A number of months ago, I noticed that Jim started a new routine with Ringo. He would carry Ringo around on his shoulders and eventually put him on top of a dresser. Ringo would get pets and just purr away. Jim dubbed it "dresser pets."
I finally got some photos of the routine. He does not get to stay up there because of the fragile and special items (Tucker's ashes are in the brown box on the left.) But for a few minutes, Ringo gets some special one-on-one attention, and he loves it.
