Well, it’s Monday again and I almost forgot to write a post. It’s been one of those days. Plus there’s not much to write about.

Lion’s still not horny. And now he’s getting upset that he’s not horny. He’s still in pain from his shoulder and I’m pretty sure that has a lot to do with his unhorniness. Taking the pain pills, which he does only when absolutely necessary, makes him less horny.

Of course, this could just be another one of his lulls, but it happened exactly when he started physical therapy. He came home in a lot of pain that first night and wondered if he should continue. I think it’s probably gotten a little easier to take since then.

Last night we just snuggled. That’s fine with me. I like snuggling. All of the closeness and less of the frenzy of sex. I unlocked Lion early in the evening so he could clean the cage and have a shower. Just before bed I locked him up. He grumbled a bit about being locked up again. He said he’s tired of it. I told him it was too bad. He grumbled some more about not wanting to be in the cage.

I know he’s in his doldrums at the moment. I won’t take his grumbling very seriously. If he really wanted out of the cage for good, we’d be having a far different conversation. The only thing grumbling will get him is swats. I know he doesn’t want swats. I also know that fairly soon he’ll be horny again and he’ll forget that he ever wanted the cage off. I may forget a lot of things, but I remember that Lion has ups and downs. We get through them together.
