Sammie’s Tail Part 33
Bettinna is quite smart to interact with us. Bringing us her toys, picking out her toys to play with. She loves to watch out the window. She uses her face, head and paws to open the blinds. She eats too fast so I have a few types of feeder toys that she has to remove the top to get to the food, or forage amongst obstacles to eat.
Sammie is a slower eater and likes to take breaks, so I have to watch both of them as Bettinna likes to eat all the food. She tends to try to cover the food still today as she must have done outside to save food for herself.
Sammie’s new thing is she took over the bed sleeping with Daddy and Mommy where Bettinna loved to sleep with Mommy. Sammie prefers Daddy, but does ask me to pet her and brush her many times. We learn their body language and especially Sammie’s to know what she wants. She gets so excited a bedtime and no matter where she is in the house, Daddy calls her to bed and she comes and sleeps next to his face.
The odd time she comes over to our heads and breathes on us and licks our nose. Wow. So cute. Bettinna does this with me often and when she wants me to wake up like today, she kept rubbing herself on my head. When I wake up in the morning, Bettinna loves me to pick her up and she curls up in a ball like a baby and I walk and rock her and kiss her. She loves to rub her scent under her chin on me and with me on my bed or wherever we are first thing in the morning.
When I come home or when she prefers, Bettinna flops down right at my feet. I could hurt her and step on her and have learned to be careful. This means pick me up Mommy.
