Sibling Rivalry

Ever since Sam became mobile, he and the cat have been waging a turf war. Compounding this situation are all of Sam's new toys. Like balls with jingly things in them. Which are a near identical version of toys we used to have for the kitty. So why was I so surprised this morning when the cat strolled over to Sam's play mat, looked me squarely in the eyes, and puked all over it?

Edited to add: Since I published this a few short minutes ago, the cat puked again directly in front of the washing machine where the baby's play mat was being washed. How do I know this? I stepped in the steaming pile with bare feet. And then he took a big dump on the rug right in front of his litter box. Since I had just given him some treats, he probably thinks I was rewarding his disgusting behaviour. Yipee!

Wow, that cat is pissed at you.

And yet, he snuggles up with me every chance he gets. He really is a good boy, and he's very patient with the baby. I love my kitty!

I'm glad someone else views it as sibling rivalry! They really can find the most disgusting ways to get back at you.

He was just having a bad day, I think. He seems happier today. He was just giving Sammy some kisses.
