Recently the humans bought a new cat basket to add to the three the cats already have. They do that, humans. They treat cats to new things – just on a whim. Annabel promptly commandeered it. Oh look, if I stretch out I can nearly reach from one corner to another.
For days on end every attempt by Mac to evict her was repulsed by a few sharp claws and a hiss.
This, notwithstanding Mac being a Superheavyweight and Annabel a mere Pinweight. Eventually Mac asserted his rights and while she was out of the room he investigated it. She came back in but hadn’t the gall to just dive straight into it while he was sniffing that new (well almost) bedding smell.
Just my size, decided Mac.
But if I lie up here I can pounce when you move, thought Annabel.
After half an hour he still hadn’t moved.
So she had to settle for creeping in with him and sharing. Hopefully that is the way it will continue.
