mr mcgregor has only just started to venture out form behind the
armchair inthe front room, occasionally gonig into the back room to be
hissed at by terri who has decided that it si her domain, then crawl
back behind a chair again.
this evening I found him at one end of the long back room sitting
under the dining table, with terri at the other end, just sat in the
litter tray, both of them staring at each other. I knew what she was
up to, she was so obviously 'guarding it' to prevent him form using it
(naughty little madam) in a kind of psychological bullying tactic, so
i picked her up out of it and dumped her in a her bed in the front
room so she could watch big brother with us and let Mr McG use the
tray, which he promptly did as soon as she was hauled out of it. What
a cheeky little girl eh? I never thought she had it in her to hiss at
anythign or bully another cat as she has been so submissive to jessie,
but she has hissed at Mr McG and guarded the litter tray, such a
it is obvious that the pecking order in now; jessie at the top, terri
in the middle, and Mr McG at the bottom (poor boy). i have got in a
feliway diffuser inthe backroom so hopefully that will have an effect
in a week or 2.
Terri and Mr McG are asleep inthe front room now, him on a big squishy
cushion on the floor, her in her round doughnut bed on an armchair.
Jessie is still staying upstairs in her 'penthouse'. though i doubt
they will ever all start snuggling up together, it woudl be nice if
they all got on a bit better to some extent, and hopefully the
diffuser will help matters.
I wil try to get some pictures soon, be warned though; he is a big
boy, built for comfort and not for speed.
