Snuggle Pile

After Cora came home last night and calmed down, Sarah and I basically clung to her all night. She slept between us, her head on my shoulder and one paw on Sarah. She purred lazily until her eyes grew heavy and then she simply just went limp, breathing slowly. Sarah had her arm around her and I had my hand on Sarah with Cora's paw over mine. (Mia slept at the foot of the bed like she always does, the little aloof Maine Coon that she is)

I couldn't stop looking at her. She has such a sweet little face and I've always been over-protective of her because she's so little and frightens easily. I was so afraid she might have been wandering around, gotten spooked and could have run into traffic, or a bigger animal could have hurt her (which it appears that did happen, but it was minor. There are LOTS of outdoor cats in Watertown), or she could have simply lost her way home.

When I woke up this a.m., I noticed Cora's feet as she slept sideways. Her little pads and claws are caked with mud and little bits of pine needles or something. I'm dying to know where she's been! I finally fell asleep at about 3:00 a.m. and woke up at 8:30 because the idiot house-buyer Dan had the painters banging around. Who does that this early on a Sunday?

Anyway, I fed Mia and Cora and afterwards Cora sprawled out on the floor while Mia cleaned her head. It was pretty funny because Mia never washes Cora and you could tell Cora loved it.


I can't WAIT until we're finally completely moved out of this circus house. I hate that so many people have keys to all the doors. It'll be nice to be somewhere where I don't have to worry about crazy (Natalie), irresponsible (Dan) landlords.

Thursday... Hurry up and get here!!!!
