Our oldest cat died peacefully in her sleep this morning. Mama Boo was 21. We are a very large multi cat household, but have the room and means to do so ( see the page for Kittie Kommittee)
All the the kitties after waking me up and alerting me something was wrong, seemed to know Boo was dead. They all came up one by one and touched noses with her, then followed me out to the hill behind the house where we have a small pet cemetary. Boo\'s daughter Bitsey led the troop back to the house went to Boo\'s spot looked at the other cats and made a big show of laying down in Boo\'s spot. Her daughter Little Bit went to her mothers spot where she used to lay, and curled up in it. The cats all came over to both of them touched noses with Little Bit then Bitsey and have since gone about their normal routine.Only Boo and Bitsey had two special spots that only they were allowed to lay on,and if any other cat did the war was on.
What did I witness here with Bitsey and Little Bit? Has anyone else seen this type of behavior?
