Snuggling with the Standoffish Cat

This one, my Patches, doesn’t think I know she’s nestled next to my leg. If she knew I was aware of her presence, she’d meow as if she’d been mortally wounded while simultaneously leaping from the bed onto the floor and racing from the room.

Which is exactly what happened immediately after I snapped this picture. At least I have visual proof now that Patches sometimes needs to be snuggled, in spite of what she tells her friends.

  1. Cats. They epitomize the idea that their humans must love them as they are, and yet they will still reject you in the blink of an eye. I believe that if humans ever lose the ability to be dominant in this world, cats will be the species to take over 😉

      1. It’s ‘officially’ Star because she had a white face with a dark spot that looked like a Mae West dot. She was also a Christmas kitten. Over the years she’s taken on many nicknames: Starzer, Starzerbabe and Starbaby.
