Those Cats Have HISS-tory

| Related | March 21, 2017

(We have one extremely spoiled house cat and a family of yard cats. The friendliest of the yard cats would really be happier as a house cat, so we’ve been trying to bring him inside once or twice a day to get the current house cat used to him. We’ve also been jokingly trying to talk her into accepting him, which works about equally well.)

StepDad: “[House Cat], if [Yard Cat] came inside more, you could team up against the vacuum cleaner!”

(She is unimpressed with this idea. Later, the house cat is sitting in my favorite chair.)

Me: “[House Cat], if [Yard Cat] were inside, I’d feel sorry for you and wouldn’t move you.”

(She considers this, then hops out of my chair. Apparently it’s not worth it. Later…)

Mom: “Maybe someday they’ll be good friends.”

StepDad: “[House Cat] and [Yard Cat], sitting in a tree…”

Me: “H-I-S-S-I-N-G.”

(We’ve been at this for a month, and progressed to the point where she’ll stare at him for a second and not hiss before running away. Wish us luck.)
