I was at a friend’s apt yesterday. She has a husband, <2 year old daughter, two cats. We ordered in food, I brought some cookies from a Brookyn bakery.
One of her cats, I think Pete, was so friendly. I think he's 9 years old, seemed mellow, loved to be pet. I'm talking he looked at me after I pet him as if saying "you mean you're not going to do that until I fall asleep?"
Actually, if I actually stopped for a minute, he would rub the length of his cat body on my hand "dammit, if you're going to be a lazy ass, I'll do it myself."
But once he started purring, he started drooling.
"Yeah, Rex. He does that. He'll slobber all over you."
This sounds familiar, although I read the reasons for this don’t sound too pleasant. The petting gets so good that normal body functions are affected.
Damn, I give great pet.
Now, I love animals so i soldiered on petting him as we ate cookies and drank coffee but after a while, it was all over my pants and my hands. So… every five seconds of so, I wiped his face with a napkin. He wasn’t quite fond of that but it worked well for me.
UNTIL I finished my coffee and then accidentally WIPED MY FACE WITH THE CAT SLOBBER!
Lucy Van Pelt, I feel you.
