After I stopped jumping up and down, I set the book down to get some water. Which is when the BlackandWhite cat made her move.
As you can see here, she’s stolen the book from me. She was more protective of her new book but never kept the pose when the camera came out.
I was prepared to fight her for my book, because I’ve been looking forward to this one for the last several months, but I remembered one important fact – She’s a cat.
So I waited her out. When she wandered away to get food (or take a bath, or plan the destruction of the FDO, or collude with aliens), I moved my book. And I’m thoroughly enjoying it!
Now I know not to leave The Starter anywhere near her when that shows up at the end of summer. There’s no way I’m sharing that one with her.
