Domestic Tranquility (Images may not reflect reality)

Geoff the Boyfriend chiming in after a bit of an absence from the posting throne.

Yesterday I observed a most curious sight:
The two of them, sleeping contentedly together!?!?!

In fact, even after they awoke (thanks to me bumping around, taking pictures, making noise), all they did was give me a look that I read as, "Hey, we're trying to sleep here, must you bipeds CONSTANTLY take pictures of us?!?!"
Then they looked at each other, seemingly agreeing, "If we ignore him and go back to sleep, maybe he'll go away." This they did...and it worked. I slipped out and let them resume their peaceful slumber.


As Natalie's post the other day showed, the wee beasties have an affinity for sitting on the window ledge and gazing out at the great outdoors. As that post further indicated, they take turns. Thusly, I was shocked, SHOCKED, to find...

There was even a bit of snuggling

(in truth, Scarlett doesn't look all that thrilled, but tolerant)

There's still be plenty of noisy conflict between them, but it's nice to see that the peaceful times are getting so much more pleasant. In fact, earlier this evening, Scarlett cleaned a bit of Melly's head.

It goes that way here, too. Sometimes it seems we fuss and fight fer weeks and then we will just curl up together days on end. Drives TBT crazy.

Which is kindda the point...
