CATS ON TUESDAY
For 4 days I still didn't know if Kim would sleep in her new tent (see previous post).
When the sun came out she still slept in front of the garden house although for my taste it was quite cool. Each time I checked the tent it was empty. But then hurrah, one day I saw her in the tent ! I really was happy. I thought already she wouldn't use it and I had bought it for nothing or maybe other cats.
But no, as soon as she heard me she came out to say hello. I asked her to go back in the tent again so that I could take a picture, but as usual cats never do what they are asked for.
Rosie who always follows me everywhere greated Kim happily. Since Kim has finally realized that Rosie was a cat and not a mouse or another strange furry thing, she became very friendly with her and doesn't run away anymore. They even give each other little kisses and Rosie is allowed to play with her bushy tail.
Since she is considered now as a grown up cat by the others, a certain hierarchy was established. The Queen mum of course is Lisa who hisses on everybody except Arthur and Kim. She doesn't like Pookie and chases her away and with Rosie it's not much better.
Then comes Queen Pookie, she doesn't like Lisa and avoids her respectfully and little Rosie gets all her frustrations, she hisses and sometimes gives her a slap. Rosie is not allowed to come near her. Arthur doesn't bother her and Kim had been her baby so Kim is allowed to wash her and sleep near her.
Arthur is the pasha in the whole group. He looks at all these hissing females (even Rosie learned it) with imperturbatility and a bored look but from time to time when he is in a playful mood he chases them around. Except of course Rosie who has become his big love. Rosie is allowed to do everything with him, he never lifts up a paw against her.
And then comes poor Kim who is ignored by everybody just as if she wouldn't exist even by the neighbor cats. Only Rosie pays attention to her.
Here is Kim now in her tent and she sleeps in it all the time and seems to be very happy ! Mr. Gattino put it in a protected corner on our terrace and the garden table protects her entry. But I hope that in winter she will sleep in again and changes her routine.
This was the little tent I first intended to buy, but I think it would have been to small for her and is also more a tent for inside or sunny weather.
and something to laugh :
Almost my case ! Kim has a nice bed too !
Could be Rosie
