A Question of Ownership
I am totally owned by a cat named Alice. This morning she was frantically trying to get my attention running from living room to bedroom, stopping to stare at me mewing pleadingly. I followed where she led; finding nothing amiss, I returned to my previous activity. She blocked my way as I retreated; I picked her up, scratched her head, and rubbed her belly which she liked, alas, to no avail.
We returned to the living room where Alice sat on the sofa to just stare at me instead of curling up to nap. Feeling very uncomfortable under her laser-like focus, a thought hit me - I had yet to make my bed! Alice always occupies the bed with the pillows and a knitted baby blanket to laze the day away. Dopey me, I had left Alice with no place to sleep... bad, bad man!
