I have a lap full of purring kitten.
Angel is stretched out on his back, purring like a...well, like a kitten and getting a belly rub.
With a side order of under-chin scratching.
What a life!
Usually he runs and hides after I've smeared the ointment in his eyelid, but today he just retreated to the couch for a moment, then came right back.
I introduced him to one of the neighbours yesterday, she asked how he was doing and I said would you like to meet him? since his vaccinations are now complete and his eye is clearing up nicely.
K said of course, yes please, so I brought her inside, and Angel came running right up to meet her.
My boy is not at all shy or afraid, which is something I am very pleased about.
You want to know what else he likes?
I was grating some for my dinner and dropped a few crumbs onto his dish. He polished it off in no time and asked for more. I didn't give him more, I need to check first if it's okay for him to have cheese now and again.
Angel has also had a tiny amount of raw beef that I trimmed off the potroast before I cooked it and a raw chicken wing on another occasion. He played with that all over the kitchen floor as he chewed on it, so I had to wash the floor, but I didn't mind.
It's a tiny floor, washing took less than five minutes.
He also comes sniffing around if I'm making a tuna sandwich, so of course he gets a little tuna.
I cannot eat a tuna sandwich with those big golden eyes pleading with me for a taste.
And a taste is all he needs. He eats it and goes off to play.
