No fire was going at the time, but they are both in front of the woodstove and Auggie is in the spot Bob preferred when there was a fire going.
Bear…I’m not sure what happened…he might have been loath to get in his chair with Auggie at the same level. Auggie plays with his tail, with his feet and then tries to snuggle up. I’ve counseled Auggie that the reverse order might work better, but generally speaking, Bear is a bit suspicious of close contact!
Auggie will also try to twine around Bear’s legs, but this is generally after a sneak attack and again, Bear is understandably skittish after being pounced on.
Overall, I am still amazed at how much Bear tolerates from Auggie considering his general opinion of cats. Bottom line, it is fun and it is heartwarming that they get along as they are.
