“A happy arrangement: many people prefer cats to other people, and many cats prefer people to other cats.” – Mason Cooley
“Unfortunately, sometimes, when there are only two cats, at least one cat is not as happy.” – The human
I’ve heard the expression, First in time, first in line. However, such trivial words could never apply to madame Colette. She was here first, she is in control. Anyone else entering this premises does so with Colette’s express permission or consequences will be swift.
Boundaries are established by Mademoiselle Colette. Alas, Simone is either a slow learner or desperate for friendship. I’m afraid it is the later. Colette: She isn’t very bright is she? Simone: I just want to be loved.
This is one of the few times that the human has witnessed behavior between me and that simpleton you see above. I don’t know why she had to come here. Yes, I demanded more attention but not of that variety. I should love to venture out and discuss things with those lovely birds and they want it too. If you could only hear them calling to me… This darn human doesn’t realize that I can take care of myself and can handle those big trucks when they come down the road, I’m certainly not afraid of them, well not too much, Colette
Oh pretty, pretty please… come on Colette. Just let me be your friend.
Colette: This is how it’s going to be. I’m in charge and I make all the rules.
Simone: Oh goody, goody, goody… I have a friend. Okay, so I admit the human is tolerable but pleeese! She is, after all, merely human.
Colette: Don’t get your hopes up and give me lots of space. I can make things difficult. As for the human, I don’t think she is so bad. I love having my head scratched and I love to knead flesh. Besides, she shares her salmon with me. And I get yours because you won’t eat it. Hmmm, I have to wonder why anyone wouldn’t go mad for salmon?
It is now a year since Simone joined Colette and the resident human. There is rarely any fighting and at times they do cuddle. But it is obvious, even to the human, that Simone may require someone more affectionate…
Au revoir, Colette, Simone and our human
