pitter pat

While doing my homework tonight I felt a soft tapping on my ankle. Two little paws taking turns patting my foot.

I was met by the inquisitive gaze of a tiny cat named Tangerine.

I put my hand down to scratch at her head, but she leaned into my hand, so I, not being such a dumb human attempted to pick her up, and learned that was what she was waiting for.

For the next 15 minutes she sat on my chest purring. Giving me a diversion from the computer screen.

Funny how a selfish act of wanting to be petted led to a much needed break for the human.

Perhaps it wasn't so selfish.
