Two Cats on Tuesday Night

Cats on Tuesday

There is a tale about indigenous Australians who, when it is cold, customarily sleep in a hole in the ground while embracing a dingo, a native species of wild dog. On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs, and if was especially cold, it would be a Three Dog Night. This is supposedly where the American music group got it's name from.

It's a been cold, relatively speaking, here in Florida, but Sunday as - as you can see - was a two cat night:

Well, okay...there is a pillow between the two but hey! They were on the bed together and not fighting. That's a huge step in the right direction, as far was I'm concerned.

In fact, I heard from one of the local realtors that Diamond came to visit and "brought her friend with her". That was a shock - to find out they've been paling around the neighborhood together.

Even so, I don't think they're quite ready to curl up together and share body heat, or engage in mutual grooming. However, word has it that it's going down to 31 (f - 0c) tomorrow night and that there will be snow in Tallahassee, so we'll see if the cold doesn't drive then closer together.

(Yes, we are whimps here in Florida, but my house was built before someone came up with the idea of centralized heating. So it's just as cold inside as it is outside!)

My cats don't sleep together either. Only Arthur and Rosie. Lisa was used to our cat Max who died 3 years ago since then she wants to stay alone. I am always "jalous" when I see a bunch of cats sleeping and cuddling together. I had to look three times on your picture to find the second cat, lol ! black on black not so easy !

hehe they are still on the same bed at least :)
I think that is so cute that they go places together!
My two little girls, that are crossed over, never were close like Vic and Mushka, however they did love and care for each other.. and were although a lot apart, always together.
I bet Miss Diamond and Tris are the same :)) There is love :)

Well that's a start, sleeping quite close together! We swap around who we sleep with here. Shifting loyalties!
