Who’s in Charge Here?

The above pic has nothing to do with the post below.  I just realized that here we are taking a pic of Dad and Sis together and now, they are both gone.  Just seems sad, but also fine as my new spiritual alignment has me know.

Anyway, I was lying in my bed, propped up on pillows, watching a show on my tablet (as I often do), and decided to stop.  Now, I wasn’t certain how long I would stop, so, instead of putting the tablet out of the way on the headboard, I sat it about 1/2 way down the bed on the right side.  The cat has the top right 1/3 of the bed to herself, to sleep (and to annoy).  I didn’t want to put it “on her territory” so, the middle to bottom 1/2.

She came in a few minutes later (never figured out how she really knows that – almost scary) and jumped up on the bed, looked around, and went STRAIGHT to the tablet and stood on it.  I pushed her off the bed and said, “No”.  She climbed back up a few minutes later and repeated her actions.  I repeated mine.  There was a small war brewing here and she didn’t know she couldn’t win it (or…).

She came back in once more and walked toward the tablet.  I smacked her a little on the backside and said, “No”.  When she didn’t move, I repeated these actions.  Then, she looked at me, moved up and put her paw so that it just touched the edge of the tablet, and she lay down right there.  I am fair.  She wasn’t really breaking my rule.  She stayed there for quite awhile – I think just to prove her point.

So, who’s “really” in charge? and just how smart is this cat?

Yes, this is an old picture.  She is older and, hm, wiser…

Namaste,

Scott

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
