Cats in the Recliner
They just all cuddled in together. That's Giorgio's tail over Shiva's neck and Spirit tucked in the front. They're all on one side of the chair (and their eyes are all green).Tags: cats
Spirit and Giorgio are pure-bred shorthair Orientals. My vet asked me to take them because they're mentally ill (anxiety disorder & compulsive disorder, and kitty PTSD, respectively) and Shiva turned up at the door howling in the middle of Thanksgiving night 2001 and insisted on living with us. I found out before I took him in that his old people moved somewhere they couldn't have cats and just left him. So I have a little family of rejects. ;)
Shiva ate like crazy when he first moved in. It took months for him to figure out that there would always be food. (Maybe the kitty litter would be scarce....)
I was sitting in the recliner last night reading the paper and wished I'd brought my camera over. Spirit and Giorgio were sitting between my legs with Giorgio's head nestled on Spirit's right arm and Spirit's left arm and head on Giorgio's neck. Shiva was up on top of the back of the recliner. When he sits up there while I'm in the chair, he'll put a front leg down for me to smooch and if I don't notice soon enough, he nudges me with it.
