The Other Cats

Spice and Smudge.

Someone asked me if the other cats are jealous of the attention that Smudge is getting as the new kitten. Well, in terms of the attention on the Internet, the answer is that I’m pretty sure they are not, inasmuch as none of our cats, no matter how clever they are as cats, understand the concept of online media to any great extent. In terms of us giving them attention, in point of fact we’ve been pretty scrupulous about making sure the older cats are not neglected for human attention versus Smudge. Kittens are kittens and need attention, of course. But we really like our other cats as well and don’t want them to feel neglected. So if you were worried about the disposition of the other cats regarding pettings and scritchings, never fear. They’re fine.

  1. That sort of look from Spice is one reason why I don’t have more than one cat – my Zelda is a long-haired tortie and a mistress of the dirty look. Plus my apartment is way smaller than your house. It’s good to hear that everybody is generally doing okay and since Smudge showed up I’ve not worried about the others; your family are all good cat slaves, I can tell.
