This Louis 14th reproduction chair has been sitting untouched in the dining room for a few weeks. None of the cats had any interest in sitting on the shiny satin surface of the seat ... which, in retrospect, was probably a good situation to maintain at the time! Papabear felt sorry for the cats so brought out a nice soft blanket for them to sit on. By the end of the first day, Spike had claimed the chair for himself. No time sharing here! It has been a couple of weeks now and Spike is still lord and master of the chair. These 5 sequential shots show a few hours in the typical life of Spike.
