ManCat Monday

There's big news at my house.  Something happened that I've been waiting for since I moved in.  That means I've been waiting for 2 years and 3 months...like forever!

Everyone knows that I just love Ellie.  She likes me, but never really lets me get that close.  When she has offered up a lick I get over excited and I throw a big beefy paw around her sweet neck and try to wrestle with her.  She hates that and she scolds me and runs off in a hissed off huff.

Mom coached me to be more patient.  She said when Ellie offers up a lick I have to resist ALL urges to put a paw on her.  I was told to just sit there and do nothing and all my dreams would come true.

And it worked!!!  Ellie came up to me while I was on mom's lap and she started to lick my head.  I just sat there and pretty soon she was scrubbing both of my ears and washing my whole head.  I PURRRRED!  I purred so loud I'm sure everyone in the whole world could hear me.

I'm a happy cat.
