It was Sunday morning at Rusca House Bed and Breakfast in Natchitoches, Louisiana. I awoke early so I could knit and drink hot tea and enjoy the beautiful back yard garden. As I sat knitting and sipping tea, this cat walked past me, then made a u-turn, hopped up on the chair catty-corner to me and sussed out what was in my cup. I was quite charmed by the situation. It seemed--somehow--to be right out of Alice in Wonderland.
