Really? At 1 am?

I just finished baking pumpkin bread to bring to the vet tomorrow. Yes, I baked pumpkin bread for the UC Davis vet…wouldn’t you? We’ve had 5 amazingly awesome months with our girl. He deserves a bit of pumpkin bread. Anyway, this isn’t about the bread. Or the vet. It’s about how I climbed into bed to go to sleep when Caira started staring at me. Intensely. Staring. at. me. I said “you gotta go out?” (even though she just went out) nope. still staring. “your water is right there, you already ate dinner, what do you want?” Staring. Then tail wagging. Giddy tail wagging. (is that possible? you all know what I mean).

I couldn’t figure it out. Maybe she heard the rescue kittens getting into something. Sigh. I got out of bed and opened the bedroom door.

Whoa! Excitement! Caira is dancing her way towards the kitchen. Spinning, Tailwagging, excitement. “Caira, it’s 1 am, what is going on?” I tried to get her to go out the back door. nope. I gave her a snack. Yum, that was nice. Staring. Giddy tail wagging. Then she jumped around in a circle and grabbed her rings. OH yes! Caira Sue wants to play tug at 1 am.

Mind you, all evening she slept on the bed while I was AWAKE. Now that I want to go to bed, she’s playing tug with her rings. Sigh. Yes, you got it. I played with those rings for about 2 minutes. Then I gave her a bone to chew on.

I’m not wrapped around anyone’s finger. Or paw. Or whatever. Sigh. Ok, maybe a little bit wrapped.

Baking at 1 in the morning? Well, that’s the best time to do it, isn’t it? 🙂

I’m sure all the staff at UC Davis are going to enjoy your pumpkin bread tomorrow… or should I say… today! I think I’m going to bake something for Jake’s wonderful vet staff too!!

Nice work Caira Sue, but I like to sleep at 1am! It is great how much a pawrents love us and what they will do for us! Maybe tonight your Mom should make you stay awake until she is ready to go to bed!

I think I can smell some of that bread! Yummy! Did you get to sample any of it Caira Sue??

Caira Sue, you’re such a joy. 1 a.m. is as good a time to celebrate love and life as any other time. You have a pretty special mom, that she would celebrate with you. Keep those special moments coming!
