Have you ever been a human cat tower? You know, that thing that happens when your cat decides to climb up you in a fashion usually reserved for scaling his own piece of feline furniture? It normally ends with the kitty deciding to sit in a totally uncomfortable place on your body while giving off a look of calm intent as if nothing untoward has just occurred.
