Filling the Vacuum

When Jonah, the alpha of our pride of cats, died in late May he left a space for someone to take the crown. While Poca has always been the queen of the house, I suspected that either one of the big guys would take the position at the top of the heap. Jasper and Hodge are both over 20 pounds and they have always chafed under Jonah’s rule. But no, the Queen has refused to relinquish her throne. We didn’t see this coming. She sets the rules at the food dishes, keeps the dog and Arya firmly in line, and takes the prime spots by us either in the bed or on the couches. It used to be if I sat on the couch, Jonah would be the first to take up a spot on me, or by me. Now Poca comes trotting along and sprawls on one of the couch pillows next to me. And then looks at the rest of the beasts and says, ” In the place of a Dark Lord you would have a Queen! Not dark but beautiful and terrible as the Dawn! Treacherous as the Seas! Stronger than the foundations of the Earth! All shall love me and despair!” She’s a nerd, just like the rest of us.
