Assume a spherical cat of uniform happiness


Categories: Personal

But you don’t have to assume her anymore. I have her.

I mean, strictly speaking, she’s not spherical. But she’s certainly a little on the pudgy side, and is the most unreasonably happy cat I have ever seen. Things that make her purr:

The tail thing actually had me a bit worried that maybe she had nerve damage, but I once managed to pinch her tail hardenough that she made a questioning mew of “perhaps that is not quite as pleasant as I previously thought”. So she has nerve function there, she just likes all experiences rather than preferring some to others.

When younger, my cat enjoyed being picked up entirely by her tail.

She’d spread all four legs out, as if preparing to land, and look at the floor expectantly. She was going to finish falling eventually, she was sure of it.

… Don’t do this so much nowadays because she’s genuinely obese, and I’m pretty sure something would break.
