I went into the bedroom and the next thing Ganzi let out a wail like I
just stood on his tail then hugged my leg with claws out so I let out
a wail as well

Bonnie decided to attack Ganzi at the point. Full on ears flat,
growling and Ganzi had to retreat to the top of¬* my bedside locker and
Bonnie still wanted to kill him

5 minutes later they're curled up in the hallway washing each other

It's a cat thing

I've never had more than one cat at a time.¬* I can tell you, both Persia
(RB) and Buffy *yowl* if they even catch sight of another cat.¬* It's a
horrific sound.¬* You'd think banshees were after them!


I've always had two at a time except for intervals between the time one
died and I found another. The degree to which they get on varies, but
I've never encountered rivalry like that between Cinnamon and Kerry.
They've settled down enough so that they will be in the same room
together - if I'm there. If I'm not, Cinnamon rules the bedroom and
Kerry the living area, with the litter boxes in the oversized closet in
between described in the ad for the place as a second bedroom. And
during all those months and months of initial drama, I couldn't bring
myself to get rid of either of them - poor Cinnamon, an elderly cat
who's been with me for years or Kerry, a skinny little thing I suppose I
could have returned to the shelter, but I got attached, you know how it
is, and the shelter has lots of cats, often more than they can find
homes for. And eventually they more or less settled down, but they don't
curl up together or groom each other.

Cali had a real thing about cats trespassing on her territory, even though she was not allowed out. Somehow she always knew that they were out there; one neighbourhood Tom loved to taunt her. She would not only hiss and growl at them, but she would caterwaul at them. I swear this sound came all the way from her toes. One day she did this at the front door because there was a Tom outside; the other cats go so freaked out by this noise that they attacked each other. Cali could also swell to twice her size because of her thick course hair. One day she even scared the crap out of a Raccoon at the back door.

Cali was so territorial, she would sit in the upstairs window and hiss at the garbageman for stealing her garbage. How she knew that it was our garbage, I have no idea.
