Last night our cat, Derwood, refused to let me sleep. Well, I could sleep, as long as he could sleep directly on top of me. This is less than comfortable seeing as he purrs as loud as a motorboat, and he’s almost as heavy. After some coaxing, I finally got him off and he settled at the foot of the bed. As annoying as Der can be sometimes, I seriously wouldn’t trade him for any other cat in the world. He never fails to put a smile on my face, even when I’m in the deepest “funk.” His medical issues may make him a handful, but he’s worth all the fuss.
Here’s some glamour shots I took of him during a particularly bad day I was having this week. Watching him pose for the camera instantly cheered me up. As you can see, the camera loves him (and he loves it right back).
