Good Night Sweet ZenThe deal is, I cannot get shut-eye without Zen. This zen-like cat who thinks he's a dog always sleeps with me--every night. He purrs to me softly and snuggles up to my chest underneath the covers all night long. At 1:00 AM, I telepathically communicated with him all alone in his cozy cat napper in the living room: "Zen, I can't sleep. Please come to bed. I'm so tired. Simon is underneath the comforters at my feet. Skyler is quiet to the right of me. Your place, on the left of the bed is empty and open." But I got a dead calm. No response as I laid between two snoozing canines, young and older.
Suddenly, I felt a familiar pounce on the waterbed and four gentle cat paws of a 10 pound feline saunter up to me. I lifted up the flannel sheet and Zen curled up with me once again. Sweet Zen! We were in human-cat bonding heaven once again. I whispered, "Good night." And like the character in the film "City of Angels" who needed her angel to hold her until she fell asleep--I got my angel cat back and shut my eyes. Thanks to Skyler's good energy and my puss who sensed it it was a good night all night long.
P.S. Skyler, if you don't start herding Zen I forecast a peaceful household and you will be part of the pack.
UPDATE: LAST NIGHT SKY GROOMED ZEN'S FACE! IS THAT DOG-CAT LOVE OR WHAT? OR MAYBE SKYLER IS LIVING UP TO HIS NAME MEANING "SCHOLAR" AND IS KEEN TO POLITICS.
