Five on the Floor

Five on the Flor

No wonder it got pretty quiet in here. The Big Four followed their mom’s example and decided to have a nap.

They often decide to do the same things together or sleep in the same place, often on top of each other. Here I guess they lined up, starting with Mimi. I remember when they were kittens, they would all play and play and play, then one by one collapse in a heap somewhere and immediately fall asleep. I guess this is the adult version of it.

I can’t help but notice Peaches isn’t with them, and that’s not a sad realization but a fond memory. From the time they were kittens the Big Four took care of their little big sister, curling around her and keeping her warm and comfy for three years, especially on the butterfly rug. I will always remember; I wonder if they do.

    AHA!! Angus and Donal certainly take after their Mama. Our heat vents are in the floor and guess where the boys like to snooze….

      Yes, I think that’s one gene that was carried through all the generations! Poor little Mimi is often overwhelmed by her progeny, though, and sometimes has to move or be smothered.

      I can’t figure if they are aware of how adorable they are. Sometimes I think yes, sometimes I think they are just being who they are. It’s really been a new experience in all my years of fostering and living with cats to have a family like this.

      Eventually I’ll get one where there’s a cat on each wing section of the butterfly. They do that sometimes too!
