Animal Magnetism

The cool weather means that animals are seeking out a warm place to spend the winter. Like in my bed.

I woke up last night to find one of the cats curled up against the top of my head, a dog resting against my legs, and another dog pressed against my torso with her head on my shoulder. She looked at me. I looked at her. She licked me on the mouth before I could turn away.

Who can blame them? It’s already freezing in our house. The cat is smart enough to know that most of your body heat escapes from the top of your head. Rather than staying warm by wearing a hat, I am wearing a cat.

Fortunately, I don’t need much room, but it’s getting ridiculous. Now I’m wondering if an electric blanket or something might tempt the animals out of my bed and down onto the floor where they probably belong.

Yes, we’ve been down this road before, but people, I am on the verge of surrender. At least with an electric blanket on the floor I could just curl up down there and let them have the bed.
