Today I want to share a brief happy moment that includes a first for Harvey.
I will be using this picture again but want to shine a spotlight on it now as this is a special happy moment. Here’s why.
Harvey has taken over four years to be confident around Dash Kitten dad Paul. For a long time, he refused to be stroked or brushed by anyone except me.
This smartphone photograph was taken a few days ago after Harvey was over the worst of his dental extractions. He had been for his follow-up check and continues to look as good as a stage 3 kidney disease cat ever could.
It is lacking in focus and was taken from about 2 metres (about 6 ft.) away, and in a hurry but, as I have said previously in a post, it is a magic moment and capturing it had little to do with quality.
Here Harvey calmly walked on to Paul’s lap and enjoyed chin rubs and head scritches for a long time before stepping on to the heated bed covered in a fleece blanket. Paul was thrilled as this was Harvey’s own idea not him patting his lap and encouraging Harvey to take the step.
Thankful Thursday comes up with some lovely happy moments if you are a regular reader of Brian’s blog. Does your cat surprise you with uncharacteristic poses?
