Kats doing well, Lee, though I still have moments when I pine like crazy for Ricky. These guys have nevertheless helped me a lot.
Not only are they bringing in lizards for Daddy, Nero even deposited one for me under the sheets. As they've only been around here a couple months, we're still getting to know each other and I have to remain patient. However, limited tummy rubs are okay, limited cradling is okay. They know I'll stop when THEY'RE done accepting the affection. Charlie now drools. Nero now kneads me relentlessly (apparently I'm HIS property).
