The Sweetest Thing
When nighttime arrives, Duckie and Miss Whitey always retire to their respective sleeping spots- Duckie to his swing, Miss Whitey to the highest perch in their cage, which happens to be adjacent to the swing. Every night, without fail, they assume these same positions.
However, the past two nights Miss Whitey hopped on the swing before Duckie, which forced a visibly upset Duckie to resign himself to the top perch (the second best spot).
Tonight Duckie once again regained his much coveted swing, beating Miss Whitey to the punch. Miss Whitey then settled on the top perch, and the two drifted off to the soft lullaby music I had playing for them.
What happened next filled my heart with warmth.....
About an hour into their sleep time, Miss Whitey jumped onto the swing with Duckie. Moreover, the two have been sleeping side-by-side for over two hours now. I think they are going to stay this way all night!
Seeing them sleeping together so close and so sweetly brings a smile to my face. Watching their bond grow along with them each day is just a pleasure.
If I could do it without disturbing them, I would absolutely love to take a picture..........but I think I will let them keep this moment for themselves.
The sweetest thing.
