Shoulder Sunday

My Disciples,

We’ve  been learning a lot about Mama Cat’s personality since the Guardians swept her up in The Capture and brought her into The Promised Land. As the stress of her life in the world without walls begins to fade into memory, more and more of her True Spirit is shining through. One example of this happens every time the bigger Guardian brushes his teeth. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean.

Mama Cat on Guardian's Back

See what I mean? Who knew Mama Cat liked this?

And the Guardian doesn’t even put Mama on his shoulders. He just sits on the edge of the bathtub and she jumps on his lap and then climbs up on his shoulders herself. She then lays there giving kissy eyes and purring, and she occasionally gives him an excited nip on the shoulder. It’s such a funny thing to watch that I decided to name today “Shoulder Sunday” in honor of this activity. I think Mama will approve.

    thank you, Guardians, for sharing Shoulder Sunday!

  2. What a sweet girl, she sure has come a long way.

  3. Dear and esteemed Leader Otis, I think I might be able to hear what Mama Cat’s thinking. “How can I show my gratitude to the Guardians for all they’ve done for me? I know! I’ll help the bigger one groom himself! My purrs, kissy eyes, and shoulder nips will encourage him to continue brushing. The better care he takes of his teeth, the longer he’ll be around to take care of me. Also, to be honest, loving human touch just feels so good.”

  4. That mama cat has got skills AND personality! woo woo woo!

    Mama Cat’s story just keeps getting better and better! She obviously has so much love to give, but had no one who wanted it after her special person passed. That photo is simply awesome! I love kitty kissy eyes.

    Our Person used to have a Shoulder Wrap Cat. He lived in the dairy barn on her family farm. He used to run up to her, jump up onto her shoulders and drape himself around her neck like a living fur stole. The only time he would jump down was when she was bending over the water trough. The rest of the time he would just lie there and purr. His name was Tiger. Bandit, Selleck, and Their Person, Emily.

  9. The electric toothbrush also probably feels and sounds like purring so it feels and sounds like a proper, group, kitty-cuddle time.

  10. Awww, she’s a snuggler! Gotta love Momma Cat, and she sure seems to love your guardians!
    Is it a coincidence, do you think, that TODAY Star decided to sit on my shoulder?? She’s never done it before, but she settled in like she was going to take a long nap there! She must have heard through the grapevine/cat-line that it was Shoulder Sunday!

  11. There is nothing in the world better than kitty love.

    That is a very sweet looking Mama Cat. She looks like she’s never known worry or strife. The Guardian must feel honored to be the shoulder for Mama Cat.
