Why the cat is miffed

Here is the rest of the story from yesterday:

With a name like Cleopatra, it is no surprise that she believes she is the queen of the household.

In her kingdom there is no such thing as a dog in the house or the yard.

Until Thursday evening, when her world was turned upside down.

We have a new member of the family: a ten-year-old black lab named Moses.

This is what Queen Cleopatra saw when she surveyed her domain on Friday morning.

The queen was NOT amused.

  1. We are trying to prepare our cats in case we have to take in one of the dog-in-laws. They all tolerate/ignore each other for short visits… here’s hoping that if that time comes, it will be OK.

  2. If Moses is anything like my 9 year old black lab, Tucker, Cleopatra will still rule the roost. We have a neighbor cat who comes over and lays on Tucker’s outside bed on our covered porch, one of Tucker’s favorite places to sit/lay and watch the world go by. When “Calico” comes over, she sleeps right in the middle of Tucker’s bed while Tucker sleeps, with a watchful eye, on her about 3 feet away, not daring to get any closer–Go Figure!!

  3. Awww I know all too well what it’s like when a cat’s nose is out of joint. Hopefully you’ll be lucky and it won’t include her bladder being out of joint, also. Good on you for taking on an older boy.
