Brulee's New Eating Spot

Truffle and Brulee used to share a plate when they were kittens,  Eventually, as they grew older, Mom Paula moved them to separate bowls about a foot apart.  Brulee eats slower because of the way she eats with her tongue and many times Truffle finishes her plate of food and pushes Brulee out of the way to eat her food.  Mom Paula has started sitting between them to make sure Brulee gets to eat what she wants.
Brulee's preferred eating spot

Recently, Brulee refused to come to the kitchen floor to eat.  She walked under the kitchen chair and just looked at Mom Paula.  It didn't matter what Mom Paula tried to put in the food, Brulee would walk away and sit under the chair.  So, Mom Paula gave in and put her food dish under the chair and that little stinker, Brulee, enthusiastically ate her food.  Now when Mom Paula calls us to eat, Truffle comes running to the kitchen and Brulee casually strolls under the chair and waits for Mom Paula to put her food bowl under the chair.  As you can see from the photo, Brulee has trained Mom Paula purrfectly.

Update on Truffle

Truffle's eye isn't running as much as it was, but she's still squinting and basically laying around. She's tolerating Mom Paula putting the ointment in her eye, but she doesn't really like it.  Brulee appears to have stopped hissing (after Mom Paula rubbed her PJ top on both of them and put baby powder on their behinds).  They aren't being very social together, but things are a little calmer.  Of course, Mom Paula is a big worry wort and wants the eye healed yesterday and the two of us playing together again.  Thank you for all of your purrs.

  6. Well, perhaps Truffle isn't feeling her best either so Brulee is giving her space? You never know. We hope that she starts feeling more her old self again-

  10. I think it's great that Brulee defined an eating spot that was all her own. That's a pretty assertive move! I'm glad to hear that Truffle is doing a little better and that Brulee is calming down. We experience the same tension if one of our cats leaves with us and the other doesn't.

  12. Brulee is very clever. Snowball eats under my hubby's tv tray and he guards her or else Sammy finishes his meal and tries to help her with hers. I hope Truffle gets better soon.
