Cat Adventures

Kitty is now finally used to the fact that there are other cats in the house. She's not getting alarmed when she hears other "meows" and other cat sounds. I'm still keeping her separate from Tigger and Ziggy though, just because there are occasional yowling matches and the odd scrap here and there.

The other day I thought I'd risk it by having both Kitty and Tigger (the two contenders for dominant female) out and about. Tigger lay down about 20 feet from Kitty and was watching her. Kitty did the same. They both were being petted and were purring. Kitty relaxed finally and was walking around me getting some attention, and Tigger decided to go downstairs. Well, as soon as Tigger's eyes were averted, Kitty (who had apparently just been trying to be all sneaky), abandoned me and raced over to Tigger, leaped over her head and smacked her on the head while she was overtop. Tigger, of course, was outraged. Now she's looking for a fight and I have to keep them seprated again. What's interesting is that these two cats are fighting without using their claws... it's just open-pawed slaps so far. Weird eh?

Oh those kitties... so entertaining!

Shall we take bids on the outcome of Tigger vs. Kitty match ;)
Hope all is well with you!

Hehe, I'm honestly not sure who would win! Tigger is the more aggressive, but Kitty fights dirty :P

as you may or may not know, animals (even humans) show dominance by beating another into submission, not by killing the other, that's why they aren't using their claws, it's not that they don't like eachother, but they don't like the other coming in on "their" territory

Maiming is usually involved in these fights though, so it's really quite surprising there haven't been any claws. Yet.

Have you considered just letting them battle it out (no claws shouldn't be so bad) and letting them figure out for themselves who is top cat?

Our Tiggy is so small and French and rebellious and he keeps stupidly trying to be the biggest cat.
Between the the two peeing kitties and the three fighting ones it's all very amusing for Girly Boy and I to watch.

Kitties kick televisions ASS!!!!!!!111

I've thought about it, but what happens is Tigger corners Kitty, and I'm genuinely afraid of what will happen if Tigger chooses to advance on a cornered Kitty. I will keep this in mind though, but it's starting to look like Tigger's winning. Maybe.

There are some great links there! Even though this isn't a cat link, I fell in love with this one :P
