The big guy comes in nearly every day and bangs against the human’s legs, then scoots before she can reach down and pick him up for hugs and kisses. (Human cooties do terrible things to a cat’s luscious fur, by the way.) He’s become a master of staying just far enough back that the human can pet his head and neck and a bit of his back and chest, but not close enough that she can get both arms around him and lift him into her lap. <<A guy’s got to be careful!>>Yesterday, he came in and did some leg loving, but the human was busy and didn’t react quickly enough. That led to some rounds of standing up on his hind legs, putting his front paws on the human’s desk, and looking around while the human gave him some pets. (He was quick enough that the human still couldn’t pick him up for some hugs but for a change she did get a few usable photos.) Unlike Mac, Corky, and Pepe, he never tries to jump on the desk or stomp across the keyboard. He just wants the human to know he’s visiting. However, see all those nicks and scratches in the wood? Those are his contribution to the office. On the other hand, how can anyone resist a face like that?
