It is possible I might reposition my right paw to cover my ears more effectively, but other than that, this is how I plan to spend the next 8 or 9 hours. My useless Human is off to a barbeque at the neighbors', so I really can't count on much soothing comfort from her. I will just have to prepare as best I can for the Festivities of the Fourth.
In an emergency, there's the nice big dark space under the bed, but there are a lot of scary dust bunnies down there.
In other news: Apparently Aggie & Wally had another chance to "bond" yesterday. Their Dad reports that they chased each other and batted paws, but no kitten was fighting for real, and no injuries were incurred. Also, report is that Wally has learned to give as good as he gets in the hiss and growl department. Photo installment #2 soon!
