The new (but old) chair

We have recently welcomed a beautiful LaFave family heirloom into our living room. The chair, pictured above, is now in the 4th generation of the family, dates back to the 1890's and has now become a favorite perch for Bertie. Those of you concerned with a cat on an antique, he is very nice to it, and we de-fur it every day, just in case. We were very excited and honored to get the chair, and were also incredibly surprised with how well it fit into our living room.

Also, for anyone wanting more information on the cats' budding "friendship," here's a picture that might wow you. Only a few months ago, neither one of them would have willing sat this close to the other one, and would certainly never have closed their eyes in each other's presence. They both knew the other one was next to them before falling into naptime, and we were so impressed with how far they've come, that we snapped a picture. It's now one of their favorite ways to nap, and we often come home from school to find Lyra on her perch and Bert on the floor, both soaking in the sun.

The chair fits your house perfectly! I'd forgotten how pretty it is. Looks like Bertie has found his ideal spot.

And who would have thought that the two kitties would become such pals? But will Bertie ever let Lyra share his new chair?

Your cats are so cute. I think this is the first time I've seen them. I love the chair. In Utah, I had a lot of family antiques in my living room. Unfortunately, when I moved, they stayed in Utah. Here's a morbid thought for ya, if one of them dies, I hope I get their furniture.
