After some fruitless pleading to post last night, today I cuddled up with her for a nice afternoon nap (a recent behavior that is most excellent for bending the Human to my will).
You will perhaps be disappointed in me to learn that I have given in to this shameless Human-pleasing, kiss-up behavior, but honestly, the Humans do produce a very satisfying amount of body heat.
Why let it go to waste?
P.S. I am being allowed fine dining on the dining room table because of a persistent ant invasion. If she puts my food on the floor, it seems to attract about 9 squillion of the little beasts. Apparently the table is to them what Everest is to the Humans. Also, as much as I would like to think of the cheap plastic tray from Tar-jay as an enhancement of my dining experience, in reality it is there because the Human finds it easier to cope with my rather, shall we say, flingtastic? eating habits. But yes, I do have the luxury of eating at my leisure as there is no competition for my noms (well, except the ants).
