Tigger plays Fetch with the Sock
The point about Tigger is that he's almost always initially wary when I return from a long trip. He's curious, and he would sniff, as if the only way to recognise me was my scent. He would scamper around uneasily. But this would quickly pass, and soon he would be back to his usual self.
This time around, it was obvious that Tigger missed me. It could possibly be a minifestation of what I wanted to see from Tigger. But there were telltale signs that he missed me. He stayed unusually close to me, and followed me around the house. He even entertained me with a game of fetch, which was something that he does not do often. (He has done this before as a kitten, but as with all cats, it really depends on his mood).
Now, for as long as I could remember, Tigger has been sleeping on his little IKEA cushion right next to my pillow, on my bed. On that night I returned, he returned back to the same spot to sleep. It was kinda strange, cos we installed a webcam in the house, so I was sure that he slept elsewhere in the house, primarily at the bay window area of the spare room. What this meant was that, he only goes back to his usual sleeping spot when I was around. When I was not around, he chose to sleep elsewhere.
So on that night I returned, he returned to his usual spot to sleep. Now, instead of sleeping on his cushion, he leaned so close to me that when I turned off the lights, I felt his breathing on my face. Tigger was sleeping so closely to me that he's invading into my personal space. But I guess that's love? So that night, I slept, with Tigger really close to me.
Having a fun plank night while brushing Tigger!
He had to move around to make it even harder for me to maintain stability while brushing him. Tigger has been getting more needy lately, but I am not complaining.
(He's napping right beside me now as I type this).
Here's how we do it:
1. Execute a core exercise movement for 60 sec, 30 days.
2. Video, post online, hashtag #30days60secCoreChallenge and #livethechange
3. Tag 5 friends to get them into action too.
4. Explain why we do it. (transform ourselves and one person at a time). °
I know it is late.
In fact, it is already 12:39AM.
But I have been wanting to write this.
I wanted to pen down my feelings of love.
For Tigger, which must have grown greater
Over the course of the three years.
On a daily basis, he wakes with me.
He sees me when I head to work.
He comes to the door when I return.
He watches me when I shower.
He lies on my lap when I am on my computer.
Just like right now, as I am furiously typing away
On my keyboard.
He then takes his time,
Slowly, but surely, goes to bed with me.
Curls up in his little pillow
Just beside mine.
He would lean his head on my pillow,
And as I give him a peck on his forehead
I would pat him on his back
He would then then purr
And then we will go to sleep.
I love you, Tigger.
That's all I want to say.
