I'm usually half awake when I make my way downstairs for morning coffee. Minnow is waiting for me at the bottom of the stairs, and puts on a show, a cute little half roll and pulls her paws up tight against her chest. It's such a good act, (and she knows it), I can't resist bending down to pet her. She looks like a seal. Then she escorts me to Clovis' room where he is sitting in his cage waiting to be set free for the day. It's almost like she's making sure I won't forget him. Early on I learned if I stuck my finger through the cage to try to pet him he'd growl at me, but for some reason lately, he seems to like it when I reach in to give his little head a scratch.
Such a nice way to start the day.
