Kitty Psychodrama

Heidi (in userpic) has never been much of a cuddly cat -- she'll let her human pet her, but doesn't like to be picked up and held. It took her a few years to accept starmalachite as one of her people (she was smart enough to figure out that the influx of strange cats into a formerly one-cat household was Her Fault).

However, she seems to be mellowing out in middle age....

Before I got home, she was soliciting attention from starmalachite (and not for the usual ONOZ I SEE THE BOTTOM OF MY FOOD DISH reason). Later, after we we got home from the dance group meeting and dinner, she let starmalachite hold her and even relaxed into it.

This made Vir (the tabby-point Siamese) jealous. He started complaining about the injustice of it all, and capped it off by ostentatiously jumping up onto Heidi's favorite perching spot on top of the rolltop desk and giving the humans his Tragic Neglected Face.

Oh, the injustice of not having the humans' undivided attention....
