More kitten stuff...
So last night it seemed like a good idea to see how Nefertiti would respond if I left my bedroom door open.
HA! silly question.
She hopped up on the bed and played a brisk round of "Cobras under the Duvet" while I read* for a bit, but the minute I turned out the reading light, "Right! bedtime it is! Sleeping now! Preferably on your face, Rambler! Hold still, now."
She doesn't purr while she's falling asleep -- or didn't last night, anyhow...but I fell asleep to small breathings and small heartbeats...and by morning she was coiled up, as above, against the back of my neck.
When I stirred, she rose up likewise and sat on top of my head for a while and then decided, while she was there, to chase her tail...it did NOTHING for the coiffure, believe me.
*I'm reading a Christmas-present biography of Moses ben Maimon ("Maimonides") and can report I feel much less perplexed already, and I'm only up to about page 100.
