Rannie the cat is weaving back and forth in front of the monitor, in a rare "pet me" mood. This morning, she was considering getting under the covers when Huck bounded onto and across my bed in a series of leaps; she suddenly remembered pressing business elsewhere.
H'mm, probably good advice, time to git.
