The Petting StoolThis is The Petting Stool:
The Petting Stool has rules, and Gracie knows them.
1. If someone is sitting in The Petting Stool, they are immediately petted.
2. If someone is not sitting in The Petting Stool, they are subject to immediate removal.
This means that anytime Gracie is in my study, mucking around and messing things up (a hobby for all cats), she will sprint to The Petting Stool as soon as I decide to notice her and make General Noises of Dissatisfaction.
