A Day in the Life of Miss Aggie

My sweet shy Agatha - she likes to hang back and not be in the thick of the action that happens in the household.  Aggie gets along best with Zoey - the two of them spend a good amount of time together snoozing and bathing.  She gets along fine with Oliver but he insists on chasing her and generally aggravating her so they don't have much together time - they are true siblings who quibble.  She and Phoebe - well - hmmm - lets just say they are not at the top of each others lists of favorites.  They fight - lots.  Emma loves the Aggs but Aggie is intimidated by the exuberance of the dog.  Clooney wants to be friends - some days are better than others.  Nigel is pretty much indifferent.

A day for Aggie looks something like this -

Wait for the family to wake up and come downstairs.  She prefers to sleep where its quiet and she can be alone so she almost always sleeps on the loveseat in the living room curled up on her red fuzzy.
Once everyone is up she usually finds a place to observe from - she is the watcher of the family - rarely taking part in the chaos that is created with the other six critters.
Pets and treats for her along with the rest of the gang.
She does venture upstairs for visits during the day while I am working.  Some days she will even lay in my lap.
She is shy about playing with toys in front of anyone - but I know she does play because stuff is in a different spot and everyone else is upstairs with me.
She comes upstairs to hang out with us in the evenings and visits us before bed coming up for some pets.
Then back downstairs to her fuzzy.

She is a very low maintenance cat - independent and at times a bit aloof.  We love you Aggie.....
