|Angel on the round rug, waiting for hugs|
Which is why, before the alarm is due to ring, Angel will start a quiet meowing, as she calls to us for love and reassurance. After years of trying many things to get her to be quiet in the mornings, The Hubby and I have learned (more like, have been trained!) to simply join her on the round area rug, and give her quiet petting time. When she has a human to herself, in the gentle morning, Angel is like a rose at full-bloom. She is adorable, beautiful, loving and gives of herself. Those are precious moments for us. Angel, our shy wall-flower!
P.S. I'm telling you, go to visit The Way Of Cats to learn a TON of cat stuff! Patty O'Malley is most definitely an Alpha: staying involved in everything, demanding attention. Chuck and Sweetie fall into the Beta type: curious and communicative.
