Sasha has made good friends with the other cats in the past four months. Each cat is special to her. Gracie is her playmate and Morgan is the older sibling — part playmate, part hairy eyeball giver. Her relationship with Mollie is more complicated.
She took a shine to Mollie but Mollie is an old cat and wasn’t interested in such a young playful protegee. Mollie is not fond of other cats sleeping too close. She has a real thing about personal space. That attitude resulted in some head womps for Sasha but Sasha wasn’t discouraged.
After a lot of observation I wondered if Mollie reminds Sasha of her cat mom. She likes to be near her and she always does submissive positioning. Never aggressive or fearful. Last week I saw her try to nurse on Mollie. (That didn’t go well. Huge head womp!)
Somehow Mollie got it. She lets Sasha close by and has even been seen washing Sasha’s face (she’ll deny it if you ask her). They don’t play together (Mollie is beyond playing) but they will peacefully sleep next to each other (no touching — personal space you know!). Warms my heart.
Mollie, Sasha and the rest of the crew wish you a great weekend!
