Chicken in a basket

Cat on a lead.

There rests a very uneasy peace chez Twelfthknit en ce moment.....One of the problems is that if the other cats aren't threatening to tear her to shreds, Blue thinks she can just leap at them unannounced. Now, the logical part of my brain thinks 'Let then get on with it. One major hissy fit and the groundrules will be sorted out.' Unfortunately, the rest of me is too wimpy for that. So I reckon this may be a bit of a compromise (for me, I realise that!) Blue can have some periods of time near the older cats, but it won't be a free for all. AND it has another distinct advantage - I don't need to worry about her getting into somewhere troublesome if there's no-one to help get her out.

PS - can you see what she's reading? A bit advanced, our Blue...

Ah yes ! We tried the keeping them apart except when we were around route but it got too complicated. 3 days it came to a head and Smokey Jo received a swift cuff (no claws) to the head from Sweep. Funnily enough since then there has been much less hissing and spitting going on on both sides. I even caught them eating from the same dish this morning ! An uneasy truce has broken out .....

Blue is adorable, though! I'd probably be wimpy, too. :)

Is that the Observer she's reading - cat after my own heart!

What a little cutie!

We also have a Blue but she's a LOT bigger; 26" at the shoulder Airedale Terrier bigger in fact, but she'd love a little kitten, not sure if the kit would love her though......

We've got two elderly cats & the dogs love them but bark at other cats who dare to cross the garden.
