It may look as if it’s going to be a slapfest, but it was actually a nose tap and forehead lick. Bean always wins them over. A little later they were napping just as they were the other day.
Emeraude has been scratching at her door when it’s closed sometimes, and I just can’t live with that. She’s both feeling well enough and familiar enough with the rest of her feline family that she wants company! I have to put her food away when I open the door so it can’t be open for too long, but then she’s also good at letting me know when she’s hungry again too, so I don’t have to guess.
The scene today and the rest of the photos here are from this morning after she’d finished her breakfast and scratched on the door, meowing. Bean was waiting outside, probably telling her he was out there and wanted to say hello. I opened the door and Emeraude came out and Bean went in. He checked for food and she sat on her stoop for a while, settling on a piece of cardboard. The other night I came upstairs and found her loafing in the box with the boys around her. It was dark and all the cats were black, no photos.
When she went back into her room, this is what she found. She looks especially small because we are looking straight down on her.
Not to worry. Emeraude has another favorite spot in the room—in fact I often find her up here anyway.
Later she came out to meow on the landing. Usually I can just say to the boys, “Okay boys, you need to leave,” and wave my hand toward the door, and they do. Really, they do. I am the most fortunate cat guardian in this way. They are the nicest cats I’ve ever met and nearly always do what I ask. Not this time, though—they were really relaxed and deeply sleeping so I had to pick up each one and set him on the landing where they arched their backs and squinted at finding themselves somewhere they hadn’t anticipated.
