When TB is sleeping in the bed by himself, Violet is always curled up as close to him as she can possible get. I need to move around a lot because of my body pain - I can't stay in one position too long (which is why I wake up so much).

So, when I am sleeping alone in the bed Violet takes up all of TB's side and leaves me alone. When we are both in it, she gets down and goes and sleeps in one of her many beds around the house. She will come up again in the night, but when I move, she's gone.

Now that I have been sleeping a lot in my chair, Vi has started taking over my side and looks pretty ticked when I decide to crawl in during the night. I feel like the "other woman"!

Thanks. It was one of the rare times all three were actually sleeping during the day at the same time.

Thank you, LP and Mad Cook, for the catsnot sites. He's about the same this morning -- I'm hoping to play the waiting game for a few more days.
I'll post his photo if I can get it to work.

Yes!

I hope it's just something minor like a cold and that he gets over it quickly. I have a friend with an asthmatic cat who has to use a puffer!

Thanks, all. My other cat is his litter-mate brother; carbon copy except for the chin.

Beagle would love to cuddle with him, and would probably get her nose damaged trying...

I was just looking at a list of cats that love attention and will play with you very readily. Two caught my eye. The first one was Siamese. When my daughter died, my granddaughter had a Siamese that was absolutely devoted to her. If it weren't for Tasha, I don't know how my GD would have gotten through the days after. The only time she every bothered with me was if DG went away for the weekend and Tasha needed and wanted some attention. Then she would jump up on my bed and sleep on the pillow next to my head.

The other cat we had was a Maine Coon. I didn't know the name of it at the time, but everything the article said was so true. That cat grew to be huge. The article said they are the "raccoons" of the cat family. She loved to pounce on my feet as I was walking around the house. And as any of the kids were walking down the long hall, she would come out of one of the rooms and stalk them. Then she would dash in front of them and let out a howl that could be heard outside. She loved to play and gave the family hours of laughter. Anything and everything in the world was just a toy for her. Of the two, I think I loved the Maine Coon the most.
