These two have been sharing beds a lot lately, like almost all the time. This is the first winter they’ve done this in 9 years.
I could write about how sweet this is and how they’re friends.
Truth is, sometimes Ace lets out a ferocious snarl as Beamer approaches.
Sometimes Beamer smacks Ace right on the nose, stares him in the eyes and takes the bed.
Sometimes Ace moves away. Sometimes he holds his own. Sometimes he whines, looking to me to shoo that cat out of the way.
And sometimes they accept each other and they snuggle close. Or Ace pretends not to notice Beamer.
Or they’re just cold and old and this is the agreement they’ve come to after 9 years.
I try not to get involved. We have three pet beds and they both want this one.
They can work it out.
Do your pets cuddle together?
