Who’s the Boss in YOUR House?

Published by:

Since the only two “people” in my house currently are my 20-year-old cat and me, one would think the answer would be obvious. Well, maybe it is to anyone who’s ever been owned by a cat.

Grey Eagle is.

King Grey Eagle

As he’s gotten older and skinnier, his thermostat doesn’t work as well as it did when he was younger, with more meat on his bones. Consequently he craves human contact whenever he can capture it. And it’s not good enough to just sit on my lap. He has to sit “up top” where he can stick his face, complete with whiskers, in mine. Ugh. That means many of our evenings, when I choose to sit on the couch, are spent with me trying to convince King Kat that he would REALLY prefer to sit NEXT to me rather than on top of me. To top off all his other attributes, he is extremely persistent, so this exercise in frustration can go on for an hour before one of us finally gives up.

Bedtime is another wrestling match. Again he wants to perch on top of me, where he can stick his whiskers up my nose.

Grey Eagle’s Physique

Believe it or not, last night (and, remember, this cat has owned me for ONE MONTH LESS THAN TWENTY YEARS) I had a flash of brilliance. Why not just throw the cat out of the bedroom and close the door? That’s what I did this morning at 1:30. Oh, G.E. had a few things to say about that, but for the most part it worked wonderfully well.

I should tell you that people’s reactions on meeting G.E. for the first time tend to be mixed. They’ll take one look and say something like,

“Oh, he’s really . . . (you can see them wrestling with themselves not to say the word “ugly”) skinny, isn’t he?”

They’ll follow that statement with, “but he has a beautiful face.” As you can see above, that’s a true statement.

G. E. is actually pretty amazing for a senior citizen of some 140 years. His appetite is excellent, his elimination is superb, his eyes are bright and clear, his hearing is obviously top notch (just try to get a can of tuna past him) and he can still jump up on the bed unassisted. He recognizes people he knows even if he hasn’t seen them for years.

Shevy and I used to have a running joke that with his good health G.E. would be going on long after we’re gone. Sadly that’s now halfway true. By the way, G.E. considered Shevy his best friend, but Shevy didn’t return the favor as a result of a lifelong allergy to cats. That meant that anytime he had the opportunity, G.E. would make a beeline for Shevy’s lap, and Shevy would suffer for it for a day or two afterward.

We shall see if my newfound resolve to sleep alone is the answer I’ve been searching for.

They don’t call me dense for nothing.
