1. Kaufman likes it when I get up with Lily in the night: bonus cuddle time. He meows a tale – possibly explaining the fighting cat noises I’d heard at a distance outside an hour earlier – then follows Lily into the garden. Later, when we’ve gone back to bed, I feel his paws – soft, no claws – grab at my feet hanging over the edge.
