Today, I'm doing some writing and hanging out with Missy in the living room.
My boycat Yang is sitting on my lap, insinuating himself between me and the laptop. It's adorable. It's a pain in the ass. It's both!
Cats are such funny, entitled, loving agents of chaos. At first I wanted to push him off my lap, and really get to work. But he's got me realizing it's important to go slow, and pay attention to love.
It makes me think of Andrea. She was a cat person too. Her babies, Abbycat and Daddycat, look, weirdly like my Yin and Yang. She has expressed to me many times how they're lovely pains-in-the-neck, too.
I COULD be writing in my office, at my desk. without company (cat or spouse). But it's better this way.
I know Andrea would approve.
