Molly the Cat

February 16th, 2009 at 1:35 pm ]

After many months of leaving the cat tree territory to Twinkie and Twinkie alone, Molly has moved back in. She prefers the top level, whereas Twinkie prefers the middle level, so it’s not as bad as it could be, I suppose. Still, this new encroachment is causing some strife because Molly loves to reach down from above and bat Twinkie on the ear. Twinkie is actually very tolerant of this behavior; she doesn’t give Molly any satisfaction by getting annoyed or fighting back. She just hunkers down a little more so that Molly can’t reach her. A few minutes ago, however, Molly took it a little too far. As usual, she was leaning down to bat Twinkie, and Twinkie was making herself as flat as possible, which made Molly lean even further down, down, down, until finally she lost her balance and toppled right out of the cat tree, tumbling onto the floor in a whirlwind of fur. She ran away into the bathroom and I haven’t seen her since. Has Molly learned a lesson? Time will tell.
