House Cats of Central Ohio: Love Triangle

In this episode of House Cats of Central Ohio, we find spurned, long time lover Sookie sulking. Miles seems to have thrown her over for the younger and more formally dressed Olivia Wigglebothum. Rumor has it that Olivia gives as good as she gets in the grooming department.

Whatever cat fight is brewing, Miles will sleep through it.

In a twist of blackmail, back stabbing, and faked evil twins, Sookie has a plan!

The Wigglebothum is out. Sookie has resumed her deserved place.

On the next episode of House Cats of Central Ohio, Miles finds himself trapped like a CATerpillarby one of his jealous loves.

Will he metamorphosis? Will he fly?

We’d like to speak to a manager

Not sure what happened. I turned around to find that they had followed me into the bedroom and were lined up like this.

Sookie seems intensely concerned about that amount of laundry that needs done. ( She really needs to worry about the 5 baskets that need put away.) Birdie has the vapors and passed out on a boot.

I’ll assume that Miles thought there would be snacks.

Sookie Relaxes

Sookie belongs to Miles. It’s been that way since a day after I brought her home from the shelter. I am simply a provider of food and a possible serial killer in her eyes.

She rarely relaxes around me. It was only last winter that she started actively sitting beside me on the couch while allowing me to pet her. Even when she’s snuggling with Miles, she keeps a watchful eye on me, guarding her man from the two-legged predator.

I do my best to not disturb her when she finally does give in to sleepy peacefulness. There’s a progression. Sookie on her side, belly floof exposed is definitely an adorable start. It’s when she goes for the upside down head and even more belly that she’s really having a zen moment.

I watched the couples version of her relaxing over the course of a morning (I have grading but would rather watch cats sleep)

You can see her changing head and body positions for the deepest sleepiest stages. Until we arrive here at the apex of couple cuteness. So much floof.

reFURbishing

Miles is the only cat in the house who isn’t absolutely horrified by the vacuum. Annoyed? Sure. However he’ll typically sleep through my efforts to clean.

I’ve learned that the payback for his casual acceptance of the vacuum is that within an hour of me cleaning, he will start the reFURbishing process. He will find a way to not just add some hair back to carpet, but to leave actual tufts whether through wild-eyed playfulness or hardcore wrestling. This week, I came running because Sookie was shrieking. Miles went for hardcore wrestling/fighting with her, and left me tiger tufts across the living room.

I swear he’s just thinking about re-hairing strategies in this picture.IMG_7657
