Cat Night

As I was about to fire up Sluggo after a couple of hours of reading, the cat decided to hop in my lap and go to sleep. She hasn't been feeling well again today, so I let her stay. She stayed for two hours. Well, she is probably 17 or 18 years old now, and I doubt she'll be around much longer, so I like to give her as much atention as I can. I went back to reading, accompanied by occasional purrs when she would wake briefly, and by the sound of rain.

The wind has been blowing a bit, too. It gusts here once in a while, but most of the time it is blowing somewhere else in the forest 'round about, and it keeps pretty much to the treetops. The sound accumulates and creates a constant hum which can be heard clearly only when the rain moderates for a while. The rest of the time, the night is a pattering and splashing and drumming that soon becomes hypnotic. No wonder all the cat wants to do is sleep.

A few minutes ago, she finally moved herself onto a cushion, so I could get up and pay some attention to Sluggo. But it is very late, and I don't want to risk repeating yesterday's disastrous excess of sleep, so I don't intend to pay much attention to Sluggo. A quick bit of catching up, then off to bed -- with a cat curled around my head, no doubt.
