This posting is celebration of SL cats. Have already posted multiple times about Mitsy and more recently Goggles (seen in main pic). Also often encounter cats round and about and in right hand pic am shown conversing (one-sidedly) with cat in pleasant area of a shopping sim, with a cat that (like Goggles) was born at Zooby's.
Have also bought magic pillow which appears just a pillow but, when you SIT on it, cat appears on lap and one's hand starts making vague stroking motion, sometimes disappearing into cat and also cat has strange globular appearance, but still. Pillow can be copied infinite no. of times and placed anywhere so could have (e.g.) discussion session where everyone found themselves stroking identical cats.
Hmmm, perhaps will try that.
