Beetle has a wonderful way of greeting me in the morning. I will be sitting on the bed, and he will jump up and snuggle down at my side. Then he will take his lean paw and slowly inch his way up to my arm, gently wrap his paw around my arm (using no claws) and guide my arm down to my side. Using my arm as a ladder, he will sneak up slowly until his sinewy body is up my arm and his paws wrapped around my neck. Then he head bumps me twice, licks my nose, and climbs back down slowly until once again he is snuggled at my side! He is still leery of Mike, but since he was abused by men, this is understandable. When Mike is around, Beetle gets quite anxious and starts meowing and pacing and even at times growling. I am sure that once he understands Mike is a gentle man, this problem will go away. But he is the sweetest, sweetest cat!
