Possum Warms Up

Possum has begun visiting me before dawn, purring away and curling up on me as I try to fall back asleep. But he knows how to stick his cold little nose up my nostril to wake me up so I'll pet him.

I love it, of course. But no wonder I'm so sleepy all day long.

A couple of mornings ago, our bedroom was very cold, and I was very tired. I stopped petting him and rolled over, feigning sleep. Then I felt him crawling under the blankets; soon he was stretched out against me, warming my back. He napped under there for quite a while. So he's a burrower: I never had one of those heat-seeking cats before. It's going to be like having a fluffy hot water bottle!
