My household is has one cat.
That’s down from the four cats we used to have.
One was stolen, one was eaten by coyotes, and one died from a stroke.
I am a dog person at heart but I appreciate the independence of cats and the occasional camaraderie that they provide.
So I fell in love with this post on reddit:
Back to my cat.
His name is Callie and he’s about 16 or 17 years old now, so not long for this world although in the scheme of things no one is permanent:
Callie keeps me company while I work from home and I really enjoy leaning over and petting his soft fur every time I need a little break or a pick me up.
Callie and my kid get along famously and if she’s around, Callie will climb into her lap and just sit there waiting for affection:
My kid hates having pictures taken so this is the best picture I was able to get showing Callie and my kid snuggling.
There’s a lot that can be said for holding a purring kitty cat on your lap!
