Doozy of a Snoozy

In a previous post showing Mauricio and Cooper Murphy snuggling and touching paws, I asked if it was a Burgeoning Bromance or Accidental Encounter. Well a bromance it is not, but the boys are getting closer—at least while they are snoozing. And less ear and neck biting and smacky paws are happening. Before I snapped the following photos both Cooper and Mau took the opportunity to touch each other on the head a couple of times. The taps were tentative and light with no malice. Progress!


Snuggle Buddies

I did not add that mouse for cuter, more “squeeable” photos. It was already on the bed, and the boys ended up curling up around it.

Cooper rarely sleeps on our bed. If he does join us, it is usually only for an hour or two and then he retreats to his bedroom ham-mick. Some nights he doesn’t even come upstairs. Instead he sleeps on one of the ham-micks in the dining room. I really miss him on those nights, as I enjoy watching him sleep. He’s usually on his back with legs akimbo and just as cute as can be.

Feeling Puny

Mauricio is not feeling well. He did not eat his dinner Sunday night or last night and only a couple of bites of breakfast yesterday. I offered him some kibble and Temptations mid-day, but he turned them down. He’s been curled up in a ball most of the day with his head buried in his paws. He got really hissy when I picked him up and tried to hold him. I’ve checked him over as best I can and cannot find any external clues as to what is going on with him. Just as I am finishing up this post, he ate a few Temptations, but if he doesn’t eat his breakfast, I’ll be taking him to see Dr. Neel.

I know a trip to the vet will really make him extra grouchy. If you can say a few prayers and send some POTP that he’ll perk up, start eating and acting like himself, Mau, Dad Tom and I would be most grateful.

With many thanks.

Those sure are exquisite squee pictures!

We are purring that Mau will not be too ill, and that he will feel much better soon. Sending much POTP.

Lots of purrs and wishes are sent to Mau and and his mom and dad. When we are not feeling good, the whole household is upset. We are hoping its just one of those bugs that will disappear quickly. We love ya Mau!

Purrs and prayers are coming for Mauricio – poor baby. We hope everything will be okay and he just has a little upset tummy for the day. We love, love, love the picture of the two other kitties cuddling. I sometimes wish I had a sisfur (other than human) or a brovver to cuddle with. M is going awwwww over that picture.

Boys are so different. George is not a cuddler; never was. But, neither is Grizelda. They are sweet and smart, though. Maggie loves to cuddle, but Chloe Jo is my real cuddler.

I am sending prayers for Mauricio. It sounds like he may be in pain, and that concerns me. I am glad he has Cooper to be a pal. HUGS.

We are sending a pile of POTP to Mau and will be anxiously awaiting news this morning – either he’s his “old self” this morning OR off to the vet to figure out what’s up! As for those photos of “The Coop” and Mau – NOTHING could be more adorable than those boys having a brotherly snooze-fest! Mom thinks they look PERFECTLY CONTENT!

Love, Teddy

Hoping Mau will perk up. What a sweet pic. Hoping you guys will continue to snuggle. Do you think CM is using the mouse for protection?? MOL. Or maybe he is comforting Mau. Purrs to you, Mau.

We used to sleep close together often but now we only sleep close when our human is between us. She is trying to get us to sleep together other times but we prefer it when she’s a buffer.
