I love how animals always know when you need them. I am home sick today and I got on the computer to check my email and my cat jumped right onto my lap trying to get me off the computer by pulling my keyboard off the desk. After he finally gave up he curled into a ball on my lap while i pet him. He just wanted love.
I stopped petting him for a minute so I could quickly respond to an email and he took that as a good time to climb up me and sit on my shoulder. I have never had a cat decide it wanted to act like a parrot, but I guess this one thinks that his place is not my lap but instead my shoulder. I wish I could get into his mind to see why he decided to do that. I want to know what makes a cat want to sit on someones shoulder.
His fluffy friendship makes me smile every time he comes to cuddle up with me. I don’t know how some people don’t like animals when I love mine so much. Last night for instance, I finally bought my rat a ball. Every time I went to the pet store to get one they were out of the size you need for a rat. I got home with it and put him in the ball. He couldn’t figure it out at all. my cat came over and pushed it a little and helped him learn what he was doing. It was the most adorable thing ever. Though, after the cat left the rat couldn’t seem to understand the ball anymore. I’ll put him back in it later and see what happens, but this time I’ll bring out the video camera.
