"Woman and Cats" by Will Barnet
Two cats sleep with a reclining woman, the first curled up at her side, the second nested on top of the center of her curvaceous body. They are attracted to large, warm bodies and yellow. These are what brought them to her on a quiet, grey day. Longing for the comfort of silky fur against her skin, she uses both hands to bring the more intimately positioned cat to her face. Normally the cat would feel annoyed, but the woman's movement is so gentle and unexpected that the cat submits without hesitation, and soon shifts and settles around her neck like a truss, sending out soft vibrations.
