We replaced a love seat: little did we know what this would create...

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties 01238708

We replaced a love seat: little did we know what this would create... well to be clear, Diane decided to get rid of the love seat we had before I met her. I have so many wonderful memories of being in the chair with her dog Jezebell that I changed her name to Gizmo:) we used to watch TV together in Boston.


Then the chair was moved and ultimately here in Los Angeles for the past nine years it was in Diane's home office. The only one that would spend time in it was Wiley.... 

So, go figure the New Chair arrives and it becomes a power struggle Jill or Wiley who get to spend time in it? Clearly not me or Diane as it was intended.

The good news is that now the power struggle is over, and Jill and Wiley are sharing. 


Just to be clear the pet friendly Realtor has no room in it, nor does Diane who wanted to be able to read in the chair i.e.: here reading chair has no room for her either:))

Our pets seem to run our lives and demand their own places in our furniture.

The cats look very pleased with their chair, I don't think you should disturb them, haha.

Hi Endre... well, we know who rules the roost in your home! 😹 Fortunately, our Mr. Marlow does not sit in places we like to sit. He likes to sit on my desk, my printer, and on my bed.

Well now, Endre Barath, Jr. we know cats are territorial ... they have marked their new spot without actually "marking" it, thank heavens for that.

Endre, Their reign over the new chair is just further evidence of their superior feline authority. It's no secret that Jill and Wiley hold the keys to the kingdom!

Endre when are you going to learn that in your house you are at the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to the use of anything.

So, I must once again share my "Rules For Cats" -  This fits your post perfectly!

Endre Barath, Jr. - whatever thoughts were in my head when I read your post were cancelled out when I read what Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 wrote. I agree with them 100% and the thoughts I had simply disappeared! 

Sheila and Larry said it pur-fectly!
