OK, I'd like to know how the cats do it.
How do they decide whose turn it is to sleep on the bed at night? How do they know who guards the front window, and who goes out at 5:30 a.m. to patrol the property? How do they determine who gets to sleep on the bathmat at night, and who gets to wake me up in the morning?
There has got to be some kind of schedule, because they trade off. The tasks get done, but it's not always the same cat doing it.
