All: Of course we did. We all belong to the club.
Karen Jo: One of you decided that Derby had a good one by yacking on the carpet and staining it. I found two yak spots by the computer desk with Stinky Goodness and kibble in them. Now who eats in the computer room and gobbles as much Stinky Goodness as he can hold?
Bambino: Why are you looking at me? I have never yakked up anything. Horus and Oja are the yakkers around here. Oja eats in the computer room and she's so . . . (Oja glares at Bambino) er, floofy that it was probably her.
Karen Jo: Oh, poor you. I have seen you going around and checking every dish to see if there was any Stinky Goodness left and if there is you clean it up. I guess the yak will remain a mystery.
Karen Jo: Thanks to all of you for your responses to my post "Who's the Alpha?" I am glad to know that there doesn't have to be an alpha cat and I will stop trying to figure it out. I think I have figured out a little bit about Rocio's behavior. The other morning Horus was annoying Rocio something awful. I put a stop to it, but a few hours later Rocio started annoying Oja. That one wasn't too bad, so I just told Rocio to knock it off and he eventually did. A couple of hours after that, Oja and Rocio were giving each other nose kisses. There was a blissful period of about 10 days when no cat was annoying any other cat, so I do think that Rocio has stopped annoying Oja just on his own. He only does it now when Horus has been picking on him. Why Horus picks on Rocio I don't know, unless it's some kind of status thing. Oja is becoming more tolerant of Bambino. She even licked the very end of his tail when they were both in bed with me. Maybe all my cats will be friends with each other eventually.
