Effie investigated a small hole, one not deep enough for any sort of creature to use as a home or hideaway. She excavated it for several minutes before deciding sometimes a hole is just a hole. Cats have superhero sensory abilities, but they are blessed to have no sense of futility at all. They never give up; they simply lose interest.
As soon as I took out her scale and set it on the floor, Effie climbed right in and lay down, her paws tucked primly under her body like the most proper kitty. I went for my camera and returned to find her quite relaxed.
