Togetherness At Last!!

Patches never wanted Rusty to be part of our family.  When he arrived, at the end of 2005, Patches ignored him and if he got too close, she would hiss and push him away – not too gently.

Rusty was never put off for long.  He was born friendly.  Over these long years, it was evident to me that these two would never be close.

However, lately, things have softened.  Patches has started to allow Rusty to get close:

This is for real.  Not photoshopped!

We’re a close family now.  Finally.

Rusty Has His Morning Routine Down Pat

We all know that animals (even humans) have their familiar habits and routines which make us all feel comfortable.

Rusty, of course, has his.  Below are the 2 videos that make up our daily morning routine.  Of course, I usually have to interrupt my breakfast to accommodate him. He can be bossy at times (all the time!).  If I’m not quick enough, he lets me know about it!!  But it’s worth it.

It’s heartening to see that Rusty’s back legs are working better.  But, when I can, I encourage him to walk down the steps near the loveseat; otherwise, I pick him up from wherever, and gently place him on the floor.  For at least the next couple of weeks, I have to be careful about his jumping, even though he might want to do it.  Not easy when you’re dealing with a cat.

I mention “Down Pat” in the title.  For his reward, he gets Pat-ted Down.

Patches Is The First To Try Out The New Furniture

Patches likes this one. She stepped up and made herself VERY comfortable. She fits in just right.

Rusty is off somewhere in the house, napping, of course. He doesn’t know about this new tree. I wonder how he will react, especially when he finds that Patches has taken possession.

Kitten in the Basket

This little kitten is very young – still has its baby blue eyes.  It’s a Persian – adorable.  And such a sweet voice.

Dog, You Shall Not Pass Cat!

The following video is one of the best I’ve seen, showing the cowardice of dogs to cats’ existence.  Don’t get me wrong – I love dogs, too – I used to have dogs in my life as well as cats – a long time ago.

Click and enjoy and laugh.

The Great Divide

Even with this space between them, they still kept a watch on the other!

At opposite ends.  Romeo and Patches seem to have reached an agreement on the couch.

The Question of Rug Ownership

Very happy to reblog. Patches is so sweet.

Pussy Cats 3

Patches is a very patient girl.  So sweet.  She really wanted to lay down in the spot where Rusty made himself comfortable.  So, she decided to take up the space next to Rusty.  As soon as she did, Rusty left the rug.

I’m always surprised by their actions.  One can never predict what they will do.  That’s part of the allure of cats.  They keep life interesting, for sure.

Queen of the Penthouse

She definitely is a queen.

Pussy Cats 3

The cat tree with the “penthouse” at the top has been here since Patches was a small kitten.  She has definitely “grown” into it.  And, of course, it’s one of her favorite places to take her afternoon nap.
