      She’s won my heart. What’s so wonderful is that her and Mlady can get within a few feet of each other now and sleep.

        That’s great. No one wants cat fights in their homes.

      Thank you, Shuku. How do I find your blog again?? With WP I click on a person’s name and it takes me to their blog, but Blogger doesn’t work like that 😦

      Not perfect, and Mlady still “hunts” Dotty, but not with the homicidal intent she had before lol. Last night, Mlady came down from the top of the couch and laid down on my right, and Dotty always curls under my left arm. It was so nice.

        I’m hoping in time it will keep getting better. It sounds like it is improving anyway.

    Makes me miss our gato, Kesimodo. He’s been gone for several years now.

      How did Kesimodo get his name? Between Dotty and Mlady I have two good buddies.

    That’s a good way of describing what claws are good for: “Claws say I’m hers”

      Especially when they knead flesh and cling. Humans are soft scratching posts with sound effects.

    LOVE this lighthearted post! Before we moved to Boston in ’97, we lived in Iowa and had a wonderful Siamese cat we named Blossom. Oh yes…..her whiskers ticked me awake many a morning….or her lying upon my chest kneading me with her paws….and always that wonderful purr. Having owned a cat, I understand where that phrase, “Purring with contentment” comes from!

    Oh to be a cat! I love your ode to your cat. It is so spot on. I had on with a similar personality. Very independent soul most of the time.

      She is a smart cat and she, of the 80+ at the shelter was able to convince me to bring her home. I believe she’s happy. ❤
