Cat Tree

THE BIG THING:  I always enjoy seeing all the cats on the tree at the same time.  It doesn't happen that often; Ayla is a bit private and still hissy to Marley (sometimes).  But I got a few pictures last night.

Ayla is on the highest platform as usual.  She really loves resting or perching up high.  If it isn't the cat tree, it's the top of the bifold closet doors, the top shelf of the shoe rack, or the high bathroom windowsill.  In fact, she likes the top of the shoe rack so much that I finally put a folded towel there to make it more comfortable!
Marley and Iza like the top of the cat tree too, but that's the only high place they can get to.  Here, Marley is eying the top platform, but I think he can sense that Ayla is there...
He is looking inside the box, deciding if that's the next-best place to be...
He went in and curled up, but for some reason, I lopped it off at the bottom.  Maybe he wasn't visible through the opening...

Aw, it's so sweet to see them sharing the tree! Scarlett and Melly don't share ours anymore: Melly has claimed it for her own.

We love seeing kitties who share :)

I'm reminded of my old stick shift three speed Ford truck I used to have--it was "three in the tree" for driving!

They are good to share. We both like the top of the cat tree and sometimes we share it.We won't share a lap though.

Wow! It looks like everyone has their place. Ichiro and I are always fighting on the cat tree.

Great pictures! Looks like Marley is fitting in quite nicely.

I see Ayla took the top bunk, and isn't letting go of it!

Ayla you sound like you're part mountain goat always seeking out the high places in the house!

It's nice seeing all three of them on the cat tree! We never have been on the cat treet together...and it's been awhile since even 2 of us have been on there at the same time too.

Ayla, Iza, and Marley said...

Well, I do have to say that the girls have pretty much accepted Marley into the house and are willing to be somewhat close.

Touching/snuggling is not yet permitted, but Marley seems happy and confident and they will all eat nearby.

Trying to recall the first weeks of the cats before Skeeter and LC (who just fell onto each other with happiness) is difficult, but I think Marley is getting one of the more easy entries into a new home with other cats.

It won't be long before I see Marley snuggling with Ayla and Iza. Just yesterday, I saw a bit of mutual grooming and some shared toy play.

They look like their enjoying their tree! Our cats won't usually get on ours at the same time either.

I have a blog that I'd love for you to check out, www.PetBlogsUnited.com. It's a great place for pet bloggers to find each other.

Nubbin wiggles,

The cat tree looks like a big hit. So nice that all 3 kitties can enjoy it at the same time.
