Holly and Lucky celebrated Valentine’s Day by beginning to play. It’s the first such interaction between them that I know of this winter. It’s too much of a coincidence that it would occur on Valentine’s Day,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAtfM5fFhRI of how it happened. Holly’s activity woke Lucky who shortly came over to Holly’s bed and engaged in some gentle play like we used to see. At the 4:08 mark, though, Holly became defensive and the play ended. Lucky retreated to his bed and didn’t try to play anymore.so either it means they know more than we think about special dates, or it just shows how great some coincidences can be.
