Happy Cat

I’ve been sick for the past week, and this has meant that I have been even more sluggish and prone to lying around listlessly than usual.

Which, of course, meets with the complete approval of the feline contingent of my household. I’ve also noticed that when it starts getting chilly, my cats start getting very, very affectionate at night. Especially when I turn on the heating blanket, which in CatWorld is known as “The Greatest Invention Ever.”

One advantage: cats are soft and fluffy, and quite handy to have around when you sneeze and can’t reach the Kleenex.
