Before Alice and Dorothy, we have never had cats who enjoy and seek out the company of other cats. Their partners of choice are each other ... this isn't a surprise since they are littermates, and they have never been apart. I have also seen one or the other of them cuddle up with Maggie, and Maggie tends to put up with it, but she doesn't like it at all.
This is a not-so-great photo of a scene from earlier this morning ...
Dorothy was washing Alice's face. A few minutes later, Alice was washing Dorothy's ears (no photo of this). Sometimes this type of situation ends with a biting, hissing wrestling match. This morning, they finished their baths and are now sleeping side by side.
Hard to comprehend that it has been four years since we brought these little striped balls of fur here to their forever home. Adopting sister kitties is one of the best things that we have ever done!
