Hank is a very demanding cat. He bats at your food while you eat. He wants you to play with him 100% of the time. He wants to go outside. He sits on the counter while you get ready for work. He rips apart the shopping bags and snags my jeans. He wants to check out the food you are making for dinner. He doesn’t want to eat it though, just bat at it until it’s contaminated. He loves to dig in the litter box for 20 minutes at a time at 4 in the morning. I sometimes think he’s a lot of work. When I get up in the morning, the first thing I don’t want to do is play with him. I’m usually running late and feel that it’s one more chore. Then I remember that this is probably the highlight of his day, and that I can always spare a couple of minutes. Besides, it’s nothing compared to having a dog or a kid!
