Kitties! I always perch on mom's chest before she goes to sleep. I get lots of whispers and petting and she gets warm purry furs on her..it's a win-win. I get off after about 15 or 20 minutes and either flop on my red blankie at the foot of the bed or I go off into the dark rooms.
Last night in the middle of the night-- as with most nights--- I came in and made my tiny little sounds..some were on an upward note as though asking questions. Just continuous darling (mom says) tiny little sounds. Wakes her up but she always smiles because she says I sound so sweet. I did that two times last night..a bonus for her. When I do that, I am telling her that I have just brought her a present. Usually my dark brown large fur mouse. It's my absolute favorite. Well, I showed up again just as some light was creeping into our bedroom too..so that was three times! But this time, I just scrambled around on the bed a little after putting something at mom's waist. She reached around and felt a little fuzzy mouse. She went back to sleep for awhile.
When she woke, kitties and woofies, I had laid my FAVORITE tailless black and white mousie that she had rescued yesterday in bed next to her; and on my blankie I laid my dark brown fur mouse. About life size. Then after we got out of the bed she saw another fur mousie on the floor..same size as my big brown mousie and lo--- I had been up on the cabinet while she was asleep, where she has two new fur mice put by in case something happened to mine favorite one, and I fetched it down all on my own and left it on the floor in our room. That was three gifts for Mom. She has been smiling all day.
