Caturday

I am in the kitchen, waiting to be fed.

Emma:  I am in the living room. playing.

Mom really meant to take part in House of Horrors week, but then she started feeling bad again with her allergies and didn't get any of it done.  We have been going along as usual, except for the time I jumped Emma when Mom was playing with her.

Karen Jo:  What was up with that, anyway?  I was flying Da Bird for Emma and I was flying it over your head, too.  You could have joined in at any time.  Instead, you suddenly pounced on Emma, pummeled her a bit, then left.  Emma let out a high-pitched eeeee! but didn't really yell for help.  I couldn't tell if you were playing or being a bit mean.  I think you were being a bit mean.

I got a bit jealous of all the attention you were giving Emma, so I stopped the game.  I let you play with her tonight.

Karen Jo:  It was a one time thing, but the next time I flew Da Bird for Emma, she kept looking to see if you were watching.  When she spotted you, she stopped playing.  Luckily, she seems to have forgotten all about it now.

I am just playing with her now.  I grabbed her when she was running down the hall, but didn't hit her.  She just turned around and ran the other way.

Emma:  That didn't scare me.  I knew you were just playing.  I think it's fun when you chase me.  I think it's great that Mom keeps the toy baskets on the floor.  I am picking out my own toys to play with now.  Mom saw me pull out a soft ball and chase it all over the living room.

Karen Jo:  I love to see you playing with the toys.  What's really wonderful is that you like the feather toys that Herman shows no interest in at all.  Now all the toys are getting played with by somecat.

I am not playing much with the toys.  I would rather play with Emma.  We are still working out what's fun for us.  I love hiding and waiting for her to come by so I can jump out at her.  We are both on the bed with Mom most nights and mornings now.  Mom has fun getting into a position where she can pay attention to both of us at the same time.

We are so thrilled that you two are getting along so good! We think that a few spats here and there are normal. I, Zoe, just love to chase and stalk Fuzzy. It's the most fun when she chases back, but a lot of times she just turns and hisses at me, and sometimes she smacks me! We're also glad you both like toys!!!! We're sorry your mom has been sick, though. Allergies here are really bad, too, between the pollen, fires (from farmers burning their fields), and the wind. Achoo!

It takes a while to train someone to be a two-cat human, doesn't it? But it sounds like you both are getting her settled in.

Herman, I hope you, Emma and mom have a very Happy Easter. You two are very smart cats!

We are delighted that you get on so well - but we all have little spats at times. Sometimes we have a wrassling match too but if mum thinks it's getting too rough she says enough and we stop (until her back is turned!)
We are delighted that you enjoy playing with each other - it makes playing chase and things so much fun.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Life is so good with a playmate! We chuckled at you two dividing up your Mom at bedtime. Our Mommy needs four arms sometimes. We think it's mean she doesn't grow some extras!

Looks like every cat has their own space, getting along is good.

Athena said...

It sounds like you are starting to get along pretty well! That's great! It's normal to have a spat now and then. My brofur gave me a big thwack this morning and then we wrassled. It's all in good fun though. Happy Easter!

The Island Cats said...

Sounds like you two are working things out and learning what you like and don't like. But it's much better having a friend to play with!

Tristan and Crikey said...

It's better just to keep the peace and get along!
Thank you so much for your love and concern for Tristan during her time of illness and blindness. It means everything to us, furriends:)

Isn't playing together fun? We are so glad you two are enjoying each other so much! :)

It is great to have a playmate but, yes, it does take some time to work everything out.
Thanks for participating in WCB. Hope to see you again soon.
Feel better 'Mom'.
