We had an unprecedented event last weekend.
Rufus jumped up onto the bed without encouragement, and while it was already occupied by cats and humans. He’s been on the bed before, but only when it was empty or when one of us put him there for easier pettings.
So this was a big step forward.
He stayed there for several hours, using my leg as a pillow while he slept.
Even more impressively, he hung around after I got up.
And went back to sleep, despite Mr. Thugbutt’s presence.
Of course, he hasn’t returned since, preferring to return to his usual haunt:
That’s the back of the futon in his room (formerly known as the library).
But overall, we’re pleased. It’s nice to see him try something new from time to time.
