Friday Fracas!

Kitties!

Our new Cat Tree came!   
You guys suggested we get one to add more vertical space and help May Ling and Sweet Pea get along and not pee/spray inappropriately. 
While Felix was checking out the upper perches, Maui strolled up to try out the lower house. 
Salem hopped up for a preliminary assessment, too.
Maui left, and everything was copacetic... 
...until Sylvester arrived.
Sylvester and Felix do not get along.  They "play" the Creeping Game, following each other around, stalking, and weirding each other out. 
Most of the time it's pretty tame. 
But not this time! 
They took the argument out to the catio...
...where things got out of hand and they actually FOUGHT!
There was fur flying and lots and LOTS of Cat Swearing.
Mommy had to squirt them with the Dreaded Water Bottle to break it up and they got time outs in separate rooms.  Daddy calmed them down and checked 'em out...neither one appears to be hurt.

But somecat sprayed the new Cat Tree last night!

*sigh*

It's always something.  
At least Sweet Pea and May Ling's antipathy has simmered down, the medicine has helped Sweet Pea's anxiety so May Ling is happier too.   (Mommy says Thank Cod for pill pockets!)  The three new boxes are getting lots of use, and we're all enjoying the extra play time.  So three paws forward and one paw back...
It's a good thing Mommy and Daddy love us, or it would be the sausage factory for sure--or so they say.
Scouty says more like the Stew Pot.

Happy Friday!

  5. New cat trees can make kitties crazy - it happened at our house when my human got us our cat tree for Christmas many years ago. Binga tried to claim it as hers and hers alone and chased everyone away from it! My human had to lock her up so I could put my scent on it... after which she calmed down.

  6. well ... hitting the tree is a little better than the wall or carpet, right?

  7. That is one pawsome cat tree. The mom loves cats, but some of our behavior just drives her crazypants. Peeing & fighting top the list! Julie & Mica Moo do the same thing as Felix & Sylvester. She calls it "picking at the scab". Things will never heal between them because they just keep picking at the scab! We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  9. We haz that same tree! Your cats are small mom Trish! Ms. Jenga barely fits in those top 'beds'. I think the fighting & marking on the tree is only to be expected when something new comes into the territory. There's all that sorting out of who's it is, who gets to use it and when, etc. AND who gets to be 'Top Cat'. They will work it out things should return to norman. MOL!

  11. Wow, that is one fancy tree folks. Purrs for peace between Sweet Pea and May Ling.

  12. We stalk each other and weird each other out too. IN fact, we did that this evening right after the people went to bed, puffed tails and all. Now Mum is awake again.

    We want her to get us a tree JUST LIKE YOURS!

  13. That tree is something! Austin wants one. I told him that for one cat that was ridiculous and anyway he has the bookcase!

    Tell Sylvester and Felix that cat sausages are very tasty!!!

  14. That is a totally awesome new cat tree!!!

    Naughty Sylvester and Felix!

    You're right. You have GREAT parents and it sounds like they have done A LOT to make things even better for you, so time to say thank you. No fighting!!!

    Purrs,

  19. I love the new cat tree. As for the cat behavior - the little hooligans! Ya just have to love them.

  20. We're glad to hear that Sweet Pea is feeling a bit better on her meds. You kitties have brilliant parents, you are very lucky.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That kitty tree is seriously awesome. We're envious of all the great deals (and decent shipping charges) you have in the States.

    With so many kitties, we can't imagine everyone will be calm, and we're sorry the new cat tree got sprayed. Ugh. But at least Sweet Pea is going well--that's something.

    Purrs and kitty kisses to you all!

  22. I love that new cat tree. I think the boys should have one. It would go with their eyes.

    Have a great day.

    pawhugs, Max

  23. I hope the calm pays you a visit very soon.

  24. Excellent tree - maybe if we peed more she'd buy us one. OOps- maybe not a good idea as there's too much peemailing already. And the wooden floors are suffering....... Äiti dosen't know what to do.
    We hope the fighting didn't recur - it's great to play and have fun but there's a point where it gets serious. ANd that's not fun.

    ReplyDelete
  25. How disheartening it must have been to find the tree got sprayed in the night. We wish you could hit upon the answer to that, you've tried so much already. Glad the meds are helping anyway.
    Felix & Sylvester! You naughty boys! You got what you deserved with that time out and lets not have any more catfights now, ya hear?!

  26. When I defuzz the cat towers at the no- kill shelter, I spray them down with a fine mist of Nature's Miracle. It helps nip the spraying routine. My assigned building is a Feline AIDS building--all males except one lonely female!

  27. What an awesome new cat tree! Too bad it's already been sprayed. This is definitely a territorial issue.

    Have you thought of using calming collars? They really work.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's me again! I forgot to mention that your stacked kitties are on the LOLSpot, doing what they do best.

  29. Fur flying cat fight is the name of my new hip hop band.

  30. That all sounds a lot like our house. That new cat tree is really something. We like that one. You boys need to quit the fighting. But it happens. It happens way too often around here. We have Lucky on that composure and it seems to be working for him. He is less aggressive.
    Take care.

  31. What an PAWSOME cat tree! Hey Felix and Sylvester, CHILL OUT! There's plenty of tree for all of you! As for the pee, SIGH. Poor Mom.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh noes! That's such a pawesome new cat tree but it doesn't need to be fertilized doods! We hope Sylvester and Felix got that bad fighting out of their system and don't do it again. We're glad that Sweet Pea and May Ling are doing better and that everykitty is using the new boxes. Paws crossed the spraying stops!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That is a really awesome new cat condo. It looks like everyone was having a good time on it. I suppose it's only to be expected that in a house with that many felines, there will be tussles now and then. Actual fighting would be scary though. I'm glad no one got hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  34. WOW, that is a pawsome cat tree! And despite our blessings, it is always something.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is a very cool cat tree. You felines are not unlike us goats except you don't have horns

  36. to quote Daisy, Rats! We hope the new situation will calm down when the tree novelty wears off. That is one cool cat tree!

  37. You've got great cat tree! I love the color. Sounds like Sylvester and Felix had a big fight. Sometimes my boys fight and I see fur flying, too. I have to break the fight. Glad they were not hurt.
    It's already been sprayed...but I hope everyone will enjoy the new cat tree :-)

  38. That is a cool new tree! I love the blue. Too bad it's already been sprayed, but I hope things will calm down soon!

  49. Funny how some of the kitties immediately took a seat on the new deluxe cat tree. They seemed to really like it. Sorry 'bout the fight and the defacing.

  54. Oh man, we know the feeling. Every time we think we're making a little progress with Wally and Zoey, something happens that throws a monkey wrench in the works.

    We love the new cat tree!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. We know how it is...seems there's always something happening here...usually with Figaro or Ginger in the middle of it! Us girls and Nigel just want peace and quiet!

    ReplyDelete
  58. What a gorgeous house!!!
    Your Mom will be able to collect lots of furs by brushing the house. Maybe she'll make herself a scarf with the knitting needles.
