3 bowls 6 cats....
« on: July 13, 2006, 08:55:03 PM »
The cast:
Shadow - blue tabby
Crookshanks - black
Elli - Part mainecoon tabby
Sadie - tortie




Shadow and Crookshanks sharing a bowl, and Elli and Sadie sharing.



Elli:  Do I really have to share with her?


They must have something better....


Move over, let me try that!


Crookshanks:  MOM!!! She's eating our food - tell her to share with Sadie!  Shadow and I were here first!


This is MY bowl, I'm not leaving, even if Shadow did go over there, you big.....

So you've seen this test - will the kittens be comfortable around the dog to eat and the dog be distracted enough not to just want to play...


Ok... when it is wet food time - I will not set any bowl with it down until everyone who is getting some is present....  And I decided today was the day to see how the big kitties reacted to them with food. 

Shadow had already been running around playing with the babies today.  I had everyone in the kitchen but Elli and Norbert (the largest and the smallest)  before I even had it all out of the cans!  So I had to carry the bowls around to keep from having cats on my kitchen counter eating while I found the other 2.  So I got everyone back downstairs... and had to wait for Sadie to stop growling at Norbert so he could come to where the food was, and then I had to wait for her.  Everyone in one room, good enough for me... Down they go!



Pretty good start - Elli and Tron sharing, Sadie and Shadow sharing (it's taken for now for her to even pretend to put up with him!)
But I said 6....



Yeah, Crookshanks is sitting back making noises I didn't know cats COULD make! 

Sadie left for awhile, and then so did Shadow...

So now, the queen...
is sitting with the babies causing no trouble what so ever!

But she decides to leave too... sooo...


I let them eat a bit more, but big bellies and I decided it was time for them to go to their room (yes, they have taken over the nursery


And shadow on his new claimed bed (I fold a blanket and don't put it away and I'm then not allowed to!)


So, now that everyone is out of the way... Crook comes out and is quiet!


But her boyfriend is welcome


Not too bad for a first try!

When the babies are out we have no real fighting, little talk here, little talk there, but if the big ones don't want to be around them, then the big ones leave!

To put into perspective - Elli is about 11 pounds - the kittens are around 1 each!
