A Spat

Scarlett and Melly's relationship has improved immensely since Melly's turbulent arrival a year and a half ago, but they regress periodically and have very physical fights punctuated by growling and hissing. Melly is usually the instigator, but Scarlett is so sensitive that it doesn't take much.

Here, Melly decided she wanted to be on the window sill, which resulted in Scarlett growling loudly. Eventually Melly decided that the cat tree was perfectly fine.

Since these two eat out of one dish together, hunt spiders together, and slurp bathtub drips together, I'm not too worried about the fighting.

Just a passing cat-spat I'm sure :-)

that is far too adorable. 9 and Chani have issues too. They were fostered together, so they didn't have issues adjusting. But! 9 often wants to play when Chani just wants to be left alone. Ah well...

I've lived here nearly 9 years and Binga and I still get into spats. We had one just a few minutes, ago in fact! Today's Wordless Wednesday does not tell the whole story!

our boys do their share of playfighting. And yeah, they share a litterbox/water bowl/food bowl.

The pecking order is clear- the younger boy is really dumb and clearly the bottom in the relationship, though he starts the majority of the playfights.

They settle it and it's over.
Wish hooman fights were like this!
