In times of uncertainty–and really, when is it not a time of uncertainty–it’s helpful to focus on whatever reliable things you can find.
One can, for example, count on Rufus to find a cozy place to curl up.
(It should be noted, by the way, that despite the label on the cave, he routinely snoozes for far longer than thirty minutes at a time. That’s also a certainty.)
And, no matter how deeply asleep he may seem, Rufus can be counted upon to notice when a camera is deployed in his vicinity.
Notice and demand the the photographer get his best side. And his worst side. And every other side he’s got.
Strange to think that being able to count on someone’s personal vanity should be a good thing.
