I thought this was a great shot and wanted to share:
This was taken after he worked pretty hard to sit on me. He was fast asleep in his bed, woke, walked over to the footrest. Rocked back and forth (he’s getting old). Put his paw on the footrest, rocked some more, jumped up (I told him, “You can do it, bud!”, crossed the footrest and came to rest half on me.
When he’s happy, Dakota’s eyes sort of rattle back and forth. Yes, he purrs, but the eyes are very expressive.
Once he was there, I could not move…
