Time Share, a Study in Cats


I’ve noticed our short-haired cat Jezebel goes through phases every few years during which she is either more or less sociable. Here you can see which way the pendulum has swung.

Time for an Afternoon Nap
Tilly, however, does eventually get tired of sharing her favorite cat bed (yes, they have several, way more options than we humans have). That usually occurs when Jezebel goes into an excessive grooming mode. I believe that’s what happened here after I left the room.

Hey, Where'd You Go?
But never fear, Tilly found an acceptable alternative that still kept her within a few feet of my SO. This box has been saved for another purpose.

Thank You, Amazon Prime
Oh, well. We’ll get there eventually.

Who Needs Mattress Padding When You're Made of Wool?
Then again, this little kitten has an even better idea. And I am jealous, quite frankly.

  1. Our cat Toffee is very anti-social and the only people she cuddles up to are my husband and me. She just about tolerates everyone else - if she has to!

    1. Sounds familiar. ~grin~ The cat sitters, who met all three of our girls when Luna was still alive, never see hide nor hair of Jezebel these days. It's sad, really. They miss her, though Tilly more than makes of for her absence I understand.

  2. Cats in boxes - so cute! We used to have a cat that loved paper grocery bags. Have a wonderful weekend, Darla :-)

  3. haha...you are so funny. What is it about boxes and plastic bags that cats like? I leave a box or bag laying around and Lily is up in it. But....let me tape up that box and cut entry holes in it and she wants no part in it. I don't know. They do keep life interesting.

    1. I'm so thrilled when my silly humor amuses. ~hugs~ Animals sure do keep us on our toes. Jezebel went after my chicken today so hard I finally put a few tidbits on an empty cat food plate. She gobbled those and then got in my face again. ~shakes head~ I didn't have the heart to force her off the table.

  4. Cardboard boxes, one of the Necessities of Cats! Or so my own cats are always informing me. :) Hopefully Jezebel is enjoying her new space...for now. :)

  5. Such cute kitties. Mine never get that close- except when attacking one another.

    1. Thank you for the kind word. And I'm sorry for your travails! That's so sad you don't have peaceful relations between your critters. I'm stunned. You're such an excellent caretaker; I'd think they would follow along in your spirit.

  6. That can't be comfortable. For the human. As we all know, cats will perch anywhere.
