Hi all,
  I'd like to know if any of you cat people out there has had the smae 
experience I had last night. I'm fostering two adult, male cats for a 
friend of mine. Last night, one of them, named Smokey, decided to chase 
his tail, just like a dog does. He did it while I was watching tv. He 
went around three times. That was funny. Later on, I went to bed. I was 
lying on my side in bed, trying to sleep, when Smokey jumped up on the 
bed, laid on my hand and started licking my hair, just like he would do 
to another cat! this went on for about 5 or 10 minutes, just constantly 
licking my hair. I didn't dare move until he was finihed. Eventually, he 
stopped and jumped off the bed. I have to tell you, it was a weird 
experience, but in a good way. I enjoyed it. I have never had a cat do 
that before. even the two cats my husband and I had once never did that. 
Is that a sign of ownership? Smokey is a very tactile cat, he loves to 
reach his paw out and touch me, every time he is near me. Has anyone 
else had that experience? I hope he does it again. 
  Well, that's it for now. I have to get back to more serious computer 
work now. Meow, baby!
