What do cats have to do with it?

This is Butterfly. She is looking at me resentfully. I am spending too much time getting ready for launching THE BLACK ALABASTER BOX and not enough time with her. When she thinks that I have been working too long, she comes and sits, looking at me with this look. If I ignore her, she comes up to me, wraps her legs around my leg as if she is wants to make sure I don’t escape from her commanding presence, and meows. It is a kind of chirp meow–I don’t have words for it. It’s persuasive, though.

There is another possibility for the look today. Maybe she resents Old Shep. Maybe she is saying, “Seriously, a DOG?”
