Well, over the last week, we have noticed a few things.
We have a routine at night. Feed and clean up after the kittens and play with them for a few minutes. Clean and feed everyone else here (no idea why those kittens get to go first). Then mom does a few things around the house, gets ready for bed and reads in bed for a little bit. Most of us pick a spot on the bed with her and lounge around.
A few days ago, Junior jumped up and looked at mom. He then got back down but didn't run like he normally does.
Last night was huge - mom says it was all she could do not to giggle. Mo, Maestro, Tim and Tom were up on the bed. Tommy was snuggled in next to mom's feet. Mom felt someone jump up on the bed and saw the top of an orange tail over the top of her book....ooooo Junior. She held VERY still..... Junior walked over to Tommy and got love kisses on the head. And then....Junior laid down next to Tommy. And stayed on the bed for almost 5 minutes. Mom didn't move but kept glacing under the edge of the book to see what was going on. Something in the hall caught Junior's attention (no, it wasn't Spud) and he stretched and walked away.
HOLY MOLY!!!!! Wonders never cease......
