Ignatz has um, I call them “adventure-pants,” you know, with the lots of pockets and they zip off at the knee to turn into shorts and all that. I don’t know what other people call them. Anyway, they’re black, and the numerous zippers have little beige loops on them. They dangle and swing when he moves, and Lilu is utterly fascinated with them. During her freaky moods, she will hang by her claws on his leg and try to eat the zipper pulls, and he moves around the kitchen, getting juice or making a sandwich and completely ignoring the furious battle happening right there on his leg. But occasionally claws meet skin, so today he told her, “I’m not going to let you climb my leg and eat my dangly thing every day. Just this once.”
