Adaptation

As the BRD was moving this week, she and SWMBO traded living room furniture. Whereas ours was wicker with an off-white upholstery, the BRD's was big, puffy and dark green.

On moving day, Jazz holed up on a shelf in a bedroom closet and stayed there for 8 hours or so. Finally, in the evening, she came out and walked (or stalked) very slowly over to the big couch and carefully began sniffing it. Not only is it new, it carries the scent of a couple of strange cats.

But by last night, Muggles (left) and Smoke (center) seem to have made their peace with it. Jazz (right) is still sniffing.

  1. Very cat like. This new cat we have--Black Kitty of Death (BK of D for short), is not very cat like at all. I think he might have taken a few too many clues from the Chihuahua as he acts like a dog.

    Cats that act like dogs are pretty cool.

  2. You mean when you pet him, he raises one rear leg and pees on you?

  3. It's amazing how adaptable cats are when soft furniture is involved.

  6. SWMBO says the cushions are feather pillows so the cats truly do love it.

  7. I am glad Leo can't get to them, I am sure he would pee on them! Cats are much more elegant in their approach!

  8. I know you have two dogs but I haven't had one since I was a young kid. I prefer cats - you don't have to walk them!

  9. That sofa looks like a very snuggly place for a cat or anybody else to have a lovely afternoon nap. Have you tried it yet?
