The care from a cat
My assumptions were right. I saw Sally fight with one of the cushions one day. The cushion being at least three times the size of my little cat, I decided to buy her a Teddy.
Love at first sight.
Sally walks around with Teddy in her mouth and 'talks' in a different way.
I have not yet decided if she thinks it is a kitten, or a 'prize-catch'.
What I DO know is that she wants me to acknowledge her Teddy.
At ANY time of the day.
Also at 3 am.
She 'talks-her-talk' until I turn on the light and tell her how good a girl she is.
She now offers me her Teddy.
At 3 am...
And drops it on my bed, beside my head.
