I brought home our usual order and put it on the counter for a few minutes while I went upstairs. This was the sight that met me when I came back into the kitchen. Sadie must have thought she found a nice, heated sitting spot which would also be great for sleeping (probably would have been snoozing if I had come back into the kitchen just a little later). Needless to say, I removed her very quickly ..but not until I had a couple of photos for the blog!

I guess, in her own way, she was keeping me company as I waited for the game to start. I was on the chair right beside her so she could have had much more room if she sat in my lap :-) but Sadie always marches to her own drummer.

Hubby saw this "book end" tableau play out earlier this week. Sadie had curled herself up on the chair and was fast asleep. Angel carefully made his way into the empty space she had left and tucked his little body into the opening. Within minutes we had two sleeping kitties sharing one space (and no hissing anywhere!)

These days, it seems that we see the cats more often in the living room when we are sitting here.Spike continues to hold siege to the cat bed on the table and has coerced two cats so far to move out of his way when he has decided it is time to lay down (cat bed seems to be even better if it is pre-warmed for him!) Sebastian is wandering through the room more often now, enjoying some prime time window viewing.
It has been three weeks since Dakota has left us - and while the cats have adjusted quickly, it still brings tears to my eyes when I look down and I no longer see my little black and white girl sleeping by the front window. You never really think about it ahead of time ..but those little creatures work their way into one's daily habits and one's heart during their time here with us.
Thank you all for your kind comments and sympathy on our loss of Dakota.

She did not care for our cats and when they came too close she would bare her teeth to warn them off. We did worry a little when we first brought her home but realized that our cats were smart enough to keep their distance and certainly were not interested in getting to know her better. Towards the end Dakota tolerated the cats and would let them share the coveted front window space with her.
