memprime said: I look forward to new pics. Have you gotten a pic with all your cats in the shot? Or do you (as I suspect) try to keep all of them from being in the same room at time same time to mitigate the chaos and destruction they cause?
I don’t really try to force them to go or stay anywhere. The house isn’t gigantic, but it’s big enough that they can stay away from each other if they feel like it. Four of them will come into the living room if I have guests over, but Wheatley is a coward who hides under the bed. If I’m the only person there, Uriko burrows into the guest bedroom blankets and avoids the rest of the world, while the other cats sleep where they please.
I could set down a can of wet food to lure them all in, but I have to feed Uriko out of her own bowl a few feet from the other cats or she growls and tries to hiss while eating. Luckily most of the cats are old enough that their destructive tendencies have mostly mellowed. Wheatley doesn’t destroy, he just likes to uproot every rug in the house and open all the cabinets :/

Oh, Martin is everyone’s mommy. He’s the only cat that all the other cats like, and he used to take care of any newcomers who showed up. He’s getting old and crotchety now, so he doesn’t put up with kitten energy like he used to. Uriko is several years younger than Martin, and I think she believes he’s her mama.
