Like most cats, Scarlett and Melly spend quite a bit of time looking out the window. When I'm outside my building, I often see them perched on the sills. They don't usually seem all that interested in me, preferring to focus on the dogs and outdoor cats passing by.
Ruel and I work very different schedules, so he often ends up hanging out at my apartment by himself with the cats. Sometimes, he sends me updates. He texted these pictures to me the other day; the captions are his.
"I knew she was a demon cat!"
"'Hi mom, I'm bored...'"
"'I don't understand why everyone hates the close seats in the movie theater...'"
A paper bag never stays empty for long around here.
The surprising proximity is due to the cats' exhaustion from mounting a vigorous defense of the apartment against a tiny tortie cat on the sidewalk outside. Their main strategy involved meowing loudly.
