Reading progress update: I've read 48%.

— feeling cat
The Girl and the Clockwork Cat (Entangled Teen) - Nikki McCormack

From location 1621 (48%): The cat climbed onto her lap, placed a paw on either side of her neck, one warm and alive, the other chilly brass, and pressed his head against her neck.

 

However, earlier at location 152 (5%) it said: An engraved, articulated metal armor fully encased its left back leg and shoulder, complete with little brass claws at the end of each toe.

 

Either I read that description at loc 152 wrong (not to mention the book cover), or the cat totally just shoved his ass in Maeko's face and somehow managed to rub his head on her neck at the same time. THIS CAT IS AMAZING!
