A visitor...

We had a visitor at our house today. In fact, he is sitting right next to me as I write this. When A went out for doing his laundry today, this black and white visitor entered the house as if it was his long lost home. After taking a general look around the house, he decided to settle down on the sofa. When we tried to move him away from the sofa, for fear that he would spoil it, he looked at us indignantly, as if to say "Is this more important than me and my comfort?".

With time, he went around for another look around the house. Its been just 15 minutes, but he already feels like he owns the house. He has already rejected the bowl of milk that we put out for him, thinking he was hungry. He made some mild attempts at PR by rubbing his head against my hand and my laptop. And then spent a few thoughtful moments looking at my search attempts to find what to do with stray cats. We concluded that Bay area cats have the general air of "been there done that" when it comes to the internet. He seems currently occupied with exploring how my jacket feels, because thats a bit warmer than the sofa and the laptop.

After trying unsuccessfully to involve A in a friendly discourse, he has now returned back to take his place beside me, purring slowly and closing his eyes to evoke sympathy and clearly asking for more choice delicacies than cold milk.

Let me see what I can find!
