It looks like Hoyt is laying here sleeping, but what he’s actually doing is kneading and alternately licking and sucking that blanket. Kittens who’ve been weaned a little too soon can tend to do that from time to time, and something about that blanket really sets Hoyt off. He doesn’t do it often, and he doesn’t do it for long, just for a few minutes. It certainly does make him happy.
Bill caught him doing it a few times, and seemed to disapprove.
“I disapprove of this behavior.”
But look what I found him doing a little while later!
