Default Cats v.s. humans - contest of wills

A few moments ago I went into the bathroom to comb my hair, but Emily
our grey bratcat had gotten there first. She was sprawled on the comfy
mat under the mirror, enjoying the heat from the radiator on this
bitterly cold Canadian morning.

Gently I booped her furry butt with the toe of my show, but she only
stared up at me and didn't budge. I shrugged, and awkwardly planted one
foot on each side of her and got out my comb.

When Emily saw me do this, she immediately rose and sauntered from the
room. A coincidence? I don't think so. I think she figured she'd won
this latest contest of wills. Cats - 1, Humans - 0.

I'm curious. Does this go on at your place?

I think this

counts. If you google, you can find out why I have _two_ computer
chairs, which is even more to the point.

No. I'm totally beaten down.

No. If I walk into a room and find TuTu in my chair, I ask her politely
if I may have my chair. She politely gets up and gives it to me.
Then----she will usually jump into my lap. MLB

Heh, it's more like Cats - 1,111, Humans - 0 around here.

If I ask Snoopy politely if I may have my chair, the look she gives me
definately says 'sod off'. ;-)

These days my lone computer chair is mine to use because these cold
days our darling tortie Martha, the sweetest cat who ever lived,
prefers the cat bed on the office table behind us because it's
directly over the warm radiator. But when the weather's not chilled
I'll often come in the office and find her sleeping on my computer
chair. In Martha's case it's not a contest of wills - she just likes
it there. What to do? I gently roll the chair (Martha and all) back
from the computer, squeeze a straight-backed uncomfortable chair in
front of it, and sit with my nose a few inches from the monitor. My
family sees me why I don't turf our Martha. My answer is always the
same: "She got there first."

A footnote: a few minutes ago I finished bathing and went in the
bedroom to get dressed. I'd left my favourite green sweater on the
bed, ready to wear today.

Martha is still sleeping on the green sweater. I'm wearing a red
sweater.

I let my answering machine pick up a call from my dad yesterday
because Stinky was sleeping in my lap.
