A Welcome Metamorphosis

They stretched and turned over in bed as sunlight streamed through the window. It was surprisingly luxuriant.

They opened their eyes and saw not hands but furry paws at the end of tabby-striped arms.

Startled, they rolled to their paws and took a quick inventory — their human body was gone, replaced by this unfamiliar feline form.

This should probably be cause for panic but … they were *extremely* comfortable. They circled twice, curled up, and went back to sleep.

Better than waking up a bug. Better than waking up a human!
