Rufus has a new cave.
Well, okay, new to him, anyway.
He’s been hanging out in Maggie’s office lately. He likes it in there. It’s usually warmer than the rest of the house. His chief antagonist, Watanuki, isn’t allowed in there. And it’s got the cave.
Mind you, the room does have its downside from his perspective.
Kaja lives in Maggie’s office, thanks to irreconcilable personality differences.
And, by and large, Kaja doesn’t much care for intruders on her turf. She tolerates Maggie, thanks to frequent pettings. She’ll put up with Kokoro in recognition of her status as eldest female and queen of the crew.
There are many wary looks. Peeking, peerings, and porings over. Glares, glowers, and gawkings.
Occasionally relations break down into hissing.
But for the most part, Kaja seems to recognize that Rufus is an amiable fellow.
And so the room remains largely at peace, and Rufus can enjoy his new cave. At least until Kokoro comes in and wants it back.
