I leave after she turns off the light. I make my announcements as I come in carrying each toy to the bed side or into the bed. I only make the announcement, go get another of my toys and so on. Then, its time for my bedtime too.
Last night mom was already rogered out when I finally made up my mind to get onto the bed and walk up to her head. She brought her arm out from under the blankie so she could pet me for a few strokes and then she put her arm back under the cover. I walked behind her do-ragged head and made a sharp right turn and settled along side her head. My elbow was at her neck. My soft soft side was against her cheek and my whiskers were tickling along her forehead. I commenced to LOUD purring. Very loud. My purring was loud because I was snugged up against my mom whom I love so much. I love sleeping like that since I was so sick several months ago. I know mom was smiling in the darkness even though I restrict her movement. Oh, and believe it or not she has urged me to move sometimes. Not often.
Thank you mom.
I have Spittola's undies on by mistake...
