Sunday Selfie From Instagram

Happy Sunday! 


Thought I'd share one of my Instagram photos for today's Sunday Selfie. 

Mum is really in love with this photo. She took it the other night when we were getting ready for sleeping. I was gazing at her as she was trying to fall asleep. I stare at her like this, watching her as she tries to doze off, but I know she can feel me looking and she keeps opening her eyes to stare back. We slow-blink to each other (she always keeps a night light on, so she can see me). Her iPhone was by the bed and she hadn't turned it off so she quickly took this snap and posted it to Instagram. 


If you sleep with your human, what is your routine before nodding off to dreamland?

That is a beautiful photo, Athena. I like to lie om my mum when she goes to bed. I rest my head on her chin and purr to her. Then I turn around and shove my butt in her face to go to sleep. I don't know why she doesn't appreciate it and says she is getting the bum deal.

I do have a routine Athena. I climb up onto mamma's chest and lay there with my arms straight in front of me...touching her neck. Mom starts petting and scritchies right away all over my cheeks, headie and pets my chest-bib and down my back. She speaks softly to me. I leave after 10 or so minutes after she turns off the light. Then I come back with my toys and leave them on the floor next to the bed or in the bed. I announce each one.

That is so sweet. I love the idea of creating some kind of wet nighttime ritual. Mine usually involves brushing teeth and furs. It's a binding moment, for sure, but I certainly couldn't get sweet photos like this from my grooming session. The kitties tolerate it, but they don't adore it!
