Bear with me

I have always loved being bundled up in a blanket. I am not a touchy feely kind of person but ever since I got my dog I am finding myself wanting to snuggle more. I've always loved fuzzy socks, it was like wearing a hug on your feet... but now I just can't get enough of pup cuddles.

I'm becoming a crazy hug lady. That snuggles in blankets during the summer and wears fuzzy socks 24/7

Who's with me?

I am on my way to becoming the crazy cat lady. I have six cats.

They follow me from room to room. They sleep on my bed, share my pillow. I finally broke down and bought an extra pillow so Pounce has his own pillow instead of always using mine.

There are usually 2 or 3 cats on my lap while I watch tv. Caspian is on my lap right now trying to kiss my fingers as I type.

I was a dog person until I got my first cat.

My cats are not typical cats. They are very dog like in their devotion, but with the added bonus of not getting dirty or smelly. I wish my horses would stay so clean! A white cat will stay clean no matter how muddy it is outside!

As for my dogs, they are farm dogs. No matter how much you wash them, it only takes 5 minutes for them to find something to roll in. Plus my new dog doesn't like being petted or cuddled. Who ever heard of a dog that doesn't like to be cuddled?

Hugs are good. You think snuggling with your pup is good? How much more enjoyable is snuggling with someone special. Grand daughter climbed up on the couch a while back and fell asleep in my arms.

That's why I love my job so much!!

Nothing better than being dog-piled by 6+ one, two, and three year olds when you walk in the door to work!

A heavy blanket, fuzzy socks, a few cats, a candle, a cup of tea, a thunderstorm, and a book. That is pure bliss. :3

I can do hugs and handshakes with people, but get any touchier than that, you're fixing to get slapped. I'm always happy to snuggle with kitties and horses, though.

Ah, Jessabel, let me marry you - you just described a perfect day!

I'm not touchy-feely with people, in fact, I even avoid physical contact, but cats, horses and dogs...and blankets! - are a different deal. Never too much cuddles and hugs from them.

I really like my snuggies with my horses, one of which is very affectionate. But our new puppy is like a fire brick and he likes to sleep right up against me - which I might appreciate this winter. I love to snuggle with him during the day, though.

I love a wide variety of textures in textiles, I don't necessarily feel the urge to wrap myself up in them or get fuzzy socks, but I do love a soft good smelling blanky.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I can just feel that feeling of a small, beloved child leaning against me, and smell their sweet hair. ahhhh!

Fuzzy blanket, YES! Fuzzy socks, NO!

I'm a bare feet kinda gal. LOL I do wear socks with shoes or boots but the socks come off with the shoes/boots which come off within the first few minutes of entering the house. As for the blanket, my mom made me a fleece throw one year for Christmas and I've been addicted to it ever since. I requested a lifetime supply of them and keep one on my recliner and one on my bed. I also have several never used ones tucked away in my cedar hope chest.
