I've moved into my new place. Living on my own, working full time - trying to live a normal human life again. Due to construction on my roof, I haven't been able to move my cat in just yet. I've been deprived of the same kitty snuggles that have gotten me through the worst of my chemo and transplant recovery, snuggles that I dearly need to recover after a long day at work.
So, when a friendly stray ran up to me for pets, I couldn't resist pressing its sticky, filthy, matted little face against mine!
The brief snuggle break got me through the week - and probably also gave me fleas.
