Re: OT.. cat post


Oh Kitty - it was too cute! He just sat there on top of my chest (called
in the past the continental shelf unfortunately) and just hugged me. It
was darling and I just petted him and cooed. His purr is so quiet you
have to have your head right next to him to hear it. I was surprised,
Gina was startled to say the least. He's quite the little lover boy! And
no hooks, all in all quite a pleasant experience and he's an absolute
darling!

He's got more charm than the law allows, much like his daddy!!

:-)
