Angel is very comfortable finding himself a spot in the living room, even if he does get rousted out occasionally by Spike. One of his favorite areas is the cat cushion on the coffee table (we now enjoy our coffee on the side tables!) although a few times he has landed the wrong way and the cushion has almost skidded off the table. We never intended for this to be a permanent location for the cat cushion but left it there one day and within an hour we found Angel curled up in it. "ooh..how cute"...I said and left the cushion there for a few more days. Then...the days turned into a month ....with at least three of our cats laying claim to it at various times. So I just gave in and left it there.
Sebastian has decided he likes the leather footstools we now have stacked beside the coffee table. He will come out later at night when the dogs are asleep and sit there for a short amount of time. The other night he was perched upon one of the stools when Angel jumped up on the table. After a quick look to make sure it was a cat and not a dog, Sebastian turned his gaze back towards the front window. He has an unobstructed view from a safe distance (as long as there are no dogs sitting by the window) so is becoming a regular visitor.
At the moment the balance has shifted and there is a ratio of 3 dogs to 1 cat in the living room. The 1 cat is Spike, sitting on that same cushion, busy cleaning those big paws of his. I heard some scuffling in the hallway so I expect that Sadie has crawled into some small hiding space to sleep in peace. A nice, peaceful background while I sit here with my tea!
