Still chasing the cat

Fern is still infatuated with our cat, Carson, and loves to sneak up on her to grab a tail or clump of hair. We coax her to "be gentle," of course, but she lives through a very limited number of filters, and "gentle" is not yet one of them.

For her part, Carson actually seems to like the attention, most of the time. She'd be perfectly capable of finding an inaccessible perch, but so far she doesn't seem to mind when Fern accosts her. She'll walk away a few paces, maybe, if the petting gets really violent, but then she plops down and waits for more. Carson does throw us a long-suffering look at that point, but after all, she's a cat: she always looks like that.
