Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

Izzy’s younger brother Murphy (a.k.a. Munky) came to us as a 3 month old kitten. I was worried at first about introducing him to The Man; even though we’d agreed to get another cat, the interview process was up to me. I was more concerned with picking a personality that would mesh with Isabel’s than any of the other variables I might have considered. So I was a tad worried at first that The Man and Munky might not get along. Looking back, that’s the silliest concern ever. Munky & Izzy had some rough moments in the beginning, but ultimately became quite close. Before that happened, the bromance between Munky and The Man got started, and has never stopped. They’re best buds. They like to watch baseball together, hang out on the couch together, and most importantly, take their naps at the same time. Don’t let The Man let you know that I’m calling him out on napping. He insists that he never sleeps unless it’s bedtime. Here’s the proof. They’re just snapshots I’ve taken with my phone over the years, but if this isn’t a story of true companionship, I don’t know what is.

True love - Munkey and The Man napping together a couple of years ago. He's too big to sleep on someone's neck now, but this basic scene still plays out most days at our house.
