Living with Carnivores

A vegetarian human's adventure with cats

Category: High Places

Frenemies

The human was shocked to find “frenemies,” Fireball, Corky, and Pepe all laying next to each other on one of the beds.  Given that brothers Corky and Pepe chase the Little Red Bee up and down the stairs nearly every night, it’s always interesting to find them putting aside their differences and sleeping together. During colder weather, Corky and Fireball can often be found cuddled up together under the blankets that hang over the upstairs banister.  And during the day, Fireball and Pepe can often be found sleeping next to each other on the human’s bed enjoying the far-infrared heated mattress pad.

Surveying the Kingdom

The Emperor decided to hop on top of the human and survey his kingdom from an elevated vantage point.  For the most part, the servant was cooperating and his lords and lady were being respectful.  It’s a lot of work keeping a kingdom running smoothly, particularly when you’re trying to keep a rebellious human in line.

The Monster under the Bed is Now IN the Bed!

The human was trying to make the bed. <<Silly human!>> Pepe had other ideas.  He slid across the surface and put his head under a fold of sheets and blankets. Over onto his back he went with legs kicking. The human tried tickling him, which led to flailing paws and fake biting attempts.  Do you see the little kitty face peering out at the tricksy human? Aren’t those toes cute? Eventually the Monster tired and lay still, although he kept one paw out just in case.

His Majesty

The human was trying to make the bed. Caesar wasn’t budging.  So His Majesty was (sort of) made into the bed. He posed in a regal fashion.  At least she didn’t mess with his paws.

She of Little Restraint…

Pepe was reclining. The human approached. Those soft toes looked so inviting. <<Bad human!>>

Yin-Yang Kitties

Here are Mac and Caesar curled up in a yin-yang cuddle. Before the human intruded with her camera, Caesar’s head was down and facing Mac’s haunches, so the effect was even more compelling. And see that little patch of disturbed fur on Macaroni’s side? That’s a “cowlick” from Caesar’s grooming efforts. Such a thoughtful and caring kitty!

Wedged

Caesar was in one kitty bed.  Mac was in an adjacent kitty bed (paw dangling, of course). And wedged right in the middle between the two beds and cats was Fireball.  Talk about splitting your attention and affections.

Sleep Interrupted!

The human happened upon a very-sleepy-looking Pepe in one of the kitty beds.  Even in sleep he’s dangling a paw.  (And notice all the layers of soft blankets?) In coming close enough to snap a couple of pictures, she also woke him up.  Doesn’t he look miserable?  Maybe that’s why he wakes the human up throughout the night.

Day vs. Night

There’s Mac in the bay window doing some kitty yoga to ensure her shoulders stay limber.  <<There’s the sneaky human and her evil camera come to bother me while I catch a little sunshine and think deep thoughts.>> Of course, Miss Mu has to cop attitude and smirk at the silly human, who takes her pics and then leaves.  You’d never guess how affectionate she is at 10 pm and 1 am based on how much attitude she cops if the human comes over to pet her during the day.

Peek-a-Boo

Sometimes Pepe is so quiet you’d never guess he was hiding under the tablecloth on one of the kitchen chairs. It’s only when you’ve been sitting there for a while and a nose suddenly pokes out that you realize he’s been watching you for the past 15 minutes.  <<Dude, that’s kind’a rude!>>

<<Don’t mention it, irksome human.>>
