When it comes to cat behavior, it’s about watching the clock. Cats are very much about favorite locations, and in multi-cat households it can be tricky to keep their schedule intact.
Cats like to stick to a schedule, spending a certain number of hours in a given spot before moving on to the next location. If you’ve ever noticed one cat chasing another from a given spot, it’s a feline way of saying “it’s my turn now”.
Problems arise when there either aren’t enough prime locations for each cat to have a favorite spot, or one cat decides to challenge the other for prime ownership of a given location.
