Up Close & (Very) Personal
by Cat Crazy
Pepe doesn’t really have good boundaries, at least not when it comes to the human. He climbs on top of her and stomps along like she’s just another warm and lumpy piece of furniture. Then he lays down and gets very, very close to her face. Fortunately, his whiskers are straight or he’d really be tickling her. Not only does he sit there staring and breathing on her face, but he occasionally picks up a paw and pokes the human’s mouth. Not sure exactly what he’s trying to do or to communicate but frankly what is cute at 9 pm is darned annoying at 3 am.
When the human picks him up and slides him back a foot or so to give her a bit more space, he obstinately crawls right back up to the same spot he previously was at and resumes his watch. What’s a human to do?
