She rarely relaxes around me. It was only last winter that she started actively sitting beside me on the couch while allowing me to pet her. Even when she’s snuggling with Miles, she keeps a watchful eye on me, guarding her man from the two-legged predator.
I do my best to not disturb her when she finally does give in to sleepy peacefulness. There’s a progression. Sookie on her side, belly floof exposed is definitely an adorable start. It’s when she goes for the upside down head and even more belly that she’s really having a zen moment.
I watched the couples version of her relaxing over the course of a morning (I have grading but would rather watch cats sleep)
You can see her changing head and body positions for the deepest sleepiest stages. Until we arrive here at the apex of couple cuteness. So much floof.
