I've been cat-sitting this guy,
I've taken care of him before, last year about this time, and he took a day or so to get used to my presence in his house.
It's amazing how quickly he decided I had a lap worth cultivating, again.
He even likes to watch the news with me. I think he likes it most when they announce they're going to paws for station identification.
If you're looking for more beasties with which to cuddle (and a few less snuggly), make certain you visit Modulator, for Friday Ark #121, and, come Sunday evening, be sure to seek out the Carnival of the Cats, this week to be hosted by Pet's Garden Blog.
