Sympathy?

Skittles has not been herself today. She is kinda mopey and wants to lie very close. The only thing that seemed to cheer her up was a ride in the car. Yes, I did drive her around the neighborhood to make her happy. She has spent some time today lying at my feet under the computer desk. Usually, that is Pretty's place of business. One might say that Pretty is not the friendliest of cats. She pretty much likes just me. I am sitting on the computer goofing around, with Skittles at my feet, using my foot to scratch her tummy. All of a sudden I get a swat on the other side of my leg. Pretty has come and is sitting in close proximity of Skittles. To say that Pretty hates the dogs is putting it very mildly. I wonder if she sees that Skittles is not herself and is giving her a break from her usual surliness. Maybe she thinks my foot is bothering Skittles. Pretty and sympathy...who would have thought?

Awh...poor doggie. I wouldn't know how to cheer a dog up. When our cats get bored and sad, all we have to do is let a fly in the house- hours of fun!

She is better today. She has hip dysplasia and I think they were bothering her. As for the flies, they have to be good for something and cat entertainment is an excellent thing to be.

Poor Skittles. Is the heat getting to her?? I know my kitties are dragging now that the temps went from 65 degrees to 90 degrees in a day's time. Hobbes does not like the heat we found out.

Your Pretty sure looks like Hobbes!

It could be some of that. She has always been one to love the heat, but it has been extremely hot lately.
