After doing a lot of hard work trying to get our garden into shape (and I mean hard work for real – we have been carrying, with the help of our dear friends, almost 20 tonnes of rock, brick and soil over the past 3 days) it is lovely just sitting down for a while and taking your favorite position. Mine is lounging on the couch with absolutely no posture at all, so I’m lucky not many are here to witness it.
Nala also has many favorite positions she likes to relax in. I’ve told you about the belly up position, also featured in a few pictures in the past months, where Nala loves to have her beauty sleep. In addition there is the praying mantis, when she is going cuckoo with delight and extra energy. But what I haven’t featured yet is The Thumper.
When ever Nala wants attention or a bit of scratching, she looks at me or my husband and subtly moves one back leg in the air while sitting down – looking exactly like Thumper from Bambi. Not that I’ve seen Bambi for decades, but Nala managed to dig deep in my memory with this position.
Unfortunately for Nala, she is not in luck with attention this weekend, as it’s once again back to garden work for us, Thumper or no Thumper.
