Unless he's sleeping, or wants to be ouside on the balcony, Henry (my cat) wants to be with me at all times, right there with me, right there on top of me, right there up near my face, right there ALL UP IN MY GRILL. He's really weird. He doesn't like my lap too much, he would much rather be butting the top of his head against my chin and snuffling in my face. Weirdo.

He's always around when I'm on the computer, usually on the desk between me and the monitor, no matter how many times I try to explain to him that I am TRYING TO DO SOMETHING HERE, and additionally, I am LOOKING AT THE MONITOR AND CATS ARE NOT SEE-THRU. He gets tossed to the curb, and eventually settles for the windowsill behind the desk.

But lately he's taken everything a step further, and he actually goes from my desk to my SHOULDERS. Like, he puts both front feet on my shoulder and shifts his weight so that his body is up against the side of my HEAD, and then he just STAYS there! Weirdo! I like to pick his hind legs up off the desk so that he's totally off balance and at my mercy. Sometimes I push him back so that he has to jump off my back, but the other day he kept going. He climbed up and around and went behind my head and around the other shoulder and back onto the desk. WEIRDO. And this is not a small cat. This fucker's at least sixteen pounds, he's a big solid male cat.

So the point of all this boring cat-talk (it's somewhat interesting to observe, I swear) is that last night he stepped on the keyboard and invented a new emoticon:


Swear to God, that's what he typed. It represents someone zerberting in tears. Conspiratorially.

Stop making me snort. Slick's making fun of me.

(laughter snort, not derisive snort)

One of my cats (I have two. I'm not the crazy cat lady, yet.) does that head-butt the chin thing to me, too. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT???

She also used to do the shoulder thing to me when she was a kitten. Actually, if I put my arms up under my chin she'd walk around in circles on my arms and shoulders. She's a fatty now so I'm glad she doesn't do that anymore.

All my cat does when she steps on the keyboard is cancel my downloads. Grr.
