My cat is a ham

I had a meeting last night with one of my fabulous students. Tracey came over to show me how to set up images for a flexagon in photoshop. I learned a lot, and even though we have a little media hiccup, I think that my book for my book group and Pyramid Atlantic will work out in the end.
We were working in the studio and Jacques, who I have to say took to Tracey quicker than most people, was really trying to be the center of attention; jumping on chairs, in laps, on window sills, talking talking talking etc. After a while he disappeared for a while, which was not even noticed. Then we hear loud clattering on the staircase. We look at each other, puzzled, what on earth could this be??? I went to investigate and found my cat half way down the stairs with his momentarily-favorite toy in tow. The toy is an orange fish with bug-eyes and a bell, attached to an elastic with a wand. This is how he functions - if just being cute doesn't work, bring a toy so we can both play with it. I didn't get pictures of him last night, crouching on the stairs where I found him, pulling the toy behind him, with that specific cat-look of, what?!
But it wasn't hard to get him to model for me tonight, purring the entire time.

So cute and funny. It sure looks like Jacques is loving your big house. :)
