Today we want to tell y'all how we get along here at the Katnip Lounge.
For the most part, we all live in harmony with only a few spats.
Daddy is good at building us stuff so we have lots of places to go, even though we have a small house. He's a Cat Whisperer and he's always watching us to make sure we're happy. His theory is cats are like fish in a tank, we all need our space.
Scouty is pretty timid, of other Cats as well as Humans. He loves his brother CC and Johnny. Maui delights in chasing him and making him squeal, but Maui is actually a pretty gentle player except when he tussles with John. Those two really RASSEL.
Of the ManCats, Johnny is the Cat Cop, he shows up at altercations to mediate between arguing parties. He's Top Cat.
And, he humps Scouty!
The Baby is Queen Bee of the GirlCats. She's a histrionic kitty, she whines and spits and hisses at everybody. We all stay out of her way. Oh, and Grayce has a lethal rapid-fire swat move that's smart to avoid. Plus she BITES.
Sylvester is the CreepyCat! He hardly ever blinks, and he STARES so long we get a little weirded out.
Food is the great equalizer.
We hear the snax container and even Rupert and Maui will eat side by side. Rupert is convinced Maui wants to eat him, and Maui plays along. He's nice that way.
We all love the sun.
The top shelf is exclusively Felix's.
Laps are good.
These three pile up together at night to cuddle with Mommy on her left side.
We like Mommy the best for piling on. Daddy is a one at a time kind of lap guy; Grayce and May Ling sit on him every day. These three do not sleep with Mommy.
We all love catnip, and we are on our best behavior in the Big Bedroom--Mommy has deadly aim with a magazine! Only good manners are allowed.
Bird-watching prevents arguments...
...and we all like to help!
Really, we DO like to help. Mommy and Daddy talk to us, chide us, and pay lots of attention to us when we do projects together. We LOVE attention and we demand it!
Lizard-watching gets us close.
Nothing like the smell of fresh blood to enhance a bonding opportunity.
The magic quilt is, well, MAGIC! As you can see.
Sweet Pea is a big Washer-Kitty.
She and May Ling do not get along, but she loves to cuddle with Rupert.
Our favorite spot to cuddle is the Big Bed.
Especially if Mommy is in it!
Mommy says 13 Cats is her limit...but she said the same thing at 9, and 10...
Seriously, we are at capacity. Any more kitties, and the occasional peeing and spraying would get out of hand. We're all very lucky that we get along as well as we do, and that Daddy is home during the day to
supervise keep us company. Mommy takes over in the evenings, and then we get brushins, rubbins, luvvins, and playtime with her!
Life is Good.
