Scoop loves to cuddle. He's a lap cat who enjoys hours and hours of petting. But Au is a hands-off kitty. He loves to play wild games, and he likes having his chin scratched, but he's not fond of being picked up and cuddled. I don't blame him; I don't like being touched much either.
So last night when I was mulling over Things To Do this week, panicking over deadlines, and graduating to worrying about the usual career/money/future things people worry about every now and again, I was really surprised to have Au walk over and sit down next to me.
He gave me a small smile, curled up with his chin on my arm, and settled down for a quiet purring snooze. Instantly the world looked a better place.
Au is just a small cat, but he certainly packs a big punch.
PS Here he is, snoozing on his rug in front of his cardboard box.
