A Warm Thought on a Cold, Winter’s Morn

I’m sitting by the computer trying to decide what I’ll write about today.

But I’m distracted. June Buggie has joined me and we’re having a moment.

I put my head to his. He nudges me, and we nuzzle. Β He purrs, and then lies between me and the laptop.

Maybe his old bones need some warmth on this cold, January morning.

Or he’s showing the others that, for right now, HE is number one.

Or perhaps, he just loves me.

I prefer the last thought.

  2. I’m having a similar moment with my old cat… She’s 19 and spends most of her time sleeping now, unless there’s food around!! June Buggie is beautiful!

  9. I hear ya! My red tabby hasn’t stopped nudging me all morning–they can probably sense the bitter cold even with the heater’s best efforts!!!

  10. What a heart warming pictures they are! I’m very sure that June Buggie loves Jen!!! Me and my mom are so jealous of Jen because his cuteness is so irresistible! My mom wishes that she could touch him in real….so adorable! πŸ™‚

  15. Cats are wise. Sometimes they know they need to remind people what’s important: being here and enjoying now.

  20. He’s a stunningly beautiful cat!

  21. Rumpy, I think June Buggie does love and wants to snuggle. People and pet snuggle with people and pets they love. He’ll do that with Jen too.

  22. I love those moments. Jen, I’m sure June Buggie does love you and the exclusive attention you give him. Our Reggie, a female, will sometimes jump on my lap and stare soulfully into my eyes before she eventually wanders off for a soft spot on the sofa.

  23. All of the above probably LOL!!!

  25. Very sweet! Linus like to sit in my lap when I am typing. He swats at the cursor as it moves across the screen – not at all distracting πŸ™‚

  28. My precious Maxwell always jumps into my lap when I’m at the computer, then proceeds to walk on the keyboard.

  29. Cute! I often wonder why Maya likes to lay at my feet so often. Is it because she loves me or because my feet are cold and since she gets hot so easily, my feet are very comfortable?

  30. he loves you its that simple…
