Snuggling with Muffin
I was just snuggling with Muffin, and my time spent with Minerva made a light bulb go off somewhere in the back of my brain.
You know, it is pretty spectacular that we get to love and snuggle with these creatures that have great big sharp pointy teeth and a multitude of claws any one of which can (and oh all right I'll admit occasionally do*) draw blood at their whim, but they choose not to.
I just fell in love with cats all over again.
*Fleurp found a pile of cat fur and was playing and licking it. I didn't want her eating it so I went to take it away from her, and she smacked me and very much had the attitude of a sullen teenager who you just told they couldn't do something. Except for the fact that I bled after being smacked, it was really quite funny - and yes she got her claws clipped that night.
