It's been a bit gloomy around here recently, so how about we change the subject, eh?
Look! It's a cat in a bag!
Can't you just feel your blood pressure coming down already?
She quite often wakes me up first thing in the morning by jumping on the bed with a little chirrup, poking her nose in my face and wheezing her breathy little purr over me. It's pretty much the best possible way to start your day. No problem feels too big when your cat wants a cuddle.
I'd heartily recommend it.
