Anyone who knows cats, knows that everything belongs to them. It’s something we humans simply have to accept.
I love that they mark the things that are special, or important, to them.
The cat in the picture is marking her dog. Wherever the dog goes, all the other cats will know he is Mitzi’s dog. It’s a nice, simple, way to let others know he’s taken. They do that to us too, of course. Emmie marks me every time she sees me. I belong to her. I’m okay with that. In fact, I wouldn’t want it any other way.
