I'm Sleeping With Someone New

Since Eddie dropped me at my mother's house and took off for parts unknown, I have let a new male into my bed. That's right...take a good look. He's got beautiful eyes (like Eddie), is extremely cuddly (like Eddie) and he even wears a bell so I know where he is or when he jumps out of bed to go play with string (like Eddie). OK, so Eddie doesn't have a bell, but I kinda like the idea. I might have to get one for him.

I do miss Eddie's muscular arms, tight buns bumping me in the night and the constant contact he keeps with my body...whether it's an arm slung across my waist or his foot gently nudging mine.

Last night, this little guy slept curled up in the crook of my neck. He was so close, with his whiskers just inches from my cheek, that every time he took a breath they brushed my skin. At first, I thought it was a little annoying, then I heard his purr and knew he was probably dreaming of catnip since he seemed so relaxed and content.

I can think of only one plus to letting him share my bed over Eddie...

He doesn't take up as much room.

If you get a bell for Mr. Eddie then you and I will have to have a SERIOUS talk! Just put that thought right out of your pretty little head :-) Roger that?
