I think I'm wearing the mouse on my right ear. It's on top of the covers. I'm deducing this from the cat's still, looming silhouette in front of my face. He's waiting. He could pounce at any minute. Are all cats nocturnal? He is ever present in my sleep cycle. Sometimes, I wear a cat hat. That works pretty well, at least there's no fur in my face. Other times, he lays his body across my face, centering whatever organ he uses to purr right on my ear. Lately, he condenses his weight heavily atop my chest. Can love survive?
