Huck the cat, who has for some time been knocking small items off my dressing-table to get me out of bed in the morning, has hit on a new and more effective strategy: the past two mornings, he has attempted to steal my wristwatch.
He very carefully and deliberately selects it from the various items, picking it up with great delicacy, leaping down and running away. The first time, he got as far as his scratching post in the living room.
This one bears watching. He's a pretty clever -- and larcenous -- fellow.
