Upstairs Cat Downstairs Cat

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I have Glogirly and Gloman right where I want them. On separate floors that is. I am Upstairs Cat. I am Downstairs Cat. I am Katie, master of my townhouse.

Downstairs, I am Gloman's cat.

I will come when he calls. Answer when he asks. As much as it pains me, I will allow him to pet me and even, dare I say, hold me.

There is but one thing I am NOT when I'm downstairs. I am not Glogirly's cat. I will run when she calls. Give her the ears when she talks. I will not allow her to pet me, and certainly not EVER hold me. Oh but she tries...and I do love it when she tries.

Upstairs, I am Glogirly's cat.

When she heads up the stairs, I know there is a 98% chance she's going to bed and a 2% chance she's going to make the bed. Either way I'm a winner. When she's in bed, I'm in bed. Sometimes we even share a pillow. Sure, Gloman is often there, but I just ignore him.

I'm very strategic in my approach to human relationships. The whole Downstairs-Cat-Upstairs-Cat thing keeps me right where I want to be. And it keeps Glogirly and Gloman right where I want them.


  1. In my house, the upstairs is where the living room and my office are, and I am mostly an upstairs kitty! Downstairs is where my human's boyfriend's music and computer room is, and as often as not, the dog is down there. She is mostly a downstairs dog. And I like it that way.

  2. Katie this is a way to get extra attention by shifting attention depending on where you are. I would love to try stairs, but that would mean being outside as I occupy the 2nd floor of an apartment.

  3. There is only one floor here so we can't do that. You're pretty smart to control both floors like that.

  4. I become a differently behaved cat once 'the bed" is involved, too. If Mom goes upstairs, I am there in a flash. As you say, there is a 98% chance she is going to bed.

  5. You certainly are the mistress of your domain!!

  6. You are about as fickle as I am sweetie. I'm M's boy as long as she plays with me. When playtime is over, I'm all daddy's boy.

  7. I like a cat who's in control! Every human has their place >^,.^<

  8. I'm always an upstairs cat since we live on the 4th floor. Next stop: the roof. You get some great strategy as far as Glogirly and Gloman. You rule!
