Get Along Weekend (please!)

Oh how I wish my babies got along better. Some days they fight. Some days I can imagine peaceful co-existence. In my wildest dreams I can imagine them curling up together in a huge ball of grey fur.
There are some days when they conspire to flumox me and actually sit in relative proximity without grumbling, hissing or fighting. Quiet days, they're wonderful, and they make me nervous at the same time because I wonder when the other paw is going to drop.
I'm going to try to stay in the wonderful part and share some amazing pictures today! My babies sharing a view without issues!
Leo: There's a squirrel!
Star: I know that squirrel. He thrives on attention, ignore him.
Leo: But he's tormenting me!
Star: Duh..

Leo: Is she picking on me?
Star: Hey squirrel! Look at the barbarian, he wants to pay attention to you! (and if you get close enough, I'm gonna get ya..)

Leo: Argh! He's doing his squirrel dance at me now! He's mocking me!
Star: heh heh heh.....

Ok, this wasn't quite as peaceful looking, but they stayed THIS CLOSE for a long time!
Star: I can't believe I have to be this close to you just to sit on my most excellent butt warmer..

Leo: No one said you HAVE to sit there...

Star: I ignore you. How do you like the Back of Disrespect?
Leo: Oh is that what you call it?

Star: Smart alec..
Leo: You know... my arms are long enough.. I can touch you from here.
Star: Try it and pull back a bloody stump.
Leo: I'm gonna tell mommy and you won't get to come to my party!
Star: ..... Shaddup, go back to sleep and I'll let you live til the party.
Leo: heh heh heh zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Speaking of his party Monday, it's gonna be a blow out! But the day after, that's going to be Fun Fun Fun for everyone!

Hint hint? Oooo ok, but this might be way too easy!
Try to keep the kitties from licking your screen...

We hope you all have a peaceful, wonderful weekend!

We rarely do more than tolerate one another here. But that's because I didn't have a say in who lived here...

Katie and Glogirly said...

I get along just fine with Glogirly.
Gloman can be a challenge.
Other animals and other people are another story though.
; ) Katie

Animosity takes a lot of energy - sometimes you've gotta take a break. ;-)

Sometimes, when I see cuddles and snuggles, I wonder about a little furriend, but your commentary makes me very glad to be an only kitty!
Purrs ... Rainbow

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Mommy's so grateful all 7 kitties get along with each other and with Whisky. So far so good!
We hope you have a peaceful weekend!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

Yay for (kind of) getting along. We will sometimes be on the same piece of furniture, but we don't cuddle. The last time we cuddled was when Newton was a kitten and he would cuddle-ambush other cats in their sleep. They would wake up and find themselves curled up around an orange kitten and look both confused and disgusted!

You guys need to work together to get that dancing squirrel.

Texas, a Cat in New York said...

I don't get along very well with my brother (half brother) Milou either.
Oh! The tip! This is nip, right!?

Hannah and Lucy said...

We don't snuggle up together every day but we do quite often.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

ZOOLATRY said...

Looks like a wee bit of success was achieved here, if only temporarily.
Maggy and Zoey haven't gotten that close in YEARS!
(unless I photoshop them together, that is ...)

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

Sassy and Callie just tolerate each also. Sometimes they will sit nearby, but this almost always ends up with smacky paws flying.

Random Felines said...

Heck, mom says if Spud and Junior would sit as close as that first picture she would be happy. sometimes you just have to take what you can get..... Can't wait for Monday!

William said...

I think blinders make for peace! My mom tells Caroline all the time to just not look at anyone who makes her hiss and growl.

Brian said...

I think you can, I think you can!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

they are just like kids, gotta love the good days with the "not-so-good" days!

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! Rainbow said it! I'm glad I'm an only cat. Don't know how other cats do it. The tension. The fighting. The jealousy. Actually the fighting doesn't sound that bad.

LP said...

Levon and Esme....ongoing conflict! Mostly Levon starting it -likes to tease Esme and she gets really upset poor baby!
We keep hoping that one day it will all happily fall into place...hopefully for you too!

the critters in the cottage xo

Colehaus Cats said...

Mostly, we all get along. Mostly. Except for Maxx. He thinks he's the most special one. Heh!

Seth, Newton, Tessa, Pia & yes, that Maxx cat too.

cats of wildcat woods said...

We are having a big squabble right now with Only, Al and Snowball - it never ends!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Darling darling darling Star, Oh yes!!! Please come over and comfort me some more, heh heh. I really really need comforting. Seriously. I mean it. XOXOXOXOXO Yrs. devotedly! Spitty

Katnip Lounge said...

Is that...that...a CATNIP HEART!?!!!


~*Connie*~ said...

hey, one step at a time..

Don't forget to make it really positive when they are near each other. Keeping some treats on hand might just reinforce that being together is a good thing.

The Island Cats said...

Haha! They sound like normal bickering children! We don't get along all the time either.

The Cat From Hell said...

Me hisses and merows almost everytime me sees Kozmo. He tries hard to be my friend, but me is interested!
