Teaching Children How to Share
As far as the cats are concerned, in winter there is but one Best Spot in the House, a certain window sill that sits right above a baseboard heater, perfect for chasing away the chill. Joon sits on the sill most of the time but frequently pays a dear price for it: When Benny decides it’s his turn, he marches up, bites her in the ass until she screams, gives up, and moves and then he claims the coveted spot.
Benny and I have been “working on this” with loud “NO'S” and squirts from a water bottle. Things aren’t perfect yet but, if this is anything to go by, we seem to be heading in the right direction:

What a pose! Good luck with the behavior modification.
I love it when the cats pose in parallel! Our two are brothers so have been together since birth. They parallel often.
Two blog posts in a week? Is this the harbinger of something wonderful, namely, more frequent posts from Ryan? I hope so :-)
Oh my God, I've never seen a cat roll his eyes, but he is almost doing it as he looks at you there.
He's clearly giving you attitude. I mean, a different attitude than cats give regularly.
Very cute pose though. If you photoshop little Christmas hats on them, you have next year's Christmas photo.
What a pretty pair. And they have perfectly synched their tails...
Oh, PS, are you suggesting we could teach children to share with spray bottles? What a concept!
Awwww, what a sweet picture!
Lol, my big brother cat just sits on the other one.
