Friday Cat Blogging: Lydia Licking Violet


And now, a cute picture of our cats.

Lydia licking violet

Lydia and Violet normally aren’t that friendly with each other. It’s one of the disappointments of our life: one of the whole points of having two cats is supposed to be that they snuggle and play and act nauseatingly cute together, and instead ours tend to hang out in opposite corners of the room, or indeed opposite corners of the apartment, mostly interacting to bristle and occasionally swipe at each other. Jerks.

But now and then, they get friendly and even snuggle a little. I caught Lydia giving Violet a bath, and got this photo. Say it all together now: Awwwwwww.

    I can’t help it. I wonder how many poeple reading this post had a thought “pop” into their head…i.e…..”Oh, so prior to this, Lydia wasn’t into licking pussy?”
    Does this qualify as altruistic behavior?
    Similar “acts” happen in my marriage on occasion.

    I suspect your cats are in fact the more normal case… my understanding is that most cats just aren’t that social.

    I think you’re right, David. Lion prides notwithstanding, I think most cats are solitary buggers in the wild.
    Douglas Adams used to say, “I think all cats are wild cats. They just act tame if they think they’ll get a saucer of milk out of it.”
    I dunno about that, though. The lazy oafs in this picture would not last 5 minutes in the actual wild. Probably not even in our backyard.
    …and I say that as the one who spoiled them that way!
