I have decided that sleeping with Emma isn't so bad. Mom got really sleepy after dinner last night, so she lay down on the bed to watch TV. We both know that means cuddle and petting time. Emma jumped up first and got all comfy close to Mom's face. I jumped up next and made myself comfy right next to Emma.
Karen Jo: You actually cuddled up to Emma. Your shoulder was up tight against her rump. Emma murped about it a couple times, but didn't move away.
This morning was great. We finally played THoE for real. I chased Emma down the hall and when I turned around, she chased me up the hall, so I chased her down the hall again and she chased me back up the hall again. Then we took a little breather and I started to chase her down the hall again. Halfway down, she suddenly lay down and waved her paws at me. I just sat down and looked at her.
Karen Jo: It looked to me like Emma was inviting you for a bit of kitty wrestling.
It could be, but she had never done it before and I didn't know how to react.
Emma: I am having more fun here. Every day after lunch, Mom puts the toys away and gets out different ones. She tosses them toward me and I play with each one for a bit, then wait for the next one. They are all great fun. I really enjoyed chasing Herman today, too. Now that I am absolutely sure that he won't hurt me, I can enjoy playing with him more. He doesn't seem to know about kitty wrestling, but maybe I can teach him. He kept showing me that it was all right if I chased him back, but I wasn't sure about it for a long time. Maybe he feels the same way about kitty wrestling. We have each pounced each other, but it wasn't for play, except for the times that Herman just ran at me and tagged me with his paw or started to chase me. I think things are just going to get better and better.
