09:32 am - Vertical and horizontal cats
We have one horizontal cat, and one vertical cat. At least, strokewise.

Hiro (born exactly two years ago, btw), will lean into any approaching hand with such abandon that he always ends up flopping down on his side to receive the full effect of the stroking hand. So he is our horizontal cat. Sometimes he waits on the stairs to get his caresses, and you have to be careful that he doesn't fall down the stairs (then he's a vertical cat too). 

Micah always meets the hand half way by lifting up his body and front paws, especially the right one. In this he reminds me of Japanese Maneki Neko (the beckoning cat or lucky cat). At the same time he looks with piercing eyes at the stroker-to-be, and utters a kind of squeak that could be cat-talk for: "What are you waiting for? Get on with it!". He is our vertical cat.


(Add a pinch of pepper)
