“Now Salmon here, he’s new,” she continued. “He’s only been with us for a year, and he sleeps all around the bed. However, he has been gunning for her spot.”
“All he wants to do is try to sleep here. I believe that this spot right here is like the head cap. So last night, I wake up, Bubba is here in her designated spot, and Salmon is right down here. I have to move Salmon so I can get up to go to the bathroom. I return from said bathroom, and Salmon is on my cat’s pillow, and my black cat is on the ground.”
Now, if this was me, I’d be really curious to know exactly what transpired for one of the cats to be on the floor in the 2 minutes I was out of bed. And I’m not talking about the possible actions that were taken for Salmon to take Bubba’s spot. Play-by-play is how I would want to see it.
Would it be like siblings stealing the comfy spot once the other gets up from it? or would it be like Scar and Mufasa in The Lion King? So many images come to mind when thinking about getting kicked out of a spot.
“I pick my cat up off the floor, I put her on the pillow. I move Salmon back onto my body,” she said.
“That’s a great spot. Okay, before anybody’s coming to hate on me because I’m moving Salmon off the pillow, that’s not his spot. She’s been in the spot for 12 years, I can’t move her now, Sam’s only been here a year. We gotta stay with the ranking.”
I know that a lot of people are probably thinking, why does it matter where the cats sleep? But when you introduce a new animal to your home when you already have had one for years, they have ownership of the house.
It’s like when a new friend comes to your house, and you don’t want them to see certain parts of the house because you’re not besties yet. At the end of the video, all that had to be done was putting Salmon and Bubba on the pillow at the same time, and they cuddled perfectly fine with each other.
