Willis [who has the official designation of Barn Cat] slipped into the house this afternoon when J. left on an errand. About an hour later I discovered that he had taken over J.'s desk.
Willis appears to feel that the "mouse" should be guarded at all times.
It's the right shape--but not very lively.
Willis lounges imperturbably, while surrounded with J.'s tools of connection to the outside world:
the tv remote; the laptop; the portable phone.
