Jesse Finally Lets Me Draw Him

My cat Jesse is completely in charge of when I can draw him.  He can tell I'm drawing him even when he's sound asleep.  If I am behind him while he's sleeping and I very stealthily begin to sketch, he waits until I'm committed to the drawing, and then he slowly rotates to a completely different position.  The other day, though, I hung in there and sketched gesture drawings until finally he must have decided it was okay for me to draw him.  When I was finished, he stretched, got up, and went outside.
