My little girl likes to snuggle. Any time I lie down, she comes running to come curl up with me. She might not stay long, but for at least a handful of minutes, she’ll cuddle up into me and knead while she purrs. Usually, she seems to stay until I fall asleep, then wanders off. Sometimes, she stays for hours.
It’s so nice. I loved Meanie a lot, but she was never a cuddly cat. She would lie ON me, but didn’t savor petting or want you to touch her in any way. Luna, on the other hand, likes it if I pet her and often enjoys when I curl my arm around her when she cuddles in.
It soothes my heart and sometimes, when I ache, I take a few minutes to lie down just so that I can have those moments with her.
