Bodhi’s Going to Kill Me

Bodhi does this adorable thing where he leaps into my arms from the floor. It’s very sweet. But lately he’s started leaping onto me from all directions and at all times, when I’m not looking.

Since I’m not watching and therefore not prepared to catch him what happens is he leaps and then digs all his claws into wherever he lands. It’s very painful. When I feel him on my back I instantly bow down so he doesn’t have to dig in, which is what happened here. He looks content and I’m congratulating myself for avoiding getting stabbed in the back by 18 tiny knives.
