Hana Takes a Licking

Time for some Midweek Maru, in which our hapless hero just wants to show his roommate a little love and affection, and ends up delivering a knockout punch instead.

    Think I need to read more carefully. Saw the headline as “Ham Takes a Licking”. Sounds yummy to me!

    Poor Hana! Surprise naptime awakening.

    I can’t help it but somehow I love Hana more. Does that make me a bad monster?

      You’re not a bad monster, Hana is such a sweet girl. I love Maru but he’s not exactly your typical cat, Hana is much more cat like than he is.

      If it does then we both are, I adore Hana!

    Poor Hana! I shouldn’t laugh, but fortunately she’s a cat so she’s probably not even traumatized. Life with Maru must inure her to all kinds of strange stuff!

    He’s used to using a lot of pressure to get thru that thick coat of his so he must have figured Hana needed that firm a licking also. Yes, she definitely looked stunned at what happened. If you look at the little space she was in, it was bound to happen as she didn’t have much hammock to lie on. He still has a lot behind him. She’s learned to expect the unexpected when it comes to brother Maru!! But I did feel badly for her.

      Hana is a Timex in disguise? REALLY? 🤣

    Vigorous snuggling is the best snuggling.
