I got seriously smacked down yesterday afternoon with a migraine that is only now ebbing, so I spent the day doped up and trying to sleep through it, missing a whole lot of funny going on here yesterday, prompted by our latest troll.
On the few occasions I did wake up, I was always greeted with the sight of my littlest cat, Foot Foot, curled up in the crook of my arm, or draped over my side. I may have been feeling awful, but she was thrilled to have her momma all warm and still and supine in the daytime. Footie is a snuggler and a darling, and sometimes a horrible little beast (especially to her two big brothers), but her snoozy presence was a great comfort yesterday, as it is most days. I spend a lot of time sitting and reading or writing, and a warm kitty is a wonderful companion. Except when it isn’t, because it wants to sleep on your keyboard or chew on the pen you’re trying to write with.
In any case, today’s FFT is a chance for you to brag about your pets (or pets you have known), past or present. Cats, dogs, fish, ferrets, rats, birds, horses, turtles, whatever you got. Tell us a story, link to a picture or a video*, admit all the stupid lovey-dovey nicknames you give them (Foot Foot is usually called “Weasle” or “Squeezle,” and she answers to both), whatever. Warm fuzzies about our warm fuzzies.
Harpies love pets. And not just for dinner!
