This morning in the Institute office, I noticed Socks giving Velvet a thorough grooming starting at her neck and proceeding across her back. Lick, lick, chew, lick.
I knew how this heavy grooming session would end, so I grabbed the camera.
Sure enough, Velvet soon indicated that she had had enough and gave Socks a swipe.
A boxing match ensued as Zippy watched.
A minute later all three study subjects resumed their office-break nap.
