Life with Cookie, tension & release edition:
I had a friend over Wednesday to work on some computer projects, and it was weird to see Cookie act like a normal cat while we were busy. Wandering in and out and over to her food bowl, not seeming as at-ease on the couch, even standing there under the coffee table again for some reason.
Regular cuddle/resting times resumed after he left. --Except for when I gave her her favorite catnip ball...
