One of the presents we got this year was a new cube for the cats
You may recall we had one of these back when Peno was alive. In fact, it was one of her favourte places to sleep (it was always beside Dave’s couch so she could be close to him.) When she died, we decided it was time to get rid of it. It was pretty ripped up (she loved to use it as a scratcher).
I was thrilled to get another one, because Peno wasn’t the only one who liked it (though she had definitely claimed it as her territory)
It was no surprise that Burton was the first one in it (even before I got it properly set up. If Peno wasn’t on it, chances were you could find Burton in or on it. I think he was VERY excited to have another one in the house again.
And naturally, Lemmy gave it a thorough inspection.
But the BIG surprise…
Was Relic sauntering in and making himself right at home. Going inside of things is NOT normal Relic behaviour. He’s generally much more comfortable in free and open spaces with lots of options for escape (not surprising given his years as a stray). But he stayed there for quite and while, even having a little cat nap in there.
Not entirely sure how Burton feels about this development. I think he was hoping to have this one all to himself
