Thoughts on Thursday


After they took the Granddaughter home, Mom and the boys stayed in yesterday and played wii. They have done that today too! The boys tried to talk Mom into letting them stay up late and play. Mom told them they had to talk to Dad (typical parents). He made a deal with them that if they went to bed on time (almost) they might get to stay up late tonight and go the Amazing Jake's for more laser tag, bumper cars and go carts. They promptly went to bed, but not to sleep! Again, typical boys!

I , Angel, have been very friendly with the boys. I am a very shy kitty even around Mom and Dad. Having Illyana and the boys this summer has taught me that it is OK to get close to people. I have let all the boys touch me. I still will not get in their laps or get too close.

I observed Illyana getting in Mom's lap when she was sat the computer. I have been trying it. I don't stay long, but each time I stay a little longer. Mom gives me lots of pats, rubs and scritches. I think I like this.

I have also been asking Dad to pick me up more in the mornings ans late at night. I stand on the bed and raise my paw and speak clearly. He stops what hi is doing and picks me up and loves on me! I think I like this too!

Mom: We are making progress. We hope some day the Angel will no longer be shy and be a lap cat!

Oh, Angel, you'll find that being a lap cat and being loved on are GREAT! You should definitely do it more often. It's not just for when you have surgery! ;)

Which blends right into Bugsy's thank-yous for your continued good thoughts for his surgery and recovery and the welcome home! He's very glad to be home now and be able to get on The Mommy's lap.

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

It's great to see that you're opening up, Angel! You have a great family that loves you very much.

Angel, we think you're gonna see that being a lap cat is the best!

Karen Jo said...

Congratulations on your progress, Angel. I think you'll find that you like being loved on more and more as time goes by.

I am not a lap cat either! I freak out when my mom tries to hold me. But I do like being petted.

I just left Reese's blog. She is shy too. Is that a trait of tuxie kitties?

CCL Wendy said...

I think maybe Angel still misses Illyana so he wants lots more cuddles from you. That's definitely not a bad side effect!

Amy said...

Oh that is great news that Angel is coming out of her shell! I bet having Illyana there helped and then having her go, and things calm down a bit, helped too. I hope that she and Kirby don't miss Illyana too much!

Angel, it's really nice that you're becoming less shy. Being a lap kitty is a wonderful thing! We are sad that Illyana doesn't get to play with you and Kirby anymore, but it sounds like she's going to have lots of fun in her forever home.

Angel, it was very clever of you to observe Illyana and learn from her. It is difficult to trust humans when you haven't learnt it at kitty age, but you are doing mayor progress. We see a lap kitty future for you!

Angel, we fink dat you is makin' progress an' dat is a very good fing ta be doin'. Youz have a good momma an' dadda so trust youz ♥ an' know dat they will nebber hurt youz.

CCL Wendy said...

Sounds like you all had a good visit with the grandbeans and sonbean, even if they did smell like Illyana and the others. I'll bet you still miss her a whole lot, too!

And as far as Kirby goes, I'm positive that he did not forget his name. He was just being a typical kitty and ignoring you, especially since he knew you were upset. You know kitties -- they like to just stay out of reach to taunt you. Good thing you were able to grab him, though.
