Kitties! I help mom every single day. As soon as I hear the bathroom light come on and the sound of makeup stuffs being put out early in the morning, I speed into the bathroom and take up my position on the tub edge to assist her putting on her makeup and to get her hair arranged, combed and made pretty.
She couldn't do it without me, trust me on that. I believe she exaggerates the noise getting her things out so that I will be sure to hear it and come in to assist. All she has to do is reach toward the right side and there I am...ready to be petted and told she loves me. Her hand goes down to me every minute or so even if just for a pat. That's my assurance that she is following my silent instruction,
When she is finished, she takes time to just stay a few minutes and pet me a lot and give up some smooches so that I will know what a good girl I have been. Then she goes on off to work out and have coffee with friends and do some shopping if necessary. She told me that in a few weeks it will cease being so grindingly hot and humid and that means she'll go off to get a couple of miles in before getting home. I was used to it before all the drama started here with her surgery last year but hers all betters now. I'll get used to it again.
Here I am.
