I don't know if I've ever mentioned this or not, but now seems to be an appropriate time to tell you.
I have a battery-operated cat.
Yes, that's right; just behind the liver and on top of the pancreas, not far at all from the common bile duct, Bella has a small battery pack. Which has to be recharged from time to time.
So I have to plug her in, and she has to remain tethered there in her bed until she's fully charged.
She tends to get bored.
Can't I get up yet?
Ready to face the world.
