Do You Ever Think Someone’s Watching?

Ever had a moment when your deep sleep was interrupted with the terrifying feeling that someone’s watching? Frankie can relate.

Frankie sound asleep in Hu-Dad's office.

Frankie sound asleep in Hu-Dad’s office.

We had quite the lazy Saturday. A continuation of our rainy weather (and some very severe flooding in our region along with a number of mudslides, but none affecting us), so we had a lazy day inside while the Hu-Dad spent another work day in his study. Frankie was snoring away when he realized that the Hu-Dad might be studying him.

Someone's watching me, I know it.

Someone’s watching me, I know it.

And what was Hu-Dad staring at? Would it be the fur sprouting everywhere on Frankie’s body? Frankie has the nicest, softest fur. And he will stay still for plucking for hours on end. So what exactly was the Hu-Dad thinking?

Go ahead. Pluck.

Go ahead. Pluck.

    Isn’t it interesting, the ones that prefer plucking, and those with a “do not touch” policy!

    Hu-Dad is watching you sleep, wishing he could get beside you, and dig in your soft fur and love on you…to be sure some plucking would be done…enjoy Hu-Dad’s attention!
