Cassie at rest


Most of my readers know that we have two cats, Cleopatra and Cassandra. They are sisters, almost six years old and still manage to get into a little trouble. From the beginning, they liked to chew up plants we used to decorate the place. Eventually, we decided it best to get artificial plants.  But they chewed those up, also, although I don't think they actually ate them.

As a last resort Lois Anne found a plant which had small, rather sharp, spiny leaves. We thought they would not chew on this plant because it had a bitter taste and might even cause them a little pain. As you might guess, that worked up to a point. Cleo left the plant alone. Cassie, though, after a little thought determined it was a great place to take a nap.

That's what she's doing in this photo.

You can't win with a cat! ;-)

I love this! Cats are such interesting creatures. I think they have a keen sense of what their humans like and don't like and they know just how to push those buttons.

It's called compromise. The plant is allowed but it becomes her bed when she want to rest. What an adorable and super intelligent feline. She plays you like a fiddle. :)

Owning cats is interesting for sure! Cassie is a beautiful kitty!

Somehow or other that girl is going to claim your plants as her own! When the boss of the house wants something that bad... might as well give in !!

"Gotcha!" says Cassie. And I'll bet she's purring, too.

What a silly kitty! She looks a lot like my Pandy who lived with our family when I was a little girl.
