage is in a chair with Dad P or sitting on the floor near him…and I slowly make my way into the kitchen to get a snack or find Mom L for some pets. TA-DA!!
I am doing this pretty regularly now and Mom L and Dad P are leaving us out together when they run errands and go to the gym. Never more than maybe two hours, but still…my paw tracks on moving forward!
July 1, we started out pretty close in the living room…a new ‘close’ for us…with both of us totally relaxed…so they left us alone for a couple of hours…I was right in my bed when they returned and The Kid Sage had moved to the upstairs tower…not bothering me at all!
Now in the mornings when we are all watching the news and reading iPads and whatnot…in bed of course…The Kid Sage has begun to walk from the bottom of the bed right up to Mom L (passing me and my hisser like she hears nothing) to get what is now her expected morning brushies and scritches. And she has found her way onto Mom L’s lap!
Not sure how I like seeing The Kid Sage so up close and personal with ‘my’ Mom L…have to think on that one for sure.
And we have even shared morning snacks right in bed using Mom L’s legs as a dining table…I had to cut out Mom L at her request as she was still in her nightgown….*snicker*…but the iPad is on her legs and I am facing The Kid Sage and sharing some snacks with her…will wonders never cease!??
And yes, the wonders have NOT CEASED…the tale of the tail meeting the nose…
How was I to know she was right there…I was just flipping my tail with pleasure because I was getting some head rubs…
As you can well imagine…The Kid Sage could not contain herself after about 5 minutes of me flipping my tail on her head. She reached out lightning fast to grab my flicking tail…only Mom L was faster and grabbed her outstretched paw with those talons of hers out ready to catch my tail!!
Finally…the Tale of the Two Tails…yes…our tails have now met…unknown to either of us. I was asleep next to Mom L and The Kid Sage was sound asleep on her lap…and it just sort of happened…
Neither of us really knew what was happening…we were both so at peace sharing snuggles with Mom L in the morning in ‘our’ bed. One day I may let The Kid Sage actually spend the night in ‘our’ bed…but not yet.
