Nicholas can't stand the cold.
"What's wrong little buddy?" I asked as he shoved my laptop out of the way and stretched his big frame across my lap.
"I need love, Momma, I need love to warm my cold, cold, heart. I might die of the cold." He said.
I looked at the room thermometer. "Honey, its 72* in here. That woodstove is throwing like 55million BTU's and I'm in shorts. You aren't going to die of the cold."
"So cold....." He woed......."Sooo.... soooo.... cold...." The huge cat sniffed like he was gonna work up a tear.
"You wanna go watch the birds in the window? I just gave them some more food. That's fun - looking at the birds, right?" I hoped to snap him out of the winter of his discontent.
Nicholas needs my love to keep him warm.
"No." He mewed pitifully. "I'll just stay here in your lap. Your love will keep me warm."
It is a fact that cats have slightly higher body temperatures than people and I was getting hot under this enormous fur blanket draped all over me. Also the room was getting warmer thanks to the big load of wood we got over the weekend.
"You sure you don't want to get up and go and do something, Nicholas?" I asked squirming under our largest cat. I was starting to lose feeling in my legs.
"No, Momma, I'll.... just...... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."
And he was asleep. I was trapped under a heavy Nicholas or the better part of an hour on that, his most recent Hard Day which was the ninth of such.
We can do this, people, right? We can get thru this next cold stretch? Please? Someone? Someone please say we can DO this?
