Meet Holly. You haven’t seen much of her, but this is Holly. She’s a cat like I’ve never seen before.

We got Holly with her sister, Noel, at the shelter.

Noel is no longer with us. May she rest in peace.

Anyway, Holly does something I’ve never seen a cat do. When we first got her we loved that she was cuddly and that she was willing to sit on our laps and to be pet. She’s also a great mouser and has even gotten a few red squirrels (along with tons of mice, birds, and so on).

It took awhile before we realized that she was tormenting our other cat, Duchess. This happens mostly in the winter when it’s too cold for Holly to go mousing.

We eventually figured out that the whole “let me sit on your lap and love you” thing wasn’t about sitting on our laps and being petted, but was, in fact, about putting her scent on us.

She gets on any person who walks in the house almost immediately after they’ve entered and sat down.


She claims them and then walks off, leaving Duchess to ignore everyone because they smell like Holly, the cat who torments her.

Yes, this is Holly – my sweet, sultry, scheming cat.

    Such a pretty girl! I think black cats are the best. I’ve always had stray black cats come out of nowhere and distract me any time I have had a hard time in life. At least she *pretends* to love you. Poor Duchess!
