“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”
Every Wednesday, we explore different ways home is changed, improved, and complicated when cats are part of that home.
Hello! It’s Natasha. I hope everypawdy is doing well!
Abbey got to talk on Sunday, and Connor got to talk on Monday. So when Mama came home from work really tired, I told her not to worry about Wednesday’s post. I would take care of it.
Mama has been working on a big project at the place where she works. When she gets home, she says she’s “exhausted,” and I hear her talking to Papa about “worries.” I don’t know the details, but I know it sometimes makes Mama sit too much and not play with us. And let’s just say it, sometimes it makes her grumpy.
So then I know it’s time to show Mama some affection.
Affection is what humans call it when us cats purr and sit on your lap or right next to you. When we give you head bonks and kisses.
I’m not much of a lap cat. I like sitting beside Mama and Papa, just not much on their laps. But not too long ago, I thought I would show some affection and sat on Mama’s lap. It made her so happy. Such a little thing, but she smiled and smiled and even took a picture.
I think I made her feel better. With something called affection.
