Unlike our previous house cat Cat#2 doesn’t bother with the dogs.
Generally they keep a polite distance from one another.
However the lure of the fire has finallymeant they have overcome their aversion to closeness.
For weeks they’d take it in turns to hog the hearth position. If one left the other would leap up and take their place.
During the past couple of weeks they’ve designed to share.
Although they do pointedly ignore one another during the process.
