Renn is a lap-cat under certain conditions. Sometimes, when we are watching a movie on Saturday nights, he will crawl onto my lap while giving his rough purr. The only other instance, is when I am sitting on the right side of the couch, never the left. He will jump up, usually over the arm of the couch, and step down onto my lap. From there, his posture may become any shape at all. And in the light thrown by an electric lamp in an early autumn evening, the image can be a bit unusual. But not for Renn.
