Slim Shady, boy cat, relaxes on HIS coffee table. My brother bought it for me, but Shady claimed it. Jeffery doesn’t mind. He loves Shady, too. Who wouldn’t love this cat? I tried putting my ornate elephant ceramic on the table top (below right). Notice how the colors match the oversize pillow on he couch. Perfectly! But not to be. No. Shady claimed the coffee table for his own. I struggled with him for a few weeks and then knew that my beautiful ceramic elephant might end up on the floor in pieces.
Shady won! It’s all his table top for his comfort. Sunshine dances on him all afternoon with massive windows spanning the wall in front of the table.
I’m a dog lover, too. Even cats are dog lovers. When we had both cats and dogs, they got along better than siblings. They loved one another, but it was true: Cats ruled. At least in our home they did. Perhaps this was true because of the sweet personalities of the dogs we owned.
