Nosey's okay with other cats, but he's not a cuddler. He's not into snuggling with the other cats. He doesn't snuggle w/us, either. He likes to be near us, sometimes quite near, but won't go so far as to actually touch up against us. So it was quite unusual to find Nosey and Smudge sharing such close quarters on the chair the other day.
Nosey must have been there first and Smudge joined him. I can't see Nosey joining Smudge, i.e., purposefully placing himself in such close proximity to someone else. Do we have physical contact? Let's go to the overhead cam.
Inconclusive. We need to go a close up and yes, we have contact!
