A nip on the nose means “I love you.” And codeine.

My GP prescribed a bag of goodies for me: an inhaler, antibiotics, and codeine cough syrup. Woo. And yet I still feel like crap. Maybe if I mix alcohol with the codeine, exactly the way the bottle says I shouldn’t, that’d help? Err, better not.

And I’ve got an appointment with a Rheumatologist next week. Doctor appointy goodness.

Hobkin is of the opinion that a nip on the nose means “I love you.” Last night, while I was dozing on the couch, he crawled up on my pillow, nipped my nose (thereby waking me up) and then proceeded to snuggle with me for the next several hours. Cute? Yes. An appropriate display of affection? Sigh. Apparently so.

  1. Awww

    That reminds me of my old bunny Hazel.

    Her way of showing affection would be to (very determined like I might add) hop across the room with evil in her eye, *THWUMP* up on my lap (she was a HUGE rabbit) and bite me on the nose.

    But I wasn’t lucky enough to have her snuggle afterwards…she just left me holding my nose grumbling…heh.

      Heeheehee. Are you sure it was showing affection and not playing chase? That seems an awful lot like “Tag! You’re it!”

      Do you have any pictures of Hazel?

      • Re: Awww

        No I don’t have any pics 🙁

        She didn’t live very long…we were babysitting my mom’s (teeny weeny) kitten while she was on vacation, and Hazel had always just laid sprawled out on the floor.

        The only thing I can think, is that the kitten pounced on Hazel in her sleep. We woke to bunny screams (ugh), ran downstairs and saw Hazel dead on the floor with the kitten wondering what had happened. No wounds, nothing. 🙁 Bunnies CAN die from fright obviously 🙁

    Doom’s way of showing “I love you” is licking my face. For something like 15 minutes at a time.

    Display of Affection

    My 12 year old cat has NEVER been broken of that particular display of effection. Even after the first time as a kitten she tried to pierce my nose with those sharp little kitten teeth in the middle of the night and got bounced across the room.

    I think you’re stuck with it.

  6. How cute. Hobkin is such a darling. Cookie nudge me sometime to say, “Hi”. Then when I’m petting her, she’d lick my fingers on and on…a sign of affection…a kiss… *big smile*

      Hobkin doesn’t lick much. He’ll lick the spoon clean that we used to scoop up some cottage cheese for his lunch, but that’s about it. He doesn’t drink water, so he doesn’t lap either. I guess teeth are more his thing. Hah.

        Oh, Hobs licks some people hello… then proceeds to scratch their goatees off… and the backs of their heads… and nip their ears hello… and…. 😉

          It’s because you’re special. Although he tries to dig into your skull because you let him. He’s stopped doing it with us. Or maybe he thinks your brain will be sweeter . . . mwahaha haaa.
