Meow Meow is pretty shameless about begging for a lap during mealtimes (not because we feed her from the table -- she just likes laps). This is endearing, but only until her swishy tail ends up mighty close to stirring your soup.
As the shots from Dieter's phone will show you, we haven't been the best at teaching this kitty proper table manners, but she's content to get near a lap if she can't hop directly into one.
P.S.: Yes, I'm still waiting for my laptop to be functional again. The new battery and adapter are finally here, but said battery is still charging.
P.P.S.: No, my thesis is not done yet, but I saved it from potential destruction by copying all of the crucial files to a USB drive just before the laptop's power system fizzled. (I would have grabbed the as-yet-unpublished shots of Meow Meow too if the old battery had been able to hold more than three minutes of juice.)
P.P.P.S.: Hello, crunch time!
