After taking a couple pictures, it looked too appealing to pass up. So I put down the camera and lay down on the floor between them. I started petting one cat, then my third cat came over and curled up with the other, and they started grooming one another. I reached over and scratched the head of cat number three, and there we were, all four of us, snuggling up in the sunbeam with sun-warmed fur, and much soft petting and purring and cuddling and grooming going on.
I started wishing that somebody would come take a picture of us, but there was nobody left! The whole household was relaxing together in the sunbeam! Which is just how it should be, really.
