Today’s Monday Blog Game topic: pets and their quirks.*
favorite smallest cat, Oobie, has a number of quirks, one of which causes me almost constant amusement.
Oobie likes to sit on important things.
If she perceives that an object is important to me, she sits on it as quickly (and as often) as possible.
Leaving the desk guarantees she’ll take the computer, and also that she’ll be put out when I reclaim it upon my return.
Two weeks ago, when the copy edited manuscript of Claws of the Cat arrived for review, I had to persuade her to surrender the pages.
It wasn’t easy.
Some might call her obstinate, or ill-behaved, but I can see the behavior for what it is – a need to be involved in important activities (read: all activities that concern me).
Cats are known for sitting on things, but I’ve never had a cat that took it to such a carefully tailored extreme.
