Reading Companions

What a sweet fluffy reading companion this beautiful cat makes. My cats absolutely love it when I sit down to read. Sometimes a little too much, because they will literally lay right on top of my book. Do you have a dog or cat that likes to hang out with you while you read? Drop a reply below in comments to tell me all about your furry (or feathered) friends!
