Yesterday company came over to visit. I have never had company here before. Two very nice people were here. I was finishing my nap when they arrived, but by the time they were having dinner I made an appearance. It was fun roaming around the kitchen seeing the table full of people around it, instead of just my mom and dad. It was fun making the guest man open the door to the garage over and over again so I could go in and out, in and out. My dad is not so indulgent, and my mom's seat isn't even near the door to the garage.
After dinner everyone sat in the living room, but my mom didn't sit in her usual place on the couch, and my dad sat on my chair, right on top of my new soft-as-a-cloud throw. The guest man and the guest woman sat where my mom and dad usually sit on the couch.
I was rather perplexed. Where was I going to sit?
I knew the guest man and guest woman had their own cats because I could smell the cat-smells on them. So I decided maybe it would be okay to sit on their laps. They were very nice to me as I sat on them, with them and between them.
After they left I got into a frenzy. I hunted my purple string and attacked my rattling mouse, killing it five times in between mad dashes through the living room.
Then I climbed up on my mom's desk to investigate stuff. Then I explored a shelf of her bookcase and stuck my nose into a basket of yarn to pick out the best skein for future hunting expeditions.
Then I went and sat behind the giant snake plant next to my chair with the new soft-as-a-cloud throw to think about stuff for a while. I thought about how the day had been.
I decided that all in all, it was a good day.
