Here's the story on how the cats are getting along in our home.
Lily at 18 doesn't give two hoots about the newbies, Joe and Rae-Rae. She barely notices them.
Sierra hates them both.
Annie loathes Joe and tolerates Rae-Rae.
Audrey is terrified of Joe and hates Rae-Rae.
Joe tries to be the dominant by stomping around like John Wayne but he is actually, deep down, a coward.
He tried to make friends at the very start of their arrival but my cats would have nothing of it.
Now he likes stomping and scaring all the women. BUT...if Sierra gets mad at him he runs like a girl.
Rae-Rae stays upstairs all day and lies in the sun or on a bed. She will hiss at any cat that enters the room but that's it. She never makes a move for them. In the evening, she does her walk-about downstairs but hisses at any cat that comes near her except for her darling Joe.
Joe is bored with Rae-Rae and prefers stirring up trouble with the others.
Joe secretly has a crush on Annie but knows that she will pulverize him if he touches her.
All this but no blood shed so I'm happy.
Kane thinks they are all nuts and always has.
Well, I'm off to kitty-sit. I snapped this photo of one of my very co-operative kitty-clients.
He's such a handsome boy.
And I have my first basket of fresh strawberries just picked this morning to create a strawberry short-cake for dinner. Don't you just love summer!
