This photo probably looks like a cat sleeping in a bed…pretty normal stuff, right? It would be in the cat weren’t Annie, and the bed out in the open.
Annie, our former and still partly feral cat, usually sleeps in closets and places where she can not only see you coming, but can get her claws out for a friendly warning if you’re even thinking of petting her. Petting is allowed while she eats and that’s about it, and even that is limited to 2 or 3 quick pets.
So finding Annie sleeping out in the open in a cat bed next to a window was just a bit of a shock today. Apparently Annie has made a New Year’s resolution to come on our and engage the world a bit more. She even let me pet her for and give her chin rubs. I’m not sure what happened between December 31, 2014 and January 1, 2015, but I like it. Happy New Year, Annie.
And Happy New Year to the rest of you too!
