Mau is such a chill cat, especially in the evenings during regularly scheduled lap time. He loves to snuggle and can be found flipped on his back nestled between us. We can also tuck Mau into our throw blankets and he seems quite happy to snooze there.
We are fortunate that all three of our cats get along with each other so well. The bromance between the trio is pretty cute – it apparently involves using one another as pillows. They do play with each other frequently, though that is more difficult to photograph, and evidently share their toys. Such gentlemen cats!
What I have noticed about the trio is that they seem so content with one another’s company and apparently grateful for it. (Perhaps I’m overly anthropomorphizing…) Be as it may, being happy and grateful for one’s friendships is a worthwhile lesson to learn!
Do your cats get along? What kind of relationships do they have? Do they share or do they compete with one another? Share in the comments!
Charlie and Garrus have been best buds since the summer of 2017, just before we brought them home as fosters. They see each other as belonging to the same “social group,” groom each other, play together, and snuggle together. Charlie often uses Garrus as a pillow, which apparently, Garrus doesn’t seem to mind.
But look at this! Garrus’ position as Charlie’s pillow has been usurped by Mau! Scandalous!
I can tell you that all three were making happy kitty sighs. Charlie was nearly snoring with contentment. You can actually see him smiling in his sleep too.
Mau and Garrus both need to take medication. We had been mixing their respective medications in wet food but noticed that both cats did not eat all the wet food and therefore were not getting all their medication. In particular, Garrus is known for faffing about and only eating a few mouthfuls, despite acting very excited when we’re preparing food.
So we tried another method – Pill Pockets. This time we bought salmon-flavored Pill Pockets and hoped for the best. The salmon flavor is a hit and both take their medication without faffing about or a fuss.
The boys are often down for a snuggle in the morning…or any time of day. They’re very good boys.
Do you have to bribe your pets to take their medication? What strategy do you use? What works and doesn’t work? Please share in the comments!
