If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

Prime Real Estate

Cats are particular about spaces.  Most cats share spaces but dominance (or the cat-equivalent) can sometimes be assessed by who gets the best space the most.

My cats don't share...anything.  They even have their own kitty litter boxes.  They are forced to share food but only because when I tried to create a his and hers, he ate both.

In the new house the kitchen window is the favorite spot.  It is best when there is sun but loved regardless of the weather.

Smudge must like this house a lot because she has not been backing down, especially when it comes to the window seat.

Consequently space is now shared.

Hurrah for Smudge. Feline feminism.

This post made me smile. It's great she knows what she wants, and she won't give it up. It brought back a memory of me in grade school, where a boy tried to shove me out of my seat in the lunch room, and I wouldn't back down. He was a lot bigger than me, but I kept the seat, and I stayed with my friends.

You go, Smudge! I liked the photo of them both sharing the space. On cold days I sometimes find my two huddled together by the heat vent.
