Pepe has become a skilled stealer of chair seats. Now it’s not like there aren’t 3 other perfectly good chairs pulled up to the table. In fact, the human usually is thoughtful enough to pull out the chair to her left when she sits down to eat so he can be near her and still chase the toy mouse tied to the top of the chair back. However, the moment she leaves her chair, the Masked Bandit is up and moving into her chair in a flash. Whether she’s gone for 20 seconds or 20 minutes, he stays in her seat until scooted out. All it really takes is the human’s return, a tap or two of a finger on the other chair, and then the threatened lowering of a human posterior to make him return to his own spot.Macaroni likes to sit in the human’s lap when she’s eating or writing at the table. Or, correction, she likes to be held in both arms and cuddled when the human is at the table, rendering the human unable to either eat or write. Mac likes to be the center of everything.Pepe’s not like that. While the human is sitting in her own seat, he is content to sit near her and chase the mouse dangling by string from the chair finial. He also flips around and spins and spins until he almost falls off the seat. It’s not like he can’t entertain himself. However, he certainly does enjoy occupying forbidden territory as well. Cats!
