Here the Tall Man is demonstrating how I'm his secret weapon. See his "I'm shooting a rifle" face while I'm purring and blinking all lovey eyed? There is another shot where he "took off the safety" and turned me around to face the Lap Lady....but we left that one out.
So the Lap Lady has been able to outsmart Latte (at least for the moment). The Tall Man liked to keep the newspaper next to the bed to read. Well not so much news as comics, but I digress. Anyhow, Latte knew that he could wake the LL up by pawing on the paper. Which he did for oh....about a year or so. He did this so that the LL would kick him AND me out of the room because he wanted to play at 4am. Low and behold the newspaper has disappeared and Latte makes it all night without waking her up. Hehe, I like it too because I'd much rather snuggle all night with her than play at 4am.
