Cat Beds, part 3

IMG_2957
A very dubious expression

I thought I’d ‘won’. Finally! I was sitting in the living room chair reading. GC was nowhere to be seen. WC approached the ugly brown couch where TWO cat beds were situated – one on either end. She jumped up on the couch and began sniffing the new bed. I pretended to ignore her. 🙂 I knew if I LOOKED at her it would spoil EVERYTHING. NO LOOKING!!! WC has very strict rules. I held my breath as she actually stood on the bed, then sat. I didn’t think it was going well – she had a distinctly dubious expression. She began sniffing the couch. Are there cooties here???? The sniff test seemed to go well but then fate intervened.

Can it pass the sniff test?

GC jumped up on the couch, between the two beds. I don’t know if it is because GC smells ‘wrong’ (she is not in great health) or if her presence was merely offensive in and of its own right, but WC, who is not really known for being aggressive, hissed loudly. GC looked at her. This was apparently also a mistake. WC batted at GC several times and jumped to the floor, stalking off. I quickly took the ‘new’ bed and tossed it on the floor in front of the fireplace. Heaven forbid GC sniffed it or touched it in any way!!! I don’t know if it was the bed, or the fire, or merely asserting ownership, but WC DID deign to sit in the bed in front of the fire for awhile. It didn’t last of course. WC will NEVER make our lives easy.

I may be in this bed but I’m not happy. And it’s YOUR fault.

Before I went to bed I tossed the new bed onto the chair next to the fireplace. This chair does not have much appeal – I almost never see any of the cats on it. My goal was to keep GC out of this bed. She seems to be extremely happy with HER bed on the couch, but knowing GC she might easily go sit in the new bed just to annoy WC. Sisters, you know. I suspect the new bed will languish, neglected, on the chair. But I think that is where it is going to stay. WC can either sit in it there or not. I’ll try to remember to toss it on the floor if there is a fire going. It is very, very difficult being staff to cats.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

One thought on “Cat Beds, part 3”

  1. Oh dear oh dear…poor WC. LOL And I’ll bet you’re right. She can smell or sense that GC is not well. I hope all 3 will claim and settle in a bed soon!
