Cookie Says, “Thank You!”

Someone has to keep an eye on things out there.

“All your good thoughts made their way to me and I feel much better. I’m back to keeping an eye on the neighborhood.”

It has to be that, I only changed a few things for her and today she is stronger and more interactive, still a little unsteady but definitely a different cat from yesterday. I might fool myself to think it might be a bit of a turnaround, but I just don’t get the feeling Cookie is ready to give in.

She got up on the shelf on her own but climbing up my camera bag and purse to my lap, to the keyboard tray to my desk to the shelf in front of the window. She’s gotten up and down the steps, and up on the kitchen table to get to the cabinet, which she couldn’t do for a few days.

And Kelly is feeling a little better, no longer spending the day in Narnia in the back of the closet, so today I had the pleasure of two tortie cats on my lap again as I worked at my computer.

Cookie and Kelly settle on my lap again.

Mewsette takes her responsibility seriously and tries to fit on my lap with the girls; she thinks she is tortie-sized, but she is easily twice tortie-sized. Initially, Mimi was balanced on my knee cap, and Mewsette was trying to settle, four cats on my lap. My lap is really not that big.

Persistent Mewsette finds a way to nuzzle and give a few licks to her little big sisters. Here is Cookie from the front and Kelly’s rear, and you can see the white inside of Mewsette’s ear just above Cookie’s ear.

I am just a big warm cat bed.

      Susan, thanks for following Cookie’s progress. We’ve been slipping a little, not sure where that’s going.

      Robin, sometimes I feel so lucky to live with these wonderful cats!

    Lovely to hear about Cookie, Bernadette. And ask Kelly exactly how she makes it into Narnia — I’ve been trying to do that for years. Maybe she has her own Very Important Cat pass.

      Tammy, Kelly has always had that formerly-stray ability to just vaporize, even inside the house. She decidedly has the VIC pass, as well as a Subtle Knife.

    Nothing like a warm lap for cosy cat comfort. Glad Cookie is doing better 🙂

    And what could be nicer than to be a big warm cat bed?

      Oh the joy! How you ever get anything done, or eat anything that does not contain 30% black hair and 25% tortie hair in it…Oh the joy!

        That’s why I made it part of my daily activities to take these photos and do the sketches, hoping eventually it will pay off!
