Twinkie lap girl

So since Bao has been gone, Twinkie has been an utter love bug. EVERY time I sit down, she gets on my lap. When I go to sleep,  she lays on me. All night.

She’s always followed me a bit like a dog, but she hasn’t been this attentive since she was a kitten.

While I do think some of it is reveling in getting ‘all’ my attention… I think she misses her little buddy. She’s asking to play ALOT. Her tiny meow and leading me to a toy. Or her food. Or the other room…to nothing.

The other room is sad… that’s when it feels like she’s asking where he is. She even tried to trot out the front door, which she hasn’t pulled in a long time.

Sigh.

Uhm… it’s Spring, mama. I sheds.

Uhm… it’s Spring, mama. I sheds.

Home with a cold. ..  Twinkie is a superlative bed buddy.

Snort snort zzzzz

Snort snort zzzzz

Happy lap kitteh.

Bao flashback.

Bao flashback.

little Humbao, my happy clown, had to be put to sleep tonight. Everything kind of came crashing down healthwise in the last few weeks and to a screeching halt today. He was struggling to breathe and not responding to anything the vet tried. 
He was THE most loving, gentle cat I’ve ever had. An utter sweetheart who loved everyone, even Twinkie and ‘the vet.’
I’ve known since the cardiologist saw him over a year ago he was living on borrowed time… but it doesn’t make it any easier. 
He didn’t even make it to three.
