My cat has some decidedly doglike features. That is to say, he can fetch. I throw one of his spongy balls and he chases it and brings it back…. sometimes. He is a cat after all. Some days this lasts a while, some days this lasts only for a throw or two.
Sometimes, when I am not suspecting it, he will bring the ball to me. I take this as a signal that he wants to play fetch. These days, he usually does this while I am watching TV. Though I might not be in the mood, I figure it’s better to play with the cat than be a complete couch potato.
This morning (actually the middle of the night) I got up after a pretty vivid dream. I went to the kitchen for some water and I passed my backpack (so carefully left in the hallway…ahem) and I found that the cat had left his spongy ball on my backpack. I guess he wants to play fetch sometime and he is leaving it up to me. This certainly qualifies as a perfect moment.
