Spring is on it's way. This was the first time I had been able to convince George to let a bug walk on him without feeling the need to pick it up repeatedly, thereby squishing it to death.
He was fascinated! I should have tried to get a video of him, because he kept saying, "Come on, lady-bug! Come over here!" Simply adorable. And what a difference from merely a year ago.
Unfortunately, a mere 1/2 hour later, he was stung, or bit, by something right up by his eye. It's all puffy now, but a bit of cuddling seemed to cure the pain. Yup, spring is on it's way.
