This is mainly aimed at those who have more than one cat... Just thinking about my daily routine, I do have much more hands-on contact with Simba than with Tiny and I feel slightly guilty about it. My daily routine: 5.30am - 6am - wake up with Tiny sitting on my chest, purring loudly and sonorously. Wish that he was doing this for any other reason other than him being extremely hungry. Give Tiny a stroke. Locate Simba at the bottom of the bed and say good morning. Feed both cats. 6am - 7.30am -get ready for work. Simba follows me around, hoping I'll go back to bed, looking a bit sulky. Tiny goes about his own Tiny business, largely consisting of climbing on the kitchen workshop and imploring me to let him out in the garden. 7.30am - leave the house, say goodbye to both cats. 6.30pm - return home and greet ravenous cats, before picking Simba up for a quick cuddle and then feeding them. Post-feeding, Simba comes to find me and jumps on my lap, often emitting a satisfyingly resonant and fragrant catfood burp as he does so. Tiny stations himself a little way away, on the other sofa, and washes himself with a thoroughness that would put many other animals to shame, and then falls asleep. He will tolerate a bit of stroking and attention at this time, but gets grumpy if it's too much. Simba usually ends up on the arm of the sofa next to me, companionably watching whatever reality TV police programme happens to be on, and occasionally giving my flatmate the Death Glare. 10.30pm - go to bed, with Simba hot on my heels. I spend at least 15 minutes stroking him and complimenting him before putting the light out, which has been part of our routines for about two years now. We both fall asleep, with him up next to my face. At some point shortly afterwards, Tiny silently creeps into the room and takes up his position at the bottom of the bed. He is always there when I wake up. On occasions, I wake during the small hours to discover them both furious and slapping each other, but they usually sort it out. This morning, I broke up the fight by saying, out loud, "Stop that! I've never heard of such nonsense! Make up! Shake paws!" I didn't really make them shake paws, but I did pause and wonder about my sanity for a brief moment - it worked, they stopped fighting and looked bemused. So, does anyone else find they have much more contact with one cat than another? Does it matter?
