Harriet is a wee bit odd

We have made the odd discovery that if you pet Harriet in 2/4 time, she’s happy. I mean, you can really pound on her and she just presses into your hand.  5/8 time is right out and results in being bitten no matter how gentle you are.

She gets this pained look anytime Rob has Coltrain on the stereo. Her ears flatten. Occasionally she will cry plaintively.

This is not a jazz cat.

    • I just missed the connection and have been rebooked for a 5:45 flight. #marygoround #
    • I might've made the flight if they hadn't had to unlock the door at the top of the jetway. I don't know why it was locked. #marygoround #
    • And… my new 5:45 flight is delayed to 7:20pm. At this rate, I clearly need to find a bar to hang out in. #marygoround #
