Penny the Cat is a feisty, often grouchy cat. Interaction is always on her terms, on her schedule. Whether walking across my keyboard, attacking my wiggling toes beneath my desk, sitting on me to awaken me/pawing my face for breakfast or inserting herself into view, Penny is not shy seeking attention.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
