Mini Cooper never allows Nine to sleep alone. Wherever he is, she finds him and pushes her way in. I have never had a cat that was so insistent on being with another cat. Nine tolerates her most of the time until he doesn’t. Deep down I think he loves having a little sister who adores him (or not!). Mom adores them both.
The big dogs were away on a play date so Noel decided she was going to come into my offices and sleep on Louise’s dog bed. She has never done that before that I recall. When she is in the office, usually she hides in the supply closet and sleeps on the boxes of paper.
Louise was a bit confused when she returned from her date to find Queen Noel in her bed. But Louise, being Louise, did not roust her or do anything the other dogs around here would do (like chase her away or nibble on the pillow very close to her to scare her away).
The Honorable Princess Lulu, laid down quietly next to her bed, with Queen Noel in it, and went to sleep. Noel the Queen of the Zoo and her court.
I cannot imagine a life without cats!
I am not sure Mini knew that she was the focus of attention when she chose to hide behind the front door this morning. Sometimes I wonder if the cats know that their tails are sticking out under things when they hide. At first, when I saw the group hovering, I freaked. On occasion, Black Rat Snakes have found their way into the foyer and I thought that was what they were all looking at. On closer observation, it was too fluffy and moved slowly (which the snakes don’t do when they are in the house).
Mini must have felt all these eyes on her tail because she started to pull it back behind the door with the rest of her.
No animals, or tails, were hurt in the moment. Thank goodness.
What kind of mischief did you get into today?
For the first 14 days after Mom’s surgery, she could not step on her foot. The big dogs were gone and it was very quiet. We helped her sleep. And we helped her work. And we fought over her lap. The first week all she did was sleep but then she started to work lying down. Mini and I would fight every morning to see who could win her lap. Mom called it LapWars: LapTop, LapDog, LapCat. At the end of the week, the score was Charles: 3 Mini: 4. Noel did not try to play, she just wanted to sit next to Mommy on her knee scooter and stare at her. Sadly, the big dogs return on Day 15, so we don’t know if LapWars will be permanently interrupted by Louise and Sofie pushing in to own Mommy. We will see – stay tuned to this channel because next week I am going to rule the lap! (Mom says 2 weeks down and 6 to go before any dog walking is possible). – Reported by Charles, the MugWump
