Here is a companion picture to the one posted on our blog yesterday. Nice happy scene, right? Brother and sister peacefully waiting together to come inside.
Ah, kitties, let us let you in on a secret. We really mostly just coexist and "parallel play". Audrey will climb on the couch close to Simba, but never the other way around.** Simba's world was definitely upset when Audrey came here to live in June last year. Sharing is not easy for him, and considering how much has changed, he has been pretty tolerant. We sometimes have some chase games, but Simba gets a bit rough and then Audrey hisses vehemently. Drama Queen, says Simba. Mom says the worst is when we BOTH want dinner and are hanging around the human(s) in the kitchen. Both of us get pretty irritable with each other at that time.
Dad says having each other around makes life more interesting for each of us. It sure makes life more interesting for the humans!
** After Mom had put this post up, Audrey felt the need to demonstrate how SHE climbs up near Simba, but not the other way around. Mom has never seem us this close! Note the pained expression on Simba's face.
