Playtime

When I play with my cat, who knows if I am not a pastime to her more than she is to me?
Michel de Montaigne, French author in Essays (1580)

Although the Renaissance author may not have known his place, I certainly do: I exist to entertain Cat. Dad related advice read in a magazine in the doctor's office today that cats should be played with for 30 minutes per day. 30 minutes?! Cat demands much more attention than that. Sit in the chair to cruise the Net and I soon feel a pair of green eyes on me. Of course, playtime is at her pleasure and usually it begins a little before 7 A.M.
