Trapped, as Usual, by a Cat

Like many pet owners, I do not have to heart to get up when I have a sleeping animal on me. Ah, the tyranny of the sleeping cat. At the moment, Bleecker is on me and I’m the most reluctant to move when it’s Bleecker. The other two tend to hog my lap and bully him when he tries to claim time. So when he gets it I want to give him as much time as I can.

Here is one of the first pictures I took of him.

I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.

  1. Aww sweet …. I envy their ability to simply mold themselves onto any surface and quietly nod off. I’m sure your lap time was appreciated. I’d like to sleep this entire year off and wake up in another century. 🙂

  2. I wish I could get a peek at the next century. Did it get any better? Or are people just as angry and suffering due to climate change? Maybe climate change will force the world to work together?
