Beau Update

We're looking for new cat companions in a desultory way, since we want to keep Wendy and our rather rotund Possum on a measured amount of food for a while, without opportunities to snatch food from other cats' bowls. 

I'm happy to report that Beau, the 7-year-old lap cat available at the Animal Rescue League, was being adopted today as we arrived to see him. He had never been around other cats, so he probably wouldn't have been a good prospect for us anyway. A lap cat is a wondrous creature, so his new people are in for a treat. 

Possum is, to be accurate, a torso cat, since he prefers to stretch out across us when we're lying down. But he will squish himself into a lap cat in a pinch. Wendy is an armchair cat — she plunks herself down next to a lap, in the leather chair, for petting. She might even voluntarily touch us if we're stroking her belly, which she loves (see below). Touching us is terrifying at all other times. Armchair cats have their own benefits, especially if you're trying to work on a laptop or read. It's hard to do either with 17 pounds of purring Possum between you and the page.

Happy armchair cat
