The Truth about Tyler

Kali: I want everycat to know that Tyler isn't always the wonderful brother that you here about. With the younger cats he's all lovey dovey, but with me he's a constant pain. You don't believe me? Well, let me give you an example. For months now my favorite sleeping spot was a my cat bed on the couch. Just last week, I was all snuggled up in my warm bed and I look up and Tyler is standing over me. He tells me to get out. I hissed up a storm, but did he care? No, I jumped down and wend to the catbed by the tv. The next night, I look up and he's kicking me out of this bed too. Mom sees what's happening so she fills the family room with beds and comfy spots. When I find the down throw on the other side of the couch, I'm in heaven. (That's where I am when she took this picture of me.) If you guessed that Tyler soon came over and kicked me out of that spot, you're right!

Now I'm an old lady. My bones ache. All this moving around is difficult for me. The truth is that Tyler is asserting himself because he's jealous of the times I spend in Mom's lap. I can't help it if she loves me more than she loves him. I was here first. He may make me move from bed to bed, but he'll never be the top cat in my eyes. That's my job.

Now you understand why my life is complicated by the boy?

Poor Kali. Brothers sound like a big pain! I only have a sister.

Kali, there are many advantages to being Senior Cat and one of them is not having to give up your bed to a young upstart!!

Stand your ground and if necessary administer a few well-placed whaps to the head of the intruder.


PS I believe it's a well-known fact that Mom's always love the Senior Cat the most!!

Oh Kali - it must be tough having to share. Maybe your mommy needs a roster.

We sure do understand!
You are the Top Cat - you have that right!

Hi Kali - you look like me! This is Tigger the FBI Cat and I'm sister to the other topcatrules cats, Trixie and Tigger.

I'm old too, nearly nine and my bones ache and Pye is taking over my sleeping spot on the computer chair that I wrecked to my own specifications.

But luckily, I am top cat, so she has to settle carefully in next to me. And she's bony like a kangaroo joey - but then, so am I. :)

P.S. Hey Tyler, this is Trixie and Pyewacket. How are you?

We have added you to our blog roll list, and Tigger did too. She wants you to tell Kali that she is very pretty and that torti cats should stick together. :)

Kali, I'm sorry that Tyler can be a pain at times. I guess siblings don't always get along.

Bless your little heart! Too bad you don't whap him upside his head instead of letting him have his way. Then he might stop kicking you out of your beds.
