okay FINE it’s too early for a real Christmas miracle & I don’t know if Yule comes with miracles but probably the cold had something to do with it so
YES that is MAJOR TOM & in that picture he is LAYING ON MY LAP
for the VERY FIRST TIME
I basically froze when he hopped up there. He’s been willing to use me as a highway for a while, & to lay near my feet on the couch for a couple weeks, but this? TOTALLY NEW.
They’re terrible pictures & I don’t even care, I’m just glad I had my phone within reach so I could record the moment.
He stayed there for a while, too, even after Loiosh decided he needed some of Momma’s lap too.
It was … fraught.
I mean. The EARS.
But nobody punched anybody, & eventually they settled down.
Eventually Loiosh buggered off, but even when Tom got up all he did was rearrange himself.
He’s done it a time or two since then, too. & let me tell you have an entire MASSIVE tomcat on your lap will keep you NICELY warm … but better hope you don’t hafta pee anytime soon.
