Photo: Portrait with paper towels

If a cat is near it, it belongs to the cat.

If a cat can get to it, it belongs to the cat.

If a cat can fit on it, it belongs to the cat.

Dawn, Portrait with Paper Towels

I can get my paper towels elsewhere.

Do your cats (or dogs or other pets) claim ownership of places around your home or yard? A shelf? A couch? A particular corner of the living room? Do you acknowledge it? (That’s “Dawn’s shelf.”) Or encourage it? (Putting a blanket on the couch where the dog usually sleeps.)

We’re participating in the Black and White Sunday Blog Hop. Visit the blogs below for more creative photography…

    Well, I laid down a blanket on the back of the couch and thats Mikko’s favorite place to nap, and if I try to move it and he sees….Then he will growl…LOL! And he claims everything thats on the floor, and when I try to pick up a straw that he wasn’t playing with, then he will charge and me and climb up my leg. It doesn’t always hurt, but it hurts sometimes. So I just leave it.

    Toby owns the guest room bed. We finally gave up and put a sleeping bag over the bedspread.

    So, Dawn, you don’t shred those paper towels?! Amelia would not allow those lazy paper towels to just hang there like that! Any paper rolls without teeth and claw marks is unacceptable!

    Cute picture! Petal sort of has a claim on the corner of one of the couches. She knows that all she has to so is look at me and I’ll scoot over for her, I’d rather snuggle with her than sit in the corner. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. YES, Sugar got a special spot on the kitchen, overlooking her banana basket. I bet you always get cat fur on your paper towel. Happy Black n White Sunday. Golden Woofs

  8. Any seat that Cody chooses is his….Dakota isn’t as territorial as Cody is!

    LOL! SO VERY true!
    My cat Nick owned the whole house. What a great cat perch. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Onyxx claims under the couch. Mr. N likes my lap and laundry.

  11. We like to claim mommy’s computer!! Especially when she’s trying to type on it…
