Many of you asked how the resident cats were doing with a new kitten in the house.
Cupcake has a serious case of hero worship with all of the big kitties and wants to be near them, but she is respectful when they tell her to back off. The only times things can get tense is when she surprises them at close range.
This happened over the weekend with Ashton, and I happened to have my cell phone to catch some grainy photos of the encounter.
Ashton got suspicious that someone was behind her, but she was patient about it at first.
Knowing that Cupcake was on the move behind her was stressful, though.
When Cupcake tried to walk too close to her, it was too much for Ashton.
Cupcake was fine after Ashton gave her a whack for coming too close, but she kept more of a distance afterward, which is exactly the message Ashton was trying to get across to her.
Everyone is learning new boundaries with each other, but they’re all getting extra treats and attention in the process, so that part of it suits them all fine.
