Take-Charge Thursday

I've gone orange for ASPCA Day!

As many of you know, I like plenty of purrsonal space from my siblings. I'm just that kind of girl. I'm a sweetheart with Mom and Dad, but when it comes to my siblings... well, I'm more of a people-cat than a cat-cat.

My two brothers were sitting on the window perch, and I decided they'd sat there long enough. It was my turn to sit on the perch. I'm very much a lady, but I'm strong-minded when I want to be. Sometimes a ladycat has to take charge of her destiny.

So I jumped up on the perch with my brothers.



MaoMao and Brainball looked at me. "Uh oh, Brainball," MaoMao said. "I think Marilyn wants the perch to herself." He was right.



Brainball jumped down, and MaoMao looked at me. I looked back. He could tell I was serious about wanting him to jump down.



So MaoMao jumped down, too...



Then I had the perch to myself. Oh, bliss! And I didn't even have to hiss. *smile*



My darling Mickeybear, would you like to teleport over and snuggle with me on the window perch? I promise, I would never, ever, ever run you off! *purrrrrrrr*

Marilyn
I am much like you. I am definitely more of a people cat than a cat cat. I run the other cats outta my space ... they know when it's in their best interest to move too.

Oh, Marilyn, I can't believe I didn't comment on this post. My mind is so unfocused. Mom was not feeling good for a few days and now with the sun today--and the windows open--

You got the power of the perch, girlfriend. Joy for the girlcats.
