I am here on mommy's lap, resting peacefully and watching the sunpuddles that have finally appeared after another 9 or so days of clouds and rain.
I am so relaxed here on her lap. Mom told me it got her to thinking how much we furbabies trust and love our pawrents.
I'm purring softly, frequently glancing upward to mom, softly rubbing her arm occasionally with my face and I am like melted butter here on her lap. It's a gift I give her every time we are sitting together.
You saw me yesterday with my favorite brovver...offering my tender soft and vulnerable undersides to his loving gentle hand...utterly trusting him that he would not hurt or harm me in any way. Same with momma and to a degree everyone who comes across our threshold. I trust them all. Not to the degree that I trust my family, no. But enough to greet them and mark them with my sides' scent. But with mom and all of my brothers, they may do with me what they will because I know it will all be very gentle and soft and loving. They are all cat men.
Mom said trust from a pet, (not that *I* am an animal..I am a furbaby!!! thankyewverrymuch!) such as I show is a gift of thanks to her and all of us who who care for a furred family member.
Mom said because we are family, it makes it so difficult when we have a sickie either mild or severe and if we must leave our family for the Bridge it is devastating. That works the other way too..if our mom's and dad's or other family members we love and trust leave for the Bridge or go far away, we grieve as well.
The bond between we and our humans is as strong as steel. Stronger perhaps. Kitties, go give a headbonk to mom and dad. They love us very much.
