Buddha da Cat

Buddha loves my new (ish) chair. It is big enough she can squeeze in beside me and fall asleep.
When I reach down to pet her, she purrs loudly and turns (still asleep) so I can rub her belly.

Sometimes when she wants some extra loving, she'll come to the arm of the chair next to 'her space' and somersault into it, then stretch out with one paw and casually pat my leg.

Sometimes she gets up on her hind quarters and leans on the arm, as if she is trying to sit like I do.

She also has the odd habit of doing an arabesque, always with her left rear leg, when she's waiting for the food dish to be put down.

I've had her since she was about 4 weeks old, and had to hand feed her (making nuzzly lip-smacking noises) as she was too young to be away from her mom. Yep, I spoil her, but she spoils me, too. She's coming up on 15 years old, but is healthy, thank goodness.
