A Night in the Stewart Household

The house was quiet as I sat huddled in my big ol’ chair reading my latest favorite Shalvis book, The Trouble With Paradise. Giggling, entranced by the words before me I barely registered you sliding up beside me until your tongue slicked into my ear.

“Stop that” I said, pushing you away.

Again your tongue flicked across my lobe.

“Not now, I’m reading” I pushed as I shuddered from the wetness.

I could feel your eyes boring through the book, but I ignored you and soon became immersed once again. You were silent and I forgot your presence. You left me to my book and I settled into the silence of the house and the pleasure of the story. Then a sound caught me and I looked up and slammed the book down.

“Aidan! Quit eating the tree!” I shouted across the room. As usual, you ignored me and continued nibbling on the branch, a hairs breath away from my favorite cat ornament.

“Aidan!” I half rose from my seat and you swung around, fluffy tail held high, slid against the wall and on down the hall.

I picked up the book, settled back down into the chair and began to read again. But I knew you’d be back, fluffy tail, tongue and all.

I have an ear snuffler as well. A cat! A CAT! *g* He's trying to eat your tree? Your christmas tree? HAHAHA! Great post!

Dru said...

LOL at Aidan. He just wanted your attention.

Have a good weekend.

Lis said...

lol So, did he go back to the tree?

Bailey Stewart said...

Yes, Lis, and also with the tongue. I don't know what it is about him and sticking his tongue in my ear.

*shudder* YUCK! It's bad enough when mine sticks his wet nose in my ear and PURRRRRRS as loud as he can. But a cold, wet, kitty-nose? eeeeeeewwwwwwwww!!!!

lol I have one out of 7 that does that. If I let him do it he actually takes the skin right off! I happen to use nose drops and a few cats love the stuff - I have to bury my head at night so they don't get to me!

Melissa said...
