i was concentrating pretty heavily on answering a thought provoking email when i felt soft and gentle paws reach up onto my leg. distractedly, i thought it was one of the cats and i finished typing a sentence before i looked down. there, looking up at me with the sweetest little face, waiting, was sissy. gosh she is adorable in a wierd and wrecked sort of way. so tiny, so innocent, so sweetly gentle in her quiet bid for a cuddle. i picked her up and she laid her cheek against my lips, inviting me to give her a kiss. she snuggled in for a moment or two. when she was done getting what she wanted, i set her back down and she went back to her place by the fire. she just gave and took a moment but it was enough to make us both feel good and loved.
