Back to Cat TailsHarley 'n' Friend
I just had to write and tell you about my recent discovery! It involves one of my eleven cats, a ginger/white male named Harley. I do think that ginger cats share similar characteristics, like size, and attitude!
Harley certainly has attitude in treble dose, he is also the largest of my cats. Not fat-just BIG! His size and 'Mr. Cool' attitude makes the other cats very wary of playing tricks on him, or generally instigating any 'rough and tumble', as they generally come off the worse!
Harley is the undisputed Top Cat in our house, and the others all know it! He is also prone to look at us humans 'down his nose' too, and heaven forbid if I touch him without his prior permission! A large, sharp clawed paw is very quickly proffered! I, like the other cats, have learnt my place. I only offer a stroke or a rub when Harley comes to me first, and rubs against my leg! He is in all ways, a typical 'macho' tomcat. But... I have discovered his secret!
When I went upstairs the other day, and popped into the spare bedroom, there he was... tucked up beneath the quilt... with his favourite teddy bear! Oh, if only the other cats could have seen it too! I did the next best thing, and snapped his pose, but now I'm wondering if I should spill the beans? Tell the others about his little 'secret?'
Or should I keep a straight face the next time Harley swaggers into the kitchen, wearing his best 'Mr. Mean' expression? Maybe it would be unfair of me to blow his cover! To ruin his reputation! What do you think?
