I haven’t said much about Shalimar lately – but by no means has she been keeping a low profile!
Shalimar is one of the few constants in my life. I can’t believe she will be ten years old in December (she has two birthdays – a BIRTHday in December, and her adoption birthday in February – the day before Valentine’s Day!)
It’s been cold cold cold here – well okay. MILD. Like England in the summer. But I have been freezing – so now that Spring is springing up, I’ve been much happier. It’s my favorite season. It’s Shalimar’s favorite too.
I have to admit, Shalimar has been very much in the dog house lately (cat house?). I’ve been out more often during the day – meaning my bored kitty cat SLEEPS. All day long. Ah the life!
It means she wants to PARTY ALL NIGHT!
Being kept awake makes me a right grump. Especially because Shalimar is fascinated with my head and face. She will come up to my face and head bump me over and over, or just lay her face against mine (until I’m gasping and blue). It’s very sweet – but one needs to sleep!
Maybe this will help?
It’s better than my current idea – balancing an old aerosol bottle of deodorant on my head. Shalimar is terrified of aerosol cans and won’t come near me. But I’m not very good at balancing things on my head awake, let alone asleep.
Have you ever done something silly to get a good night’s sleep?
