A not uncommon sight in recent days.
Lefty likes the upper of the two portable caves (though I suspect he’d be less enamored of it if he knew it could theoretically be moved).
Rufus, meanwhile, quite enjoys the condo in the afternoon. There’s enough sunlight to warm his flanks, and the carpeted surface is soft enough for comfort, but solid enough for support.
But not all is peace and tranquility in the upper hall.
A few minutes after I took the photo above, I heard the sound of minor feline politics.
When I peeked around the corner, I found Lefty sitting on the floor looking somewhat confused, and Rufus firmly in possession of the cave.
While we think of Rufus as a mild-mannered fellow, he doesn’t hesitate to make his wishes known.
However, as soon as Rufus realized I was looking (and getting the camera ready)–
–he came running over to me for some attentions. Clearly, tummy rubs are a higher priority than maintaining ownership of the best cave.
And yes, Lefty did reclaim his turf while Rufus was otherwise occupied.
