It’s all fine and dandy to go outside pre-dawn with Mom for a walk but it was beyond cold out there this morning. Brrrrr……so of course when we got back inside, Mom fixed some hot chocolate for herself and while she was doing that, she wrapped me up like a little sausage (pig in a blanket??) on her recliner so I could get warmed up.
I look good enough to eat – right? Well, maybe not but there’s one thing for sure……..I look cozy.
Here’s the thing though……while I’m certainly warm on TOP of me, I’m not warm NEXT to me or UNDER me. That takes one very important ingredient which was missing while Mom made her hot chocolate. Her LEGS! My own personal hot water bottle!
You’ve seen enough pictures of me on Mom’s lap or legs to know that’s my favorite spot – especially on a chilly day. She’s my Mom and I love her dearly but she’s also my source of WARMTH….she’s my cozy spot. I’d probably sit on Dad’s lap too but he’s too squirmy for me. Mom can sit still with me on her legs for HOURS while she reads or watches a movie or something…..and I stay nice and warm and toasty. A guy learns these things from kittenhood you know – where the best place in the world is to take a snooze. Yeah, sure – the sunny spots are fine, the window perches are great, Mom and Dad’s bed is nice and soft and yummy, even the front porch on a warm summer morning is grand but – quite honestly – the BEST place is with Mommy the Human Hot Water Bottle!!!
Oh goodie – here she comes – she’s about to read the Sunday paper…..that means she’ll be here for a while…..I can relax…..I can snooze….zzzzzzz
Happy Sunday Morning Peeps!
