The Tables Have Turned

When Frankie arrived at our home, alone and scared, Chris decided that he was the enemy and set out on a campaign of torment. We were very distressed about that because he did not do that with Puck and we were not expecting that kind of behavior from Chris. Nevertheless, whenever Chris got the chance, he would attack and, of course, Frankie would defend himself.

Eventually Chris warmed up to Frankie and gradually would not only instigate fewer fights but seemed to want to become friends with him. Unfortunately the damage has been done. The fighting continues but now it is Frankie that does most of the instigating while Chris seems to play a submissive role. Don’t get me wrong, Chris still thinks he’s the boss, but many fights with Frankie occur with Chris lying down while Frankie circles for a good spot to attack.

Our cat Frankie looks for a good spot to attack Chris.

    Oh dear…..they are really having a problem with “who’s the boss” aren’t they…..I had hoped like everyone else that they could at least get along with each other but the battle for dominance continues! 😦

    Oh my, such drama! Where’s the popcorn? Hehehe. Hope it all sorts itself out soon and everyone learns to live peacefully in full harmony 🙂

    Oh dear, I can’t say Chris doesn’t deserve it, but it’s got to be hard to hear hissing and growling. We get it with trixie and buggy, but it isn’t a dominance thing she forgets where buggy is or tries to play with him and doesn’t know what hissing really means. Hopefully things calm down in your house.

      Thanks. Frankie also attacks Puck but there is no hissing or wacking so I think they are just playing. I hope him and Chris can learn to play.
