There I am sound asleep at 3am when a certain grannycat walks across my personage. Her aim to hit the most tender areas is, as always, flawless. This is a pretty typical situation, I am like a kitten super highway, and feline jungle gym all in one. I couldn't help but notice one of the paws was damp. Yes, just one.
A couple of seconds go by in my sleepy brain when this thought occurs to me... what is that paw damp from? And why only one? An aggressive lick bath? Sure that's it. Probably shouldn't thing about it too much, just go back to sleep.
This may actually require me waking up, as visions dance in my head.
It's probably just a water bowl incident.... yeah that's it. She treats her bowl like a water park. It's probably all part of some scheme to get me up. She's clever that way. She's probably rubbing those paws together in the dark, and plotting.
