Sparring Partners


Since the first day Chris graced our home with his presence, he has had a fighting spirit. He would attack the other cats, hoping to find someone willing to play with him but would instead just get growls and hisses.

That changed when we got Puck, who was a kitten at the time and is now about a year and a half old, still young enough to keep up with Chris. That may change when Puck matures and Chris doesn’t, but we shall see.

The other night the two of them got into a major fight, taking it from one room in the house to the next.

My box, stay away!

Oww! You’ll pay for that, Puck!

This should show you who is boss around here. (Chris will sometimes hold Puck down by the scruff to show dominance)

No, wait! That tickles.

Do you want a face full of this?

You can’t hide from me!

Who’s the boss now, Chris?

We are fortunate that our two cats, while they fight a lot, are also friends. By that I mean Puck is able to tolerate Chris’s behavior and occasionally put him in his place when necessary.
