Somewhere around 4 am: Thumpada thumpada thumpada cat feet pounding through the house. Thumpada thumpada thumpada down the hallway, into bedroom, and Perry hits the bed and races across me, followed by Scooter, both sailing at wide open speed. Over me, off the bed, back around, down the hallway and thumpada thumpada thumpada down the stairs. Thumpada thumpada thumpada back up the stairs, down the hall, and pounding across me again. Repeated a couple more times, then a launch from my bed to the dresser and there goes the vase full of lilacs and water. All over antique dresser. Sigh.
It's a good thing I love you wretches.
