my brother and my cat

My 20 lb, beast of a cat – fully equiped with extra toes, ready to rip apart unsuspecting songbirds in a flash – has fallen in love with my brother.

This small mountain lion begs my brother to pet him. Jenner stands at his feet meowing for attention. And when he gets it, he starts purring, like the rumbling of the midnight train, and pushing his head against Andrew’s chest, or leg, or whatever of him that is reachable.

When Andrew takes the time to watch a movie, Jenner’s right there to sit on his lap and get his attention quota.

I have no idea what I did to get the cold shoulder, but if Jenner had a choice between me and Andrew… I’d be minus one cat.
