Feline Friday - The time Baggy lost his mind

Baggy is our first fur kid.  He was the king of the jungle until about 12 years ago when we brought the first dog (Loki) home. To say he hated Loki and Gemi would be an understatement. He did not like anything about them. This is mainly because they chased him and took his spot on the bed. He basically lived in the basement for 8 years, a place off limits to the dogs.

After Loki's death, he started to become a little more tolerant of Gemi. Since then he has become tolerant of the dogs. He will be out and about when they are around. He has tolerated a sniff from them (often with a protest). But while he hasn't acted like he is plotting to kill them every second of the day, he hasn't been overly friendly with them.

You can imagine our shock last Friday when the following happened (please excuse the poor quality of the pictures, I only had my phone and didn't want to leave to get my camera).

Baggy came into the room. We put him on the bed (as he can't jump up anymore). Then he went and snuggled right into Phod.

I think the look on Phod's face was fear

Then the unthinkable happened. Bagheera, the dog hating cat began to lick Zaphod. He licked him for several minutes. The Man and I watched in shock and awe really that this was happening. Phod just put his head down and didn't move.

Lick, lick

This snuggle lasted for at least 15 minutes. It lasted until the Man had to get up.

Later that day, we came upon this:

Lee, Baggy at the top, Nin at the bottom, curled up on the couch. Note that Lee has her mouth and head touching Baggy.

Clearly Baggy lost his mind last Friday, that or the end is near!


  1. Oh bless. What a sweet set of moments to remember. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Hmmm we are thinking he is "heat stealing" he probably is enjoying being near a warm body :)

  5. I believe in miracles and your post is the proof that they can really happen. And this is a super cute miracle I think. Have a wonderful friday together and a funny weekend.

  6. I think Baggy has decided that this won't ever be his palace again. And, if you can't beat em, join em, right? Such a sweet post.

    Thank you for the cute card. I loved it!

  7. Wow, they are furiends after all!

  12. We can never trust our cats. Acting one way then doing something else! Blah!

  13. Well after all this time he has learned that they are not going to hurt him, so why not make warm snuggly pillows out of them!

  14. That's WONDERFUL. I hope it happens again!

  15. The cold weather has frozen Baggy brain and he can think straight anymore.

    Aroo to you,

  16. We think Baggy has figured out they are soft and warm. As we age we looks for the warm spots. Our Miss Cindi Lou hates all of us other cats (she was here first) but she is slowly beginning to come around. We aren't nearly as afraid she is going to eat us now.
