Relaxing...and watching...

Spike has taken over Angel's customary resting place by the front door. Usually this blanket is reserved for Angel - and the other two cats have no interest in sitting here. But Spike has decided to see what it is like to sit here...and when Spike decides he is going to sit down, the other two have learned to move out of his way. Spike established his dominance quickly after joining the household. He can't hear the other two when they hiss or growl at him, so he just keeps on doing whatever he has started. His size can be a little intimidating and he has a habit of rising up with his front paws hanging in the air. He has great balance when he stands on his back legs and almost looks like a giant meerkat! He will come running over to one of the windows when he thinks there is something outside of interest and if another cat is in the prime spot by the window, Spike will just push right in beside. So we typically see Spike running eagerly to a window...and an annoyed cat (Angel or Sebastian) vacating the spot shortly after!
