Brotherly Love

For cats who didn't grow up together, my kids get along pretty well. (Th e boys have a tendency to pick on Peno, but they give up pretty quick most days)

Despite that - they aren't big snugglers. Occasionaly, when Tux is very calm and sleepy, Peno will lay down right beside him, but it's rare. Rocky and Tux, and Rocky and Peno, never snuggle. They will all sleep in the bed or on the couch together, but there's always a foot or two between them.

So the other day, when I went upstairs to put some laundry away, I was suprised to find the boys thus:
Of course, since I woke them up, their snuggling quickly evolved into a wrestling match..

How familiar that looks; when my short-tailed cat came into the house he would snuggle up to the other cats (it would only work if they were already asleep)and put his paws around their tails as if he couldn't figure out why they had that and he didn't!

LOL!! I've seen that too many times myself! We have 2 boys and one girl, the girl snuggles with everyone (including us), the boys fight over the best spot. The girl also kicks either of the boys out of the best spot if she's not inclined to snuggle ... and she's a tiny little thing, but she's the boss!

Is it just me or do they look a little sheepish at being caught?
