Cat habits

What are you going to do when you have a home with three resident cats and only one door that opens to a screen door?  Normally you just sit back and watch what happens.

When I opened the inside door this morning Jazz was the first to make it to the screened viewing position.

But that was short lived.  Blackwell, now sometimes known as The Big Cat, soon showed up hoping to take a spot next to her.  But Jazz is not big into togetherness.  When a snarl didn't scare him off, she left.

A little hostility doesn't faze the big one and he settled down into the place of dominance.

But that left Muggles, the oldest but most nervous of the three.  She crept up behind Blackwell, thankful to peer over his shoulder.

But that only lasted for a moment and she soon fled the room as well.  Blackwell settled in for a session of watching whatever moved outside the door while the other two pouted.

Cats.  Can't live with 'em.  Can't live without 'em.

You have to love those cats, Cat.

Even without trying they keep us entertained with their habits. You gotta love cats.

That's great. I'm used to dogs who happily share the view to the outside world.

Obviously you need more floor-level windows.

I absolutely love cats. I once had to cats that were trying to “tell” me when they wanted to go outside. They would come by my feet, they would purr and “miaow” at me until I would get up and let them out.
