Phoebe & Lucky's weekend
I can always tell when autumn has arrived & winter's on the way because both Lucky & Phoebe spend a lot more time inside looking for cosy places to sleep. Lucky's favourite places will always be under a blanket or rug. This is her new favourite place. It always amazes me how she manages to roll herself up so snugly.
She hasn't given up on my old dressing gown which she's loved since she first arrived.
It was Abby's favourite place too, although she always snuggled down on top of it rather than underneath.
As soon as I sit down in the evening, Lucky's right there, impatiently sitting on the arm of the chair until I'm ready to provide her living electric blanket service.
Sometimes, Phoebe beats her to it though.
Phoebe also follows me around & whenever I sit down - at the computer, at breakfast - she's right there, holding her chin up for a tickle. As soon as she sees that I've brought out my Shetland wool blanket for the bed, she assumes I've done it for her benefit & sleeps there every night.
They don't sleep all the time, though. I bought a new toaster a few weeks ago & Phoebe was more interested in the box,
especially when she spied Lucky on the other side of the room & thought she was invisible because she was in the box. Lucky ignored her, as usual.
I'm an avid reader who loves middlebrow fiction, 19th century novels, WWI & WWII literature, Golden Age mysteries & history. Other interests include listening to classical music, drinking tea, baking cakes & enjoying the antics of my cats, Lucky & Phoebe.
