This is Snowy. He joins the family this year. Snowy is dancing to LMFAO’s I’M SEXY AND I KNOW IT.
I had to catsit (not babysit) my partner’s cats from Saturday to Sunday. Well, they are mine too! I don’t go over his place as often as then. Thus, I was really surprised when I feel Snowy’s love! Look at how cheeky and naughty this little one is! Snowy kept playing with me in the middle of the night! Look at his icy blue eyes!
Spending time with Snowy, the other 2 are already asleep. Snowy is watching the news.
Snowy was a little smelly, so it’s SHOWER TIME! I pity him. He couldn’t stand the cold water. He was noisy and I can hear the ‘help me’ in his voice. When I opened the door, true enough. Both Nikki and Tuffy were waiting outside. They came to the rescue. Normally after their shower, I dry the cats by wrapping them in towel.
Wrapped in a towel, Snowy fell asleep while I hugged him. After some time, I hang the towel to dry so that Snowy can lick himself. Before I could turn on the laptop, Snowy parked his butt on top of my laptop. He tossed and turn and conveniently rested on my arms. I couldn’t move at all!
And that’s Snowy resting on my smelly pillow. No one could stand the smell of that. No one but Snowy.
This is the first time Snowy and I got sooo close! At night, he kept on brushing against my face when I was sleeping. Oh yes, earlier in the day, he remained motionless when I cut his nails! That’s a first.
The lesson I can draw from these 2 days is that if you allow yourself to love others, others will love you. Be it humans or animals. I agree that love takes time but hey, it takes two to tango and two hands to clap! The norm is for people to say ‘give yourself time…’ and I don’t deny that. By giving yourself time, I believe you’re taking baby steps. Baby steps are good but why bother, when there’s a faster way to build relationships: open up. To acquaintances. To colleagues. To neighbours. To anyone you wish to. Trust me. Try it!
