  1. Oh the drama! Cant you just feel the tension in the air?

  2. Oh, no. Two cats in the same house who can't stand each other! Do they get to go outside? My cats fight before they settle down to sleep together. I consider it brotherly love.
    I love the tail photo.
    Here's My Saturday Snapshot

  3. What cuties! Why do they keep their distance?

    *grin*

  6. Trish, Paulita and Jill,

    Yes things can be tense at times. Most days are pretty good -- they just stay away from each other, but Freckles (8), the orange and white cat likes to get close to Libby(14)and she won't allow it. She is the alpha cat who use to be a hunter.

    None of our cats go out anymore since we moved 3 years ago. We had lost (3) cats to outside elements in a 6 year period.

    We actually have (4) cats and for the most part they just each to their own thing. Our other 2 our lap cats, and that gets interesting when I try to use my laptop..LOL

  7. Ohh, that must be interesting. Both alphas, I'd imagine.

  8. Hi!
    The tail shot is cute! They look a little frustrated. Have a great day!

  9. Two cats and a laptop - need an extra big lap for all that! :) I like the Chinese standoff between the two, so threatening.

  10. Great story Diane. Love the photo with the two tails. I'm sure it's interesting in the house with 4 cats, at times.

    Our old dog didn't want anything to do with the puppy and never warmed up to her. Odd, I just thought cats and dogs would learn to be friends. Not sure why I thought that.

  11. Not the best of friends, huh? They are both very cute!

  12. I can almost feel the "steam" coming off of them. Cats can be so dramatic in their staring, and their body language is often so intense.

    I love it!

    That takes me back to when we had cats in my foothills house. Sadly, we lost some to coyotes...so my last cat stayed indoors. She did some damage to the sheers on the windows...

    Thanks for the dramatic pix and story.

  13. Great pics, and close is good, even if fur a while!

  14. My cat Fiona hates her two brothers, but every once in awhile I will come across her sleeping curled up with one or both of them!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Libby does look serious about keeping her distance. I love the way they all have such distinct personalities.

  16. That fluffed out tail tells me all is not as serene as we might think. And I love the staring contest!

  17. Those are great! My cats don't like each other much either. The only time the male cat comes close to the female is to lick her head and she hates it. It's always the prelude to a big fight. (They're both fixed, so thank goodness we don't have to worry about anything else.) :)

  18. I can relate to this picture. I have two cats who can't seem to stay away from each other but there is no love between them. I love the tail shot. It says it all!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Looks like war could break out any minute! Those expressions on their faces are priceless.

  20. Do they tolerate each other or do they get into scuffles? It took years for my two cats to sit nicely side by side. They never did cuddle up together.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Both are beautiful! I've never seen any cats that don't like each other. My daughter has lots of cats and they are all BF's.

  22. Cats really are their own persons and you really know when they dislike something.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love the kitties. We have five at our house. They all have issues.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Those are two stinking funny! I love how we both picked our animals today!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nise,

    They never really have "cat fights" BUT Libby growls and gives him a left punch with her paw if he gets too close....LOL

    ReplyDelete
  26. That is too funny and I love that the photos tell the story so well

    ReplyDelete
  27. Uh oh they do not get along not good. My little one knocked her brother off his scratch pad the other night. I had to put the scratch pads in front of me so there would be no bickering.

    Thank you for your warm thoughts.

  28. Detente? I like the pic of the stripey cat-tails.
    :)

  29. stare fest... hmmm I hope it winds up peaceful :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. That is just hilarious how they are sitting and staring at each other. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Your cats are adorable, Diane! The tail phot is wonderful (such a pretty background, too)

    I have cats who do the stare-down thing, too. It always amazes me how much cats who live in the same home can dislike each other.

    ReplyDelete
  32. They are beautiful, even if they do not really get along.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Too funny! What is causing this "detente"? : )

    ReplyDelete
  34. They just don't like one another. Libby, 14 has always been a loner and actually the only one she'll let near her is Lily the other female. She really dislikes the boys. Not sure who blinked first that time...LOL

    The cause usually is Freckles or Buddy (the other male) getting too close to her..

  35. I love these photos, especially the tail shot. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. They have that, "Bring it on!" look, don't they? Cats have perfected the pissy look.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Too funny -- loved the almost touching tails!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Flippin hilarious - love the stare-fest. I can almost see the words, "Oh, it's on!" in that look!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow! I was so surprised to hear that you have cats who don't get along. I've been mulling over a blog post on just that subject. Mine are so bad that one of them has a separate room all to herself!
