My cat has some decidedly doglike features.  That is to say, he can fetch.  I throw one of hisImage spongy balls and he chases it and brings it back…. sometimes.  He is a cat after all.  Some days this lasts a while, some days this lasts only for a throw or two.

Sometimes, when I am not suspecting it, he will bring the ball to me.  I take this as a signal that he wants to play fetch.  These days, he usually does this while I am watching TV.  Though I might not be in the mood, I figure it’s better to play with the cat than be a complete couch potato.

This morning (actually the middle of the night) I got up after a pretty vivid dream.  I went to the kitchen for some water and I passed my backpack (so carefully left in the hallway…ahem) and I found that the cat had left his spongy ball on my backpack.  I guess he wants to play fetch sometime and he is leaving it up to me.  This certainly qualifies as a perfect moment.
