It took several months for her to want to venture freely into my bedroom. Now she makes her way in there all by herself quite often. It took over a year for her to purr more frequently around me. (I thought she just didn't purr.) I was also ecstatic when she began sitting in my lap on her own for extended periods of time and making biscuits. She usually comes to sit in my lap several times a day, especially when it's cold outside.
Now, Callie has a confession to make as she's picked up a new sweet cat habit. And because today also happens to be Cuddle Up Day, it's the purrfect time for this announcement. She likes to sleep under the blankets with me. And I LOVE it!
This started happening within the last month or two. I was sleeping one day and in the morning I felt a cold nose nudging my face and arm. It was Callie. I groggily lifted my arm and blanket up a little and she crawled under and just slept right next to me.
This is something I never really expected that Callie would like to do, but it's now become a regular routine. If I take a nap, she sleeps with me too then. I even caught her sleeping on top of the Cat Daddy one time.
If she's had her fill of cuddling under the blankets with me, she just helps herself out but will usually sleep somewhere nearby on the bed.
I'm not sure why Callie suddenly decided she wanted to sleep under the blankets with me, but I have two supporting theories. For starters, it's colder now and she likes to sit with me more during the winter. Also, it's a good hiding spot from kitten Roadside. He does pester her quite a bit and chase her around the house. He can't get to her if she's under the blankets though.
So that's it - Callie's confession! She likes to be spooned! Happy Cuddle Up Day, friends!
