Once I learned a few things about cats they basically became infinite loops of joy for me. There are certain behaviors that are universal in cats and yet, I can’t help but enjoy it whenever cats do “cat things.” One of the ones I had never heard about before Anna told me was that “Cats love to sit on flat things on the floor.”

After I learned this I found it endlessly amusing that if you just put a sheet of paper on a large empty floor, your cat will just gravitate to it and sit on it. I have a lot of photos of our beloved Inari sitting on a discarded piece of cardboard that was on the floor. She wouldn’t sleep on it, she’d just go to it and sit. It would never fail to put a smile on my face.
