I have a reasonable chance at three or four if I commit the time. Only the last is entirely beyond me. I was thinking aloud about this post before going to the computer. Xenia, my cat, overheard and seemed to snort and snicker. I asked her just what in hell she thought was funny? Xenia turned her back on me, sauntered over to her favorite catnip-filled box, and proceeded to have a glorious nip toot. She’s lying there now, purring and occasionally snickering.
She maintains that she does exactly what I tell her to when she wants to.
