she'll break through your catflap at night,
and kill your own cats!
so this is the story of how the two cats
managed their first week together
Teego spent his first three days in a separate room
with Freya sniffing at the door
he's a confident kitten
and unusually had no fears about exploring
outside his room
he looks around this new area
and bounds down to explore further
Freya is watching from a safe place
and is NOT impressed!
However, she shows no desire to leap down
and attack this intruder!
but won't take her eyes off him
Teego barely notices this as there are
far too many shiny things around for him to be bothered!
their first face-to-face meeting goes very well
Teego's playful bounce over
gives no hint that he
could possibly be a threat
Freya's still the boss, so she hisses,
just to make her point
Teego carries on exploring
apparently unworried by Freya's hissing and growling
after a while,
Teego pops back upstairs
just to double-check his safe place is still there
Teego's boisterousness is always present
and slippery floors can be awkward
Fortunately, all of Freya's signals and body language
are more nervous curiosity
rather than anything aggressive
she doesn't want to be friends just now
but she's certainly interested and curious
as she'd simply leave the room if she really didn't like it
as youngsters do, he's always pushing his luck
he doesn't mean any harm
he's just overwhelmed by all the fun things to do down here
for a moment
he even forgets about Freya
Freya however, is still fascinated
the following day
Freya is still trying to teach him who's boss
when he strays too close without paying attention
naturally Teego takes this is an invitation
after a couple of days of this
we're starting to think that Freya might
be enjoying this little brat a tiny bit
but she still wanders around grizzling
so nobody thinks she's gone soft
the next day shows further improvement
but Freya's not going to give in THAT easily!
Teego seems obsessed by Freya's tail
which will probably end up teaching him a lesson
about curiosity, and cats.
both cats are now really showing signs of play
the fights are mainly friendly
but freya forgets her own strength every now and then
sometimes, little kittens just don't get the hint
that playtime is not always wanted
little Teego can't seem to understand
how she doesn't want to wrestle ALL the time!
maybe a game of Queen of the castle will solve the problem?
another day passes, and even Freya is initiating play fights now!
As the days pass
the fights become more playful
and soon, even Freya realises that having a baby brother
could be the best thing in the world
