Eggnog, our mild-mannered elder cat, feels that she has first claim on the hooded basket.
It was particularly appealing this morning with sunlight falling on the dresser.
She apparently abandoned her place in order to accomplish her morning rituals and came back to find the basket had been taken over.
Jemima appropriated the basket.
As I did morning chores I passed the bedroom door several times and noted that Eggie was sitting beside the basket, obviously waiting for Mima to realize that Eggie had a better claim.
Eventually she stretched out patiently, big blue eyes fixed compellingly on the usurper.
Mima remained immoveable.
The basket is a very tight fit for two cats, but neither one wanted to give in.
I think that is Eggnog's tail, but I can't be sure.
They did eventually settle for a nap.
Teasel said that she needed a basket in the sun as well.
One must keep the resident cats happy!
