Every day is a reminder on how little time we all may have left.
Mabel is starting to show his age. These days Mabel snuggles more and more. Our daily ritual has transformed into me putting my hand into his home two or more times a day, Mabel crawls out of his nest and hops into my hand. Mabel will fuss for a few seconds and then snuggle into the palm of my hand, often sleeping 15 minutes or longer, depending on his mood. After his naps(s)I put him back in his home and offer him a treat and then he goes back into his nest. But, sometimes he immediately demands that I take him back out after he eats and it is very hard to say no to him.
