Have you ever noticed how cats like to sit on a “spot?” These random spots are kitty magnets. The spot may be a newspaper sitting on the floor. A dish towel that’s fallen off the counter. A t-shirt left on the bed. A box lid sitting on the floor. A place mat on the table. A lone sock in the laundry room.
Here, Cinder’s spot is a square of felt I left out. Why do you suppose kitties do that?
