This has become her morning routine. She wakes up reluctantly, making displeased noises, when I stir in the morning. Then she lies there, snuggled in the blanket, watching me get ready (and getting great pleasure, I’m sure). Then she climbs across the dressing table and goes behind the curtain and perches there on the ledge for a while, for reasons that are totally imcomprensible to me. And she does this nearly eveyr day! She sits there for a while, like a bride awaiting her ceremony. Then, once she’s done with her stint behind the curtains, she emerges sleepily and goes back to the blanket again!
Sigh, cats. Don’t even try and understand them. Just love them and let them be 🙂

My cats give me two looks that plainly speak their minds.
“Lady, please, I don’t have to do that, I’M A CAT!”
“I think that you know what it is you can kiss!)
And, if you have not guessed, my cats know that they are superior.
Currently, I have a nine year old ebony female (formally known as a BLACK CAT) that I adopted five years ago. I adopted two feral kittens less than a year ago – and of course they are in my favorite color of cats – ebony, and ebony and ivory.
@ nell: love this one! “Lady, please, I donâ€™t have to do that, Iâ€™M A CAT!â€
