It’s been awhile since I’ve talked about my two cats.
Rachael, the little one, our “princess”, now shares her cat bed (complete with soft pink baby blanket that Mama gave her) with Micah, our rather big male tabby. I have her bed right next to a giant red heart pillow on the large table next to the entertainment center in the family room. It’s really cute to see them napping right next to each other. Rachael actually likes the heart pillow, now that she wants to share her bed with Micah. However, I would like to see the cats try being in their bed at the same time! Dave figures they probably already know it would be a tight fit for the two cats at once…
Rachael has been known to ask her “brother” for her face to be washed. He lovingly obliges — until, of course, he is batted by her and she runs off. I think she needs to learn some manners here. 🙂 Why can’t she simply walk away when she is done with the face washing – why must she strike out at Micah? Seems like her boundaries could be loosened a little more…
Since Rachael came from a shelter that gave her moist cat food once a day and dry food throughout the day, I follow the same practice. Micah has really hit his jackpot — oh boy! Tasty food once Mama comes home from work at the end of the day! He has a cute way of giving me direct eye contact, meowing and tossing his head to accent some of the meows. He only talks to me this way, of course, when he’s hungry. On weekends he will start to beg for his supper a few hours ahead of schedule. His eagerness to devour his food has led me to feed Rachael on an extra chair. That way he doesn’t push her away from her dish when he is done with his. Smart mama, you say? I think it’s more a case of cat mom indulgence!
Oh, and one more thing. You know how people say “Now what?” when things keep happening to them? Well, at the Stanton household, the new catch phrase is “Meowww what”. (You might have to be there, I don’t know!)
Meoww for now!
