  6. Yes, it clearly was one of those Mondays, and I wish I could have/would have stayed in bed. Sophie our elder cat was napping in her favorite spot on the love seat this evening when Tiggy decided that she wanted that specific spot (not next to it or nearby where there was plenty of room), so she turned around and sat on Sophie, sending a very miffed Sophie to the other end of the cushion. I've never seen Tiggy do that before, she is usually such a sweetheart, but it sure wasn't very nice!
