Mei Mei the Wet Rat

Mei Mei, our goofy little orange tabby, is not a big fan of getting baths. This is pretty standard for a cat, but—since Melissa is allergic to cats—regular cleaning is part of Mei Mei’s life. My favorite part of this process is how, afterwards, she looks like a giant, spiky, wet rat. Today, she jumped up on some furniture in my office, perched herself right over the lamp, and commenced her drying-out (which involves standing in curious yoga poses and licking herself).
