Barbarian at the Gate

Is it wrong that the title of this post makes me giggle?

I know the pictures have been pretty Leo heavy lately. But that kind of makes up for the Star heavy week we had recently, no?

Well, anyway, this recent series was too cute to pass up, even though it's blurry beyond forgiveness from my cell phone. It was one of the days when we closed the gate at night to keep the kitties separated. It has to be from a week ago, but I just found it on my camera. We've had the gate open for most of this week and there have been only two fights, and one of those might have just been a loud game of chase! You have no idea how happy this makes me!

So the gate, which is a long folding table on it's side, was up and there's this little crack where it can't go all the way because of the floor moulding. They'd been bugging each other through it for a while, and a few times we even opened it about an inch so they could see each other better.

Leo looked like he was getting silly on his side of the gate this time. You know Star is on the other side because he's sitting there looking. When she's not there, neither is he. So I guess you could say Star IS in this post, just not shown!

I see you, but you can't get me!
 
 
 

I know it's hard to tell because his head is blocked by the doorway, but he's rolling over on his back and using one paw to play with the opening in the gate.
neener neener! This is how I roll!




And here he is realizing that recently Star realized that she's tiny enough to squeeze along the wall behind the gate if we accidentally leave it at too much of an angle. That was a bit shocking let me tell you! Suddenly she's there, giving him a whap, then she's on the other side of the gate looking innocent as can be! We weren't exactly sure what was going on for a while until we, slow humans, figured it out!
Uh oh... I hope the gate is tight enough today...




Gratuitous old picture of Star because I know you miss her face!
You never know when I'm going to appear.. heh heh heh!


 
Fingers crossed that we, and you, have a fight-less holiday!

I like how Leo was "teasing" Star and then realizes, "oops"....she might be able to sneak in a get me.

Oh, dear, we're doing gates and fights here too. Percy just will not accept Micah. Hope this resolves soon.

Love your Christmas decorations on the blog.

A peaceful holiday, without gates, would be just the thing! Purrs...

Waffles TOO and Katie spent their first night "together" or rather, unseparated just last night. So far so good. But I can't get any sleep with a kitten climbing on my head every couple of hours! HA!

It sounds like they might be starting to get along a little bit. Maybe not best friends but at least I guess we have to live in the same house. Hope all have a great day.

Heh heh... good girl Star,you keep him in line!

But I hope you guys get along, having a gate can't be fun. Tho it would be fun to put Hammy behind a gate while I had full run of the house. That would be totally fun.

We hope you two soon realise it is nice to have a snuggle buddy and start to get on together.

With the title of this post, we thought it would be about the UPS man!

We love seeing Leo's tummy when he is rolling around like that. It looks cuddleable.

Hey Leo, hey Star, let there be peace on earth and let it begin with you!

ABBY said...

We will wish for peace between Star and Leo!

Boycats who torment their sisfurs through gates had best be prepared to face the music, right, Star darling? I bet you whapped that big goon real good, didn't you? I loves me a LadyCat with some feistiness!

Sparkle said...

Haha. That made us laugh! When Maggie was still alive, Moosey used to go visit her by jumping the baby gate. We did not know this, however, until our pet sitter made mention of it. :)
