It was a funny and cute story, BrittyBear. Thank you for sharing it!
I'm with you in recognizing jealousy in your kitty. They DO get jealous. Jealousy isn't exclusive to humans.
Jealousy is an emotion, and the word typically refers to the negative thoughts and feelings of insecurity, fear, and anxiety over an anticipated loss of something and we all know that cats are capable of every single one of these feelings.
They are territorial (possessive) and will fight to keep what they feel is theirs and if they feel a loss of control, anxiety and insecurity.
How it manifests itself in the cat's reactions may not be the same as humans but they do feel jealousy, all the same.
Thanks again for sharing your story
