a gift for Learned Claw


After a prolonged and hard-won battle, Erik has gently placed the toy in Learned Claw's foodbowl. How magnanimous.

Erik, he purrs

...because Lord knows we don't have enough of Erik the Red purring like a maniac.

hot off the presses

Turns out Learned Claw is not only shy of people, but also of iCameras.

fact: cats need warmth

This would explain why I have woken up for the past week with cats either sleeping on or near me. The above photo is from yesterday, when I awoke with Erik on my back.

I am never home these days, so when I am—regardless if I've just come back from a run and am stinky or if I'm using the computer, etc.—Erik needs attention, and he NEEDS IT NOW. I'm like crack, apparently. So he came over, laid on my hands (as in the above photo), and began licking me before falling asleep. He makes me so cheery, even when I have so much work I'm about to lose my mind.
