Critter Photo #26

Posted on: January 9, 2017

bootsie_danceWith our household of critters having expanded to include three cats and a dog, I thought it fitting to join a meme related to pets. After searching around, I came across Awww….. Mondays. The one rule is: “Post a picture that makes you say Awww…. and that’s it.” Every photo seemed to feature a pet and so the meme is a perfect fit!

In my last post, I told you about Cinder and play time. Now it’s time to tell you about my interactions with Bootsie.

Moment #1: Early morning, I turn on music in the living room to wake me up and to exercise. I stretch my arms. I shake my legs. Then suddenly to my surprise I’m greeted by Bootsie. She sits to my side. I reach towards her and she arches her back for a rub. As I continue to move to the music, she turns this way and that too, waiting for attention. And so we dance together.

She bats at it. I swish the wand through the air. She ventures out of her and keeps watch on the wand. Back and forth her head goes as I whip the wand around. Then she jumps and strikes and–down goes the wand! And so we play together.

She stares at me, caution never far from her. But soon enough she makes a decision. She hops up, strolls to my lap, and promptly lies on top of me. Andy and I take turns stroking her head. Bootsie utters a low and steady purr. Her eyes start to shut. And so we rest together.

Spring Reviews

Almost a year after I announced that it was time to take a step back from this blog, Allison's Book Bag is still here. I'm slowly working back up to weekly reviews again. Each week, there will be one under any of these categories: Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, religious books, or diversity books. Some will come in the form of single reviews and others in the form of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:

  • Freddy the Frogcaster and the Terrible Tornado by Janice Dean
  • The Distance Between Us by Reya Grande
  • Hearts of Fire from The Voice of Matyrs
