— feeling cat

Today a kitten entered my library and basically stopped all work in its tracks for a while. Considering the time of year (finals just finished) and how friendly the kitten is, it's a good bet it was dumped, rather than a feral. One of the librarians has fallen in love, despite being somewhat allergic, and plans on seeing how well the kitten and her dog get along.

 

As for me, I took care of the little visitor for an hour or so and spent most of that time holding the sleeping kitten in my left hand while typing with my right. Part of me wishes every workday were like this, except I'd never get anything done.
