Dec 13 – The dreaded “you will play now” position.  It is accompanied by a very demanding miaow.  This is a lesson for cat owners (or those owned by cats) – if you have an outdoor cat, live where it can always go outdoors.  He gets quite crazy during the winter.  He also gets a little chubby and unfortunately, his annual vet visit is in February.  By May, the belly will be gone, but Doctor never sees *that*.
