so the cat is happy!
Neesa's 5 now, and has settled well into our home with 2 older cats already here, and luckily they all tolerate each other, and then attached herself to Mirrhi when she joined the household 4 years ago. Neesa's very affectionate to me, but hates to be picked up or held. Memories I think of other hands that held too tight, poked and teased. So I don't pick her up, and she comes to me for a pat and a smooch, but is very ready to use claw and teeth if she feels you've overstayed your welcome. She's a fierce one, this girl, and I love her to bits!
Lately she's decided my worktable's the place to sleep, it's nice and high, catches the breeze and if she stays awake long enough, she can watch the birds out the window. I left her there because cats are fickle, give her a day or so and she'll find another place to nap, ......not so, 5 days later and she's still there, and I wanted to use my table. I tried gently moving her along to the end, but she was having none of that, and would move straight back into the middle, snapping and snarling. It wasn't worth it to keep moving her, she was getting so angry and upset and I was getting worried for my safety, and as I quite like her (slumbering) company, a plan B to keep both of us happy needed to be hatched.
So, a stool up on the table, a doubled cloth, because a kitty has to be comfortable...and then all that was needed was the cat. At great risk to hands and arms, I quickly scooped her up and placed her on her new bed, with all digits surviving intact, no scratches anywhere and best of all, no teeth firmly embedded in my flesh. After a good deal of growling and hissing she had a wash and settled down.
|Not the happiest !|
|Everyone's happy....cat has a comfy place to sleep, up high, and I can use my worktable at last.|
Oh well, back to my F2F block making now with a table all to myself.
