Emeraldas’ relationship with Yuki and Lefty is complicated.
I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. To be honest, we’re not sure if she realizes that they’re two separate cats.
It’s an easy mistake to make, I suppose. They are similarly sized and colored. One is floofy and the other isn’t, but maybe Her Majesty isn’t particularly texture-oriented. Whatever the explanation, she does sometimes seem confused when her boys are hanging out together.
But in the normal course of affairs, she’s happy to accept grooming from Yuki.
(I love that paw across the back of her neck. So sweet!)
And she’s just as pleased to be groomed by Lefty.
Not all is sunshine and rainbows, though. Disagreements do arise.
I can neither confirm nor refute rumors that Lefty tasted Yuki’s saliva on Emeraldas’ forehead. But he definitely got a tongue-full of something he didn’t care for–and this is the guy who’ll eat almost anything except feta cheese.
