Henry the stray-ish cat and I had a breakthrough. I was in the back yard this afternoon, trying unsuccessfully to take a good picture of the yellow roses, when Henry came bouncing up to me, meowing. He has done this before, but I never know what he wants. Usually, if I try to pet him, he claws my hand. This time, he sniffed my hand and actually let me pet him! I may be wrong, but I suspect he might have been purring. Itís the first time he ever let me pet him when I wasnít feeding him. Iím thrilled.
