Have you ever had an electric shock when stroking your cat?? Here's the reason why.

During fair weather, when relative humidity is low, static electricity can build up on a cat as it touches other objects. Cat hair loses electrons easily, so cats become positively charged.

When a cat licks itself, the moisture makes its fur more conductive – so the charge can more easily ‘leak’ off the fur. Many cats don’t like being stroked in cold winter weather because a fur charge can build up to cause small sparks, irritating them.

A Morning Kiss

A morning kiss, a discreet touch of his nose landing somewhere on the middle of my face.
Because his long white whiskers tickled, I began every day laughing.
