#Caturday – Claiming His Place

Our #4 Daughter gave my mom a cat bed for her birthday. The cat bed was for Mom’s cats, not Mom. And it was Mom’s birthday, not #4 Daughter’s. Wait. Our #4 Daughter gave my mom, for Mom’s birthday, a bed for Mom’s cats.

It must have been made for teacup cats, because it’s wee. Nevertheless, Ozzie adores it. He just barely fits on it when he curls up at his tightest, and then he often has a paw or a tail-tip hanging over.

King OzzieSweetie Pie (whose real name, I’ve discovered by process of trying everything I could think of, is Myrtle Mae) is madly jealous. She can, with determination, get her head into the downstairs part of it. She can stand up and put her head and front feet on the top.

Woe betide her, though, if Ozzie catches her anywhere near it. It is HIS throne, and he ain’t sharin’ it!

Selfish! But I already told you he’s a cat.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Two characters receive a shared present, but one hogs it.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Love that Oz! Goober grew up with a wee cat tower and is still quite certain he can curl himself up on it, too. He IS pretty good at it. 🙂
    Good thing he didn’t get TOO big. Looks to me like Oz is a big’un.

      Myrtle Mae makes him look like a bitty kitten. She’s a large animal.

    Poor little Sweetie Pie. She should be given one as well.

      Sarah, that’s the thing: Sweetie Pie (aka Myrtle Mae) HAS a bed that’s just her size. So Mom made Ozzie a bed out of a cardboard box and a towel, and Myrtle Mae (aka Sweetie Pie) took it over! Now she wants to claim this one, too, but Ozzie is NOT having it. lol
