Comeback is getting brave. Goway is still a nervy little beastie; he spends his days in Little Fish's cupboard or under my duvet, venturing out at night to meep loudly until he gets food and fuss. But Comeback has decided that laps are good things, and has taken to seeking them out.
Little Fish is not sure about this.
I think that's called "how far away from this creature can I get whilst still remaining in contact with Mummy?" It is accompanied, entertainingly, by a small voice squeaking "Go away, Comeback". Comeback is cat. He is above such things
Little Fish is curious, desperately curious. And whispering about wanting to "Doke(stroke) de woofcat". I am encouraging this. For the past couple of days she has been reaching out, asking to cuggle or doke him, getting her fingers nearly to his fur, but then running away as soon as he takes an interest.
This afternoon she decided on a closer inspection.
And then decided to be very brave indeed
Talked about it lots, took lots of encouragement, reached out, and
"DOKE DE CAT!". Well done, Little Fish.
She wasn't impressed with the thought of him climbing onto her own lap, but once he'd moved to the other side, was perfectly happy with her new captive audienceand cuddled up to read him a story.
Mog came back from school shortly afterwards, and Comeback decided he needed a new cushion.He's a very friendly purrmonster/fluffball combination. But I worry that this picture gives a hint into his true mind
"I will rule them all, puny humans"
