Every day I come home and walk down these stairs and find my little pirate cat looking back at me.  He has found his very favorite spot on the corner of the bed where he can see people come and go and still has the option to leave whenever he's uncomfortable.  You can tell it's his spot by the thick coating of hair... Like I said, I brush my bed every night before I crawl in. :)

A common sight

Peas in a Pudgy Pod

It's getting to the point where not only do we stumble into Hawk lounging at the window or on the bed multiple times a day, but him and Bandit have become thick as thieves. At night they play together, chasing, running, fetching toys, etc., and during the day they nap, and this is their favorite spot.

Generally, Hawk likes to sleep on the very far corner of the foot of the bed, nearest the door so that he can see when people come downstairs, but he definitely sleeps and we have tried hard not to startle him (whichs actually works about 15% of the time, poor sleepy mostly deaf cat).

It's yet another big step in the growth of our shadow cat. He's gone from hiding in the shadows to being Bandit's shadow.

The many faces of Hawk

It used to be that I would go downstairs and count the seconds I got to see Hawk, but now that he's discovered the bed- memory foam in particular- I am now counting the trips I take downstairs and back upstairs without Hawk running away. 

Hawk's face is magical. He has so many expressions! Like sometimes he's all "Really? I mean, really? Fine, I will give you Blue Steel once..."

And other times he's all "Have you ever wondered if there's more to life then being really, really, really ridiculously good looking?"


And most of the times he's all "WINK!"

But it usually ends up with Bandit getting all huffy about Hawk getting his photo taken:

Oh adorable Hawk and his (seemingly) one good eye. Bandit is still a pudgepants, though. Sorry Panda :)
