Red Blanket

Red Blanket

A couple of years ago, Ellen got me the neatest gift for Christmas.  It is a small electric blanket--about 6x6.  It is just perfect for a chilly house like mine.  I like to keep it in our TV room.  Thunder, over time, has become very attached to it.  One of his favorite activities has turned into watching TV.  Actually, I don’t watch much TV at all--it has been months.  I sign out TV series from the library, instead.

Thunder has become obsessed with Red Blanket.  I usually don’t have it on, but he still keeps bringing me to it.  I walk up to him, and he trots away, with his tail up in the air--his signal to follow him.  He brings me to Red Blanket so I will sit and pet him, or give him pieces of dry cat food, one at a time.  

He rolls, stretches and purrs.  He begs for pets.

This happens many times a day.

He likes it so much that he is more tolerant of me grooming or brushing his teeth on Red Blanket than anywhere else.

I have taken to sitting on red blanket--instead of my favorite chair to read in the quiet part of the afternoon.  I turn it on low, and he gets so content.  Anything that makes Thunder happy, makes me happy, too.

10 Years!

Today is our 10 year anniversary.  Ten years ago, my life got brighter and happier, and he has continued to be the brightest light in my life.  I dote on Thunder, constantly.  Good thing he is a cat who likes to be the center of my attention all the time.  He never complains of me helicoptering.  He wants me to!  

In honor of our anniversary, tomorrow evening we are having a cat party.  I will get some fresh nip, and we will cuddle or play.  Maybe we will do both.  Whatever he feels like, that is what we will do.  That’s how cat parties work.  

I can’t wait
