The sun has just come up. My wrap covers my nightgown and I slip outside. The cats follow. The birds are awake and gossiping to each other and planning out their day. The big cat stalks them. The kitten chitters at them. But, it's still to cold to actually give chase. Instead, they sit on either side of me, soaking up the sun. First the left side, then the right. Then, the tummy gets exposed to the warmth that grows ever stronger. Cats must be solar powered.
