It was a sunny winter’s afternoon and Indie was indulging in her Cat Given Right to sunbake on the dog’s cot mattress while Jessie with aged and aching joints really needing the support of the mattress was lying on the bare floor boards.

I am a gorgeous cat with the right to be anywhere

Life is tough for an Old lady but I still have some fun

Moments after I took Indie’s photo Phantom placed himself onto the mattress being careful not to lie on her. She was so surprised by this unprecedented invasion of “her” territory that after an initial scowl she resumed lying, although without the previous abandon.

There's room for Two

I went inside soon afterwards and Phantom had to go where he thought life might be more interesting leaving Indie with sole tenancy.
