My son loves our family cat just a little bit too much.
Every once in a while my son will just hug our cat to smithereens and when our independent feline meows in protest my son often just holds the cat all the tighter.
After a short protest, the cat will give up squirming and just wait passively in my boy’s arms until I intervene or my boy gets his hug quota and sets the cat free.
Our cat is truly the most laid-back, patient and well, BEST family pet anyone could ever ask for.
But today, while my son was on the computer typing up his homework, the cat jumped up on the desk and sent a baseball, that was also on the desk, rolling towards the floor. The baseball fell off the desk and landed smack on the PC's power bar's off switch.
Yep, the son lost his homework and had to start typing it all over again.
Hee, hee, hee.
And I swear, when I look at our cat right now? He’s smiling.
