I found Sir Monty, who usually resides on Critter’s bed, had moved over to Varmint’s bed for a nap the other day. Moose was there too, and they were sleeping together. I wouldn’t say they were “cuddling,” per se.
In fact, I’m not sure what I’d call it.
It couldn’t have been by chance that they ended up that way, but it does beg the question: “Who was there first?” and “Which kitty decided that, er, position?”
The way I see it, if Moose was there first, do I even want to know why Monty chose Moose’s buttocks as a pillow? But if Monty was there first, was Moose making some kind of statement? Do we have some kind of kitty discord in the house that needs addressing? Is there some kind of feline dysfunction underlying the fact that Moose’s anus is Monty’s headrest?
From the outside, they both seem content with the situation, and I guess I shouldn’t judge. But two things keep running through my mind:
1) I won’t be petting Monty’s head/neck/shoulder region for a while and….
2) Who else, or what else, is Moose rubbing his butt on?
If you need me, I’ll be sniff testing all the pillows in the house.
Pray for me.
