I was sitting in Gregg's chair with a purring, kneading Harvey on my lap. Ray was stretched out in a sunbeam on the couch across from us, whining.
Ray knows Harvey by his purr and when Harvey purrs, Ray whines, groans, and makes noises like a humpback whale. I'm not sure why. He just does.
All of a sudden, Ray jumped off of the couch and came toward us. Harvey stopped purring but didn't dash for cover or jump up onto the back of the chair behind me, he just remained quietly on my lap, watching the dog warily.
Ray nosed around, found the cat, gave his ear a quick two licks then turned around and went back to his sunbeam.
Harvey resumed purring. I resumed petting. There was a big question mark floating in the air above us.
