I’ve had lots of cats who liked me, and some who liked me a LOT. But Duncan’s the first one to follow me around like a dog. And he’s the first one to go to bed with me every single night, and the first one to share my pillow. We fall asleep face to face. Lately he has taken to falling asleep with one paw nestled in my hand and the other paw resting gently on my cheek. That’s how we fall sleep.
He’s also the first cat to join me at bathtime. None of my other cats had any interest in going anywhere near the bathtub. But look at Duncan! He hasn’t missed a single bath or shower since he moved in here. There’s no such thing as too much togetherness for this big ol’ puddin’ head.
One of these days he’s going to lose his footing and suddenly there will be a gigantic, wet, panicky, 20-clawed cat thrashing around in the tub with me. It’s going to be soooo exciting.
