He gradually wafted into consciousness. As sensation slowly returned to his body he felt something warm on his calf. Gradually, he became aware of a weight there as well. He managed to open his eyes, but was unable to sit up for several moments. Eventually, the heavy weight of sleep faded enough for him to sit up.
Pushing himself up with a groan, he felt the weight move and his leg begin to cool.
He wiped the sleep from his eyes, and started as he felt something step on his stomach. His eyes opened, suddenly clear; he saw a cat.
