Froot Bat Friday
The Kids' Mom here. I didn't manage to get Titus' Froot Bat picture downloaded this week. (Sorry T!) So here's a little pic snapped with a camera phone last night while he was cuddling with his Dad. He's been kind of worn out for the last couple of days, as you can see.
I borrowed the blog today for a couple of reasons. I wanted to thank all of you for your purrs yesterday. They really helped me feel better. I also wanted to tell all of you about the great job Titus, Tazo, & EG did while I was under the weather.
Titus is *so* tired for a very good reason. From the moment I first got sick last Friday, until Tuesday night, he left my side only to eat and go outside. Whenever I was in the bathroom, he would lie in the hallway and wait for me. If I got up for any reason, he would follow me around the house until I made my way back to the couch. When it came time to go outside, he would just run outside, do his thing, and then come right back. (And he *never* wants to come inside.) He didn't try to drink my Vernors or eat my saltines or jello unlike certain others around our house. I just wanted to thank my boy for being such a special dude and for taking such good care of me. I promise that I will catch up on the cuddles and scritches this weekend.
I would also like to thank Tazo and EG for their help during my illness, too. They worked very hard and took very good care of me. I want to publicly apologize for the lack of stinky goodness during my illness. Daddy had to handle mealtimes for a couple of days and well, Moms are just better at some things (like doling out stinky goodness without retching). Things are back to normal now and I picked up lots of cans of your favorite flavors last night. Thank you for the cuddles and purrs - especially you, EG, because I know how you feel about purring for me. And, EG, thank you also for not putting the bitey on me when you earthwormed under my sweatshirt. I think you might be softening toward me a little. :)
Our plans for the weekend include cuddles, scritching, and catching up on stinky goodness. We wish all of you the same. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
