Fools Rush In


We have a pretty cat. Another pretty cat.


Angel loves to hide around the house, and one of her favourite spots is my closet.

Which is fine.

Was fine.

We got Angel because someone told us cats do better in pairs and, like all good cat owners, we wanted our other cat, Minion, to be happy. On the wafer thinness of this advice, and upon hearing on the pipeline there was a kitty special at the local RSPCA, Tracey took Miss11 to see what was available.

“The special’s finished,” Tracey told me when she called.

“That’s okay,” I said. “There’ll be another one.”

“That’s going to be a problem.”


“Because we’ve driven away and your daughter is crying because she’s fallen in love with a kitten back there.”

So we got our Angel.

And, I have to confess, I’ve become a little attached. Or rather, I had. Truth is, though, this week our relationship has become a little strained. You see, contrary to the stellar pet advice we’d received, our two cats have been struggling to find common ground.

Mostly Minion just chases Angel around the house until Angel manages to hide somewhere.

Like my closet.

“What the hell is this?” I asked Tracey. I was staring at my shirts. Oddly, I’d found several with stains on their collars. “Looks like rust.”

I went to lean in for a sniff.

Tracey glanced over my shoulder.

“Don’t do that,” she advised me.

Now that was great advice.

Turns out little Angel has been leaving shit prints on my shirts.

In related news, she needs to find a new hiding spot.

  • Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ‘Cats love to be in pairs’ Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
    Cover them both in a thin layer of fish oil and lock them in the laundry till they lick each other clean. It will help them bond.
    Eventually they will tolerate each other and you’ll get lots of laughs. I hope they’re both female. Or a male and female.
    Cats actually think their territory is several blocks in size.
    One of my cats used to stop the other from accessing the outdoors or the litter so we’d get shit surprises throughout the house.
    Let me know if you need help getting cat wee out of carpet.

    Good luck

  • BAHAHAHA! Sure, cats do well in pairs… sometimes lol Usually when you get them young and at the same time. But Angel will have to put up with some crap from Minion for a while before they will be buddies. Good Luck!
