Every night there is a ritual around here. When the humans finish dinner, the kitties all perk up. Cashmere leads the things off by meowing at her daddy and staring at him intently because she knows it's snackin' time. As soon as Greg retrieves the snackin' bowls, everykitty gets into the act. Sometimes either Leo or Glitter will refrain, but usually all of them will get up. Leo and Glitter usually take position in the area they will be served in. If it smells especially yummy, Leo will come over, put his paws up on the table where the snack preparing is happening and attempt to ascertain whether that's what he thinks it is. If it is something extra yummy that he's in the mood for, he will pace back and forth a little. Cashmere paces a LOT. Glitter sits and waits patiently.
When the full bowls are about ready to move to the snackin' spot Leo will head over. Glitter will still be waiting. Cashmere will get even more animated and will escort the bowl carrier to the spot, sometimes nearly killing the bowl carrier! But she does not trust that the bowls will be delivered properly without her escort.
All that said to get to the next most important part of the evening. The after snack naps. There are some prime places that are in hot demand. A lot of times Leo and Glitter will vie for the ham-mock on the couch, whoever gets there first, wins. If Leo wins, Glitter will generally choose a cat tree. If Glitter wins, Leo lays on the pillows in the middle. Cashmere almost always goes to a cat tree. But everyone chooses a comfy spot, has a quick bath, and then settles in for a good nap. Snoring allowed.
So, dear friends who've read this far.. Explain what happened last night!
This shelf is for getting to the top of the Celestial Skyway. It's clearly not a Leo sized napping spot, and yet.. there he is.
And here! The hard cold floor and Cashmere is snoring away!
At last! Here's something that makes sense! Glitter got the coveted couch sitting ham-mock!
Friends, by my count there are no less than four other beds and at least ten reasonable sleeping spots on cat trees! Plus assorted couches, beds, and strategically placed blankets! Why, oh why! are those two sleeping in what can only be horrible nappy spots?? Why?? It makes no sense to me!!
