Lately, Ollie has taken to trying to cuddle with Smokey. I can understand why. Smokey is affectionate, soft and silky, and amazingly tolerant for a cat. He puts up with a lot, I think, just for the attention. Ollie, however, can be very persistent and will continue to hug and literally lay on top of Smokey long after the poor cat has had enough. I'm grateful that Smokey is not an aggressive cat in the least. He never intentionally hurts anything. (Which means, woe to the rodent that he catches just for fun. He will play with it endlessly, but will never kill it.) Ollie is very lucky to have such a good-natured cat next door at his Nana Honey's house. We're still working on "g-e-n-t-l-e!" Sometimes Ollie remembers, and sometimes he doesn't. Have patience, Smokey! He'll be a good playmate someday.
