Fish, however, decided that I had arrived to provide him with companionship. When I wouldn't let him settle on the mouse pad with a paw over my wrist, he moved to lie in front of the keyboard with his head over my right arm, tail over the left, and feet pushing gently against my chest. Purring.
He was very lovable, but it didn't really make for productive working conditions. Or for much cooler ones than the office with a malfunctioning A/C. He's a solid 16 pound, furry, radiant heater.
