Wordy Whiskers Wednesday




A bit of a wordy Wednesday today. I know we are posting rather a lot of videos lately, but I'm afraid Mum's become quite obsessed. She's like that you know. She can go through months dry of any inspiration and then suddenly BOOM! A wave of creativity hits and she cannot stop. It doesn't last long though. She will eventually wind down, I promise you, and then she'll just want to retreat into her cave (our bedroom), dive under the duvet and will probably not have another urge to create for months.

I do however continue to be a great source of inspiration and comfort for her. Apart from being a very photogenic cat and advising her on what to blog about, I am also there to provide the soothing purrs and huge love and affection I know she needs to feel better. I encourage her to take naps in the afternoon with me when things become overwhelming for her. And of course I provide endless laughter with my crazy antics and the funny faces I like to pull occasionally. I love hearing her laugh!

So I think I should let her off for sharing this embarrassing video of me rolling around ecstatically on her bath towel (it smells of mummy and that's great, but it also has the scent of lavender oil from her bath).

Lavender might not be for everyone (many associate it with Granny smells and Mum isn't old enough). Well, she is actually, but don't tell her that. Lavender is very good for depression and aids restful sleep, which is why she likes to add a few drops to her bath. The towel seems to have absorbed it though, hence my delight.

Anyway, let's end this rather wordy Wednesday post with the video, shall we? Hope it makes your humans smile too. I give you the permission to laugh at me, a goddess. It's OK. I am happy to provide fun entertainment for my friends, readers and fans.

ENJOY AND SHARE!

Maybe your mom should add a few drops of lavender to your bedding - you certainly seem to enjoy the scent! :)

You look adorable, Athena! Thank you for letting Mum share the video. My kitties are a comfort to me like you are to your Mum.

I can see you liked it- did it help you sleep?

That looks delightful, Athena! What an adorable video -- thank you and Mum for sharing it! :)

You are so cute, Athena! I love the video. Thank you for taking such good care of your mum. I know what a big job that is because I have the same problems she does and Cinco and Manna have to help me. They have to remind me that when I am getting wound up, it is time to go lay down until the emotions subside a bit. Stay strong! Being a person with a big heart is not easy in this broken world.

You are really enjoying that towel, Athena!

My goodness, you're having such a fun roll in the towel. I've never smelled lavender. My mom never has smelly things in the house, even good smelly things, because they make her nose all stuffy. I hope you get to enjoy a smelly towel again soon.

Marie Symeou said...

Thank you for those words, Robin. I'm glad you have Cinco and Manna to help you through the tough days. Cats are amazing and so sensitive :) xx

I love my Mum's scent, that's enough to help me feel all loved and comforted. I like to sleep on her clothes or on her.

I also enjoy licking Mum's freshly washed hair but she won't let me.She doesn't want me choking on it.

Very relaxing. It helps me sleep. I also drink a herbal tea which has it as an ingredient.

Marie Symeou said...

Athena doesn't need it to sleep, but I do sometimes :)

Marie Symeou said...

Glad you enjoyed it :)

Marie Symeou said...

It's fun!

Marie Symeou said...

Mum isn't keen on smelly things either and she worries about how the smells will affect me. Some may not be so cat friendly :)

Tenacious Little Terrier said...

Mr. N loves to roll around his bath too. I'm sure you smell great!

You are just too, too cute. Whenever our mom tries to video us doing something, we stop immediately and do not continue. We're happy you didn't do this as we wouldn't have been able to see how much fun you were having. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, MistyMay, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
