Default Devious Cat Tricks!

For years, whenever Chessie comes into a room and finds Nikki snuggling with
me, Chessie goes into I'm-having-the-most-wonderful-time mode. She starts
flinging catnip toys, chasing and rolling with them. Naturally, Nikki soon
leaves me to join in the wonderful-time fun. Don't have to tell you what
happens next. What I want to know is Chessie's thought process which tells
her exactly how to entice Nikki away from me. Nik does not do this - her
method is just to clamber up, push in and make room for herself between
Chessie and me......whereupon Chess jumps down in disgust.
Hmmmmm.....perhaps Nikki does have a thought process!

I have no doubt about it. Mimi used to run back upstairs and jump
onto the still-warm bed while Stinky was busy stuffing his face.

tells

This is not confined to cats. My neighbours have three dogs, an English
pointer, a Springer Spaniel and a Border terrier, all bitches. They are
expected to share the same bed, which isn't really big enough. It's okay if
the pointer gets in first, the others arrange themselves around her. *But*
if the springer and border get in ahead of the pointer, she can't get in.
The first thing she does is to grab a toy and play with it in front of them.
This will sometimes have the effect of luring the springer out to play with
the toy and then Tess the pointer will then rush into the bed and lie down.
If this fails, she will go to the back door and pretend she can see a cat.

This works always. Both the others will rush to the back door and ask to be
let out. Tess then settles herself in the bed.
She needs purrs, actually. She's had a cough for a while and started to
lose weight. TED says she has a growth in her chest, pressing on her heart.
Her hoomins are considering what to do. She is 13 and they adore her. They
know what they need to do, but have to come to terms with it soon. Purrs
needed that they can face this decision. She's such a lovely d*g.

I think she might. ) My Nikki wouldn't dream of coming near when Frank
is in my lap. She adores and respects him too much to try and oust him.
She never gets in my lap anyway. If I lift her up, she sometimes stays
and even falls asleep, but she never comes volontarily.
