This morning I sat on the couch, checking my e-mail. Every now and then I would reach over and stroke the warm, furry little being purring next to me.
Later, as I was eating lunch, I heard strange scratching, rattling, and thumping sounds coming from the kitchen. After a few minutes I exclaimed, “CAT! What are you doing?!” The noises stopped, and she wandered over to me, looking innocent.
It’s so nice to have a cat again.
