On the left, here’s a good picture of Domino’s stubby front legs. Or is it something else at work? In any case, when she walks she definitely slopes up toward the rear, which you don’t normally see in a cat. On the right, here’s another shot from the series of pictures of Inkblot and the laser pointer that I took a couple of weeks ago. Why? Because you can never get enough of cats and laser pointers. Note also that he’s sitting on a cheap area rug that we originally bought to protect a high-traffic area of the carpet. It’s almost literally in shreds now because Inkblot has adopted it as his personal scratching post. But I’m basically OK with this. It only cost twenty bucks, and if it lures him away from the furniture and the carpet, that’s fine. I’ll just buy a new one every six months or something
