Her key jiggled in the lock. She turned the knob and the door opened. As she entered, she was greeted with wiggles and flurry. The overflowing joy of her return was obivious. After a busy day, she was ready for a little quiet time. She laid down her purse and set her keys on the counter. She felt the light rub of fur against her leg.

As reached she for her tea, the feeling of comfort settled in and she began to relax a little deeper into the cushions.
