We’ve had a heat wave, after months and months of cool, wet weather. It’s so been so hot, it’s been hard to sleep at night. The other morning, as the human vaguely began to regain consciousness she realized first that she had a kitty nestled against her hip (not unusual) and second that she was holding a kitty paw in her hand and was touching soft sweaty toe pads (VERY unusual). She was so curious about this strange turn of events that she cracked open her eyes to see who was laying against her hip. It was Pepe. How in the world did he come to let her hold a paw? Usually, all paw petting is verboten in this house except for Fireball. The only thing the human can figure is that he was so hot, tired, and miserable with the heat that he just gave up fighting when the human touched his foot. How long cat and human lay like that is anyone’s guess.
