I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I've been enjoying some of the recent pet photos, so I figured I'd post one of my cat. My avatar is her as a kitten. This is her today. It's a common pose of hers. If she's relaxed enough (meaning she doesn't spring up the instant I move towards her), I can pet her chest and head for a few seconds before she decides she's had enough. If her head and front legs were pointed in one direction and her hind legs in the opposite direction, I'd know it's safe to pet her belly for a while. :-)
