Angel: I told Mom she needed to remember that Illyana is A GrandKitten. She is not our sister! She is going to live with Shadow, Ivan and Jake! I have to keep telling her that!
Kirby: I got to meet her yesterday! She is a tiny little thing but she is a spitfire! She charged me and swatted at me. She might have even hissed at me. I tried to play, but she kept running away! We play slap paws under the door!
I went in the carrier to see what else was in it. Then when I was walking around it, she went in to see what I had done! Mom did not let me stay long.
Angel: I had no interest in going in! Mom took me in. I had to tell that little visitor that she was a visitor and not home for good! I growled, a lot. I hissed, a lot. I bowed up in the middle and floofed my tail. She bowed up and jumped at me. Mom removed me from the room. She did not even get any pictures!
Mom: Illyanna is going home to Shadow ans Ivan. I just have not had time to make the three hour track. She craves human contact. The shelter said she was shy and she was at first. I went into her room about every hour and spent time with her. By the second visit, she came out to meet me. Now she gets in my lap. As soon as you touch her, that purr motor starts running.
We put a toy in the room that has a fake mouse that swings around a track and she will reach in the 'holes' had play with the mouse. She loves it more than any of my cats ever did.
Angel and Kirby started in at bed time and it did not appear to be play. Angel was growling ans set to pounce Kirby. He was not making any sound, but they were locked in what looked like mortal combat. There is not a lot you can do to deter it. We finally had to make Kirby sleep in another room. It gets scary when the get this way. If this had just started with a new kitten in the house I might understand it. But this has been going on for a couple of weeks. Any suggestions?
There will be more pictures tomorrow.
