Lucy has a talent of presenting her paws when cozied up for snuggles in bed.

One paw out means she’s pretty relaxed and doesn’t mind a bit of jostling that occurs when we join her.¬†Two paws out means she’s pretty much ready for sleep if not already asleep. Warm enough that she isn’t balled up or harassing us for comfort.

  • Mouth movements like she was eating something – Check
  • Eyes half open with inner eyelids half closed which made us think she was having an issue but in reality was just being a tweaker in her sleep – Check

She wasn’t responding to our calls. Jonathan shifted the pillow behind her to make sure she was ok. She woke up….and glared at us for the next 10-ish minutes.
