So this happened the other night. It’s rare enough for Olympia (left) and Galapagos (right) to be anywhere near each other without tussling, but see that spot between them on the couch? That’s where I was sitting, with one cat on each side of me like armrests. Both cats were clearly uncomfortable with the arrangement, but neither wanted to be the first to leave the couch and thus admit defeat. This detente lasted well into the night.
