Tuesday Doozy of a Snoozy

We leave the sleepypod® out all the time as it’s where Fiona gets her subQ fluids. It is in the kitchen where it can often be found in a sunpuddle. The sleepypod® is a very popular locale for snoozing among all the kitties, especially Lisbeth and Fiona. If Lisbeth is in full nap mode, she totally fills the pod, but when feeling kind, she’ll make room for a friend. On the other paw, Fiona takes up barely half the space within the pod!

Fiona is one of the few kitties Lisbeth doesn’t growl or hiss at when they come near her. She likes Mauricio, as do all the girls. That’s about it for her. Lisbeth is a bit of an enigma. She didn’t always dislike ALL the other girls. And she wasn’t always such a loner. How and when she changed, Dad Tom and I have no idea. I am just happy she is being kind to Fiona! I pray that does not change. Fiona needs all the love and comfort she can get.

Do those of you with several cats find they change alliances or decide a kitty that was a friend is now a hated enemy? Are you able to determine why or how this happens? I don’t ever remember this happening with any of our previous nine kitties. Even though we’ve been kitty caretakers for more than 30 years, they still baffle me!

We two seem to mostly get long, though sometimes there are major tiffs happening…and fur flies. Yikes. Then we make up and cuddle together, MOL!
When there were three kitties here for awhile the one was always left out, beatup on etc. She endured much, but she gave it out too, OMC, A Miss Whappy-Paw-Diva was she…
Only upon returning from vet visits have we evfur seen furends becoming enemies, but that was always temporary.

Sending big purrs to Fiona.

We have two cats and some days I find them cuddled together and other times they ignore each other. Rosie is definitely the boss and she seems to decide when she wants to be together and when she wants to go solo for the day.

I have always wanted to get myself a sleepy pod. Mom has a problem recalling that I want one but I may get one for Christmas. Fiona…love to you.

Well, it hasn’t happened with any of us, but after Mom’s original cat years and years (OK, decades and decades) ago got out and got pregnant, she not only wanted nothing to do with Mom but turned out to be a very inattentive mother! And she held that grudge pretty much constantly until her death some 16 years later. Go figure.

The sleepypod looks cosy. It is nice that Fiona and Lisbeth share it.

We think you need another sleepypod!

We’re glad Lizbeth likes Fiona. It’s hard to figure out why us cats do what we do.

Sending hugs to Fiona. That sleepypod looks great. Sophie and Olive don’t get along, but they never have. I hope they can get along one day!

My cats can’t stop looking at that sleepy pod! I might have to get them one! Amarula always growls at Frodo and Zulu when they come near and try to play (they would love to be friends with her!)

But suddenly every winter when she is forced to be an indoor cat cause of all the snow (which she hates since she is actually from South Africa–i rescued her as a street cat when i lived there and brought her back to Canada with me) she has all this built up energy so she will actually go up to Frodo and Zulu and wait for them to chase her and she will play with them all winter and barely hiss! Zulu and Frodo are so happy….until spring comes around and Amarula can suddenly go outside again –and starts hating them again!
Zulu and Frodo are always so confused by the Jekyll and Hyde-like transformation Amarula undergoes — it breaks their hearts! And they always undergo a bunch of wallops until they get the message she hastes them again and does not want to be their friends! And she goes on hating them right up until winter and the snow when the whole cycle starts again! Drives me crazy!!!!

I am glad Lisbeth is nice to sweet Fiona, I bet that keeps her nice and warm when they are together in the sleepypod. My cats seem to keep the same friends and enemies 🙂 XO

I love that the sleepypod is in a sun puddle. There’s nothing better than that! And I am so glad that Lisbeth lets Fiona snuggle. I find it funny yet so cute how all the girls like Mauricio. He must be quite the charmer.

My kitties will never stop baffling me. Evan and housemate Toby are the most likely to wrestle and wallop each other, and yet they on occasion snuggle. Eddy loves Evan, but will sometimes pester him like crazy. Thimble and Eddy quarrel like sisters, and other times act like the other doesn’t even exist. Thimble usually gets along great with Evan, although on occasion will turn around and smack him. Toby likes to chase Eddy and Thimble, the former of whom never fights back and the latter of whom screams bloody murder. And, all the kitties like pup Astrid. Go figure.

Right now we only have boys and they all fight at times and get along at other times. We had two girls, Princess and Abbey. They were not friends but they tolerated each other. When we moved briefly to Myrtle Beach, Princess stayed with my step-son and was eventually reunited with us. At that time she hated everyone, especially Abbey, and would spend all her time in our bedroom avoiding the other cats. Abbey, an the other hand, was very shy and sweet to our boys, but would go in our bedroom just to piss off Princess.

The sleepypod just looks so comfy – no wonder it’s a “cat magnet” for the KB crew! I’m glad that everyone so far is understanding that Fiona is going through something difficult…..She needs all the love and support she can get!

Hugs, Sammy

Me and Angelique don’t really hang out much, but Crockett luvs everybody. Me and him are best buds, Angie’s a bit more of a loner, but she likes Crockett sometimes.

Fiona sounds like she’s close with everycat. It sounds like she is one of those “glue” cats that holds the rest of the clowder together … a sweetheart for sure.

We have 9 cats here. Sometimes they switch off on who they hang out with, but I have not yet seen cats who were friends become enemies. I’m not sure how that would happen with kitties, but their personalities are as complex as any human. Our cats can get very jealous, and it is a real balancing act trying to give all equal attention and make all feel equally loved.

Summer October 25, 2016 at 12:30 am

Binga and Boodie have always been pals, even though Binga periodically beats up on Boodie. I’m friends with everyone, but am only really close with my human.
