A Detente in My Castle


My first question, how many  times a week do you guys have a detente in your multiple animal castle? As for me, I have to have this ‘detente’ situation more than I want with TKS.

Today’s detente started with unmade bed. Mom L wanting a ‘cat nap’

As you can see, I was definitely Queen of the King size bed. TKS was not happy to be on the floor level stuck on the tossed aside electric blankie.  Purrsonally, I say phhfftt to her disappointment!

I am Queen of this King size bed. Tuff luck TKS

TKS was less than pleased, but then as I said before, that is her “tuff luck”!

Why can’ t I come up and join you Savvy?

Ok, ok, I know she has cute golden eyes and such a sweet face. BUT—I was HERE first!!

Ok kid, I get it that you wanna be “me”—not happening!

Finally TKS made the right move and chose to settle in elsewhere.

I have no choice. I must hold my ground and remain in the master bedroom!

You know this is her fall back position, right??

I am near the master bed, and no one can see me

Then Mom L arrived with her special blankie, spread it on the unmade bed. Guess who took advantage as fast as a house panther can be??

Sweet !! Now I am ON THE TOP!!

What can I say—I held my ground and let TKS have her day as the Top Cat!

I WON!!!

Do you ever have a detente moment in your multiple animal castle??? Let me know how you handle it in comments. I sure could use some advice!!

  2. We have lots of moments and Dad is the ultimate arbiter

  3. KING size bed huh, and I just get a single and a chaise! That TKS is a one, though it was rather good of you, Savannah, to allow the intrusion! Me I have to put up with that all the time when Mrs H wants to lay down for a nap. With 9 bedrooms you’d have though I could find one to myself!

    We like how TKS acquiesces to you…most of the time, Savvy.

  8. Hehehee… And there I was, thinkin’ you were havin’ shrimp PASTA din-dins in your castle. MOUSES!

  9. I think you handled it perfectly, S. Sometimes, it’s just about letting things happen and hanging in there while they do.

    Love and licks,

  10. I’m an only cat but I don’t like HHCutt on the bed at night. TW said he stays.

  11. I am an only cat and only have to share my bed with Mum 🙂
