The large cat looped around my ankles, an infinity of insistent affection. It nearly knocked me over. I bent to stroke. It backed away, and then sat back on its haunches, rearing up like a meerkat. Stretching its paws out, it pushed on pressure points, forcing me to my hands and knees. I laughed nervously as I saw it tense then leap onto my back. The force of its landing knocked me flat on my face. I felt surprising heaviness as it settled between my shoulders.
We are both waiting. I do not know my fate, but the cat does.
