Now, I should mention that Melly's usual nighttime routine is to come and say hello before retiring to the floor or the foot of the bed. She likes attention when the humans are awake to actively bestow it; she isn't interested in sleepy nighttime cuddling.
But, as I said the other day, Melly loves Josh. Adores him. So, when we came home Monday night (or, very early Tuesday morning) and immediately flopped into bed, it was only partially a surprise that Melly jumped up and quietly draped herself across Josh. Absent were her usual vigorous head-butts, nips, and demands for attention; she just wanted to snuggle her darling.
This was the scene when I woke up Tuesday morning. The close proximity lasted about a minute before Scarlett became offended and departed.
