Trying to be Cat Friendly


We've had Angie, our tabby cat, for 12 years now. She's about 14 (we don't know her actual age because we got her from the Humane Society), so she's a bit of a senior citizen.

One of our biggest concerns in getting Cabana was how Angie would do in sharing her territory. Angie has beat up pretty much every cat in a 1-mile radius of our house. After umpteen skirmishes, though, the neighborhood cats now know to keep their distance and remain on the borders of our yard.

Cabana is very curious about Angie and would love to be friends. But Angie isn't lowering herself to that level. She doesn't even want any cat friends, so at this point, a dog friend is definitely out of the question.

But they have had some close encounters with each other. Angie is allowed on furniture, while Cabana is not, which enables Angie to stay a little out of reach. Eventually, though, I hope to find them cuddled up together on a pillow. If that ever happens, I'll be sure to post a photo of it!!

Your cat is gorgeous. I like her markings. Maybe when Angie is truly senile, then she'll let Cabana hang out with her... Or not...
