I heard somewhere that cats don’t get jealous but that is very, very far from my experience. Chris, for example, is a very jealous cat. Whenever he sees Frankie on my lap, he has to be on my lap too. At first I thought he didn’t want me paying attention to other cats but now I think he doesn’t want Frankie to pay attention to me.
Floki doesn’t get on my lap very often but when he does Chris ignores him. This is either because Chris want’s Frankie to himself or it is because Frankie is an alpha like Chris and Chris needs to protect what is his.
that can be… and now I see this game between our two from a different perspective… thanks for giving me the right eggs-planation LOL
Purrseidon initially seemed very jealous when Katsu moved in. Her reaction could have been due to circumstances. 1) she thought ‘her bedroom’ was with “Master Munchkin”, and when Katsu was rescued, he had a problem with one eye, which the vet at the shelter had diagnosed as a contagious (to other cats) condition, SO Katsu needed to be quarantined from Purrseidon. Solution: put him in “Master Munchkin’s room” (he was the one who’d chosen Katsu). 2) Purrseidon had her whiskers in quite a twist over being ‘thrown out’, so would go outside, get on the window sill and glare at Katsu (he was oblivious). 3) When we FINALLY had a correct diagnosis (Lab tests took weeks) we realized his eye was injured and infected, which we began treating for, but he wasn’t contagious, SO Katsu and Purrseidon were finally allowed to meet. She was a bit huffy, but quickly got over it, and thankfully, after almost a year, seems to have completely accepted him.
floki was having a bit of fun with frankie’s tail there for a bit ! 🙂 ♥
He does that with Chris too and Chris gets really aggravated.
Never a dull moment with cats is there………….!!
Never. That’s probably why I like them. 🙂
Oh yea, we can all be a bit jealous from time to time, but not for long here.
I have noticed cats get over things much quicker than humans.
From my experience, cats can be very jealous. That’s why some of them don’t get along with each other.
That’s probably one of the main reasons they don’t get along.
My cats get jealous too 🙂
I can certainly believe that.
We kitties are complicated!
That’s a good word for it. 🙂
Yeh – cats don’t get jealous – or taste sweet. flavors.
I have heard they can’t taste sweets.
They all want your attention at the same time, that’s so cute ❤ Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend to all of you🐾😽💞
Same to you. Thanks. 🙂
Cats definitely get jealous. “All Kommando, all the time” has been seriously challenged since my husband died. Now it’s 2 cats, 1 human instead of 2 cats, 2 humans.I have never felt so popular. 🙂
I guess that is a blessing in a way.
