Deceiving Sweetness

New Kitty. Soooooooo sweet!


Gray. Soooooooo sweet! Until…until…


…shrieks and howls shatter the silence of the evening, as sweetness is replaced by killers! 


Sound and fury….signifying nothing.

They love it.

And it’s almost always sweetpea New Kitty who attacks Gray. You can even see Gray’s submissive position. This is generous of her as she’s older, bigger, and was here first.

Years ago I had a small dog and a very large dog (standard poodle). The small one would always instigate the battles and the large one would always, instantly, assume the submissive position. It was comical watching the large dog lie, utterly helpless (seemingly) as the absurdly small dog attacked and attacked and attacked.

When the battle was over, small one would come bounding over to me, looking regal and proud.

The large one would saunter over to me with, I swear, a wink each time.

I’d wink right back.

    Ha! They are so cute together!
    New Kitty is hard to resist. 😊
    So glad they get along so well!
    Love seeing pics of them both.

    We have two girl cats who are siblings.

    Phoebe swats at Maggie every time she walks by. There are sideways looks and flat ears and growling and hissing.

    But come nighttime when the blanket is spread out on the sofa and I’m sitting there with a leg stretched, the two girls curl up together and groom each other.

    Sibling rivalry is laid to rest for one more night

    Gray & New kitty are so cute together. We had male & female cats (both gone now)they would howl & screech, I swore they were killing each other. They were both on their hind legs, front paws batting each other, when I got closer, they were barely touching each other. So funny.

    My two are the same! They are very similar in age (7 and 8) and one is big (16 lbs) and small (10 lbs) and it’s always the small one attacking. Lots of licking and grooming between attacks and bites though, so I know it’s all done with love, ha.
