Unhappy Oja

 Spyro:  Mom thinks she will probably get permission to blog about the boycats on Monday, so for now I'm gonna call them Cool Dude and Hissy Boy.  Mom wanted to get a picture of me inspecting some of my handiwork in furniture redecorating, but Cool Dude did something to get my attention.  Wait a minute!  That's not all my handiwork.  Oja did at least half of it.

Karen Jo:  I know, but you started it.  Oja may not have helped if it hadn't been already worked on.

Spyro:  Hmmphf.  Cool Dude and I are almost friends now.  We play chase and hide-and-seek and smack-from-ambush.  Mom got out the cat-sized cardboard box and it makes a great fort for attack and defense.  Hissy Boy has stopped hissing at me altogether.  We gave each other a nose kiss this morning just after I woke Mom up for breakfast.  We also played attack the fort together, taking turns being in the fort.  I am going to love having these boycats around.
Oja:  Phooey!  I don't like having them around at all.  They sniff at my food bowls and use our litter boxes.  Why don't they use their own litter box?

Karen Jo:  I think they like your litter better.  They have this strange stuff in little pellets.

Oja:  Grump.  I guess I can't do anything about it.  Hissy Boy has stopped hissing at me until I hiss or growl at him first.  I am getting a little better about it all.  I will let them walk all around my chair or the couch and I won't hiss at them until they look at me.  I am on the couch because I just had a really nice session of Mom Time.  I love Mom Time.  I let one of those stinky boys get within inches of me before I hissed at him while Mom was petting me.  Mom thinks I am feeling more secure because I went to take my afternoon nap in the cat bed on the floor.

Karen Jo:  It is the first time you have spent any time on the floor since the boys arrived.  You are off your food a little bit.

Oja:  You are putting poison in it.

Karen Jo:  That's not poison, it's L-Lysine.  The boys are on it and your vet recommended it.  Remember that paste I used to put on your paw every day?

Oja:  And I sent flying everywhere, including the walls and drapes?  Yeah, I remember.

Karen Jo:  I'm putting it on your food now.  I figure it won't be long before every cat is into every other cat's food, so I want all the food to have the L-Lysine in it.  That way the boys will get their dose, no matter whose food they eat and it's good for  you, too.

Oja:  I guess I'll get used to it.

Spyro:  I don't much like it either, but I get too hungry to worry about it.  Speaking of which, isn't it past time that you gave us our dry food ration?  I'm starving.

Karen Jo:  You are right.  I'll finish posting this and get right to it.

Aww, well it's good that the boys are settling in!! hmm... maybe you need a couple more ladycats to balance everything out?

Taz knows what you are going through, Oja. We were down to just mommy and I and then she let the nephew person bring his two smelly boycats here to live...now I live in mommy's bedroom and they get the run of the house. They get too close when I'm using the ladies room, I whack them with my claws and they stay clear of me! Hold on, baby, better days are coming and you just might find out you like being the only lady cat in the house.

Aww, I hope everyone gets along better soon! I hope we get to see the new fosters soon too!

Eric and Flynn said...

Looks like you are out numbered by the boys Oja. Maybe they will spoil you as the only lady cat.

Brian said...

It will be okay Oja, the boys might just be fine, they are just a bit scared too.

ABBY said...

Don't worry Oja everything will work out well with those boys.

Fenris and Family said...

Wow we missed visiting for awhile and you were invaded by boycats. Oja as the only ladycat you either have it made cause the boycats will be vying for your attention or you are way outnumbered.

It sounds like a regular FOUR ring circus! We hope we can see photos soon.

I am looking forward to hearing more about these boys! Paws crossed that you get permission to post about them on Monday.

Angel and Kirby said...

We hope you can show the boys on Monday!

Sounds like you have your paws full with those boy cats, Oja!

The Lee County Clowder said...

We kinda know how that goes. Word gets out your bean likes kitties, and next thing you know, stray kitties are moving in from everywhere.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

It's great that everyone is getting along pretty nicely now. Hmmm...maybe it's time to rename Hissy Boy? ;)

Karen Jo, you can get Vetri-Science Lysine treats from an on-line retailer. I get mine for the boys from HealthyPets.com -- its sister company is EntirelyPets.com. I was giving the boys the powder from the capsules, but Derry didn't like the texture of it in his canned food and often wouldn't eat it. They've been getting the treats for a while now; I cut them up into small pieces, because the boys can't chew them as is. But both seem to like them and whereas last winter Derry's eye was constantly running, this year (so far), both eyes have been fine, i.e. no virus flare-up.

just try to have patience - i know it is easier said than done... I have no patience

Texas, a Cat in New York said...

Oja, with a little patience, maybe you can get furriends with the two new guys...
