For reasons I am not aware of, there is a flat piece of cardboard in the middle of the living room floor. I assume GD had something to do with it, because I know him. This piece of cardboard has not been altered in anyway to make it more attractive to the cats, such as being rubbed with catnip, but they find it irresistible.

“Please let me touch the cardboard, Simon!”
“Let me think about it … No.”

I have no idea why they like it so much, other than to say “It’s there, so why not?”

If you are wondering where Fearless is, she had been cuddled up between the two but she hopped into a laundry basket beside me right before I took the above picture.

“They voted me off the island, Mama.”
