The cat

Ginger the cat. Sleeping.

Ginger the cat. Sleeping.

Ginger the tomcat is blessed with the ability to fall instantly asleep.

As those of you who know me know, I’m no fan of cats, but this one, which belongs to friends, is rather un-catlike and seems fond of me, which fondness manifests mostly as sleeping wherever I happen to be.

So I try to keep a cushion nearby, since that’s what the cat seems to want, and it’s nice to have a pet on hand that isn’t needy or noisy and could live on field mice and ditchwater if necessary.
