An hour and a half ago, when I came home, my cats were at it. Within 15 minutes of my return, they had a fur flying fight! After the fight, they backed away from each other, one under a chair, one under the couch, and proceeded to growl and howl at each other.
Now this has been going on for well over a year, and my patience has worn dangerously thin. The sounds they make are worse than chalk on a chalkboard (which doesn't bother me, so it's not real apt, but you know), and I just can't get them over it! So today, I squirted Fenix, who was being the most demonstrative, right in the face. Over and over again...every time he started the growling. Finally, he stopped. His face soaking wet. So what does he do? He comes out from under the chair, cleans the water off his face (amazing ability, this) and then pads over for some lovin from me as if nothing just freaking happened.
Ten minutes after that, he joined Cougar on their tree and CUDDLED WITH HIM. THEY ARE STILL SLEEPING TOGETHER, LIKE A PAIR OF LOVERS AND IT'S FREAKING ME OUT BECAUSE THIS GOES ON VIRTUALLY EVERY FREAKING DAY AND THEY'RE LIKELY TO HAVE ANOTHER SCREAMING/SLASHING FIGHT BEFORE MORNING.
If this sounds like a pathetic scream for help, it is.
