I may have pushed my luck a little too far today.
I celebrated my birthday yesterday and felt that it was my rite to be able to hold my cat. I've been patient and he's come so far...this is just the logical next step right? This is a very traumatic thing to consider for my Marble but I feel like it's time to take the plunge and try.
WELL.....we had company over and he ended up hiding the whole day. SOOOOO, needless to say, there was no holding or cuddling happening. Today he nuzzled my leg and begged for attention.
This was my chance.
I was feeding my little munchkin her Cheerios when a heavy weight pushed against my leg. I reached down to a handful of fur and gave Marb a good scratch around his ears and a few strokes across his back. Purrs rattled the floor and encouraged me to continue. He flopped to the floor, legs out, and tan belly exposed. I tossed a few more Cheerios on A's tray and shifted in my chair. A few more rubs, a scratch here, and then I slowly maneuvered both hands around his body. He squirmed a bit, unsure as to what was about to happen.
|Needless to say, this was not from today.|
Looks like I won't be getting cuddles any time soon.
