Star had been sitting on the chair by the door. I don't know why she likes it, but she's there a lot. Leo had been in the window, tucked up and half hidden. He usually prefers to sit on his tree in the window, but once in a while he will get in the window. Star, when she's up there, prefers the window to the tree. To each their own right?
So Leo's in the window, and I think some critter came by because he got all excited and jumped out, onto his tree and spun around to stare at whatever it was. Either he forgot she was in the chair, or he did not know she was there. When he spun around on that tree, his great big floofy long tail whapped Star right in the face!
You'd expect her to react with great speed and vengeance, wouldn't you? I did.. But she just sat there, granted, with a ticked off look on her face. But she did not attack or smack or anything.
Pictures started a few minutes after the event started because I was too afraid there was going to be a smack down and then too fascinated to remember to get the camera out.
Oh, and if Leo's tail appears slightly blurred, it's because it was twitching madly, and occasionally brushing over Star's whiskers or the side of her face. And Still nothing!
Leo: Oh boy oh boy oh boy!!
Star: I can't believe he just whacked me in the face.. Rude barbarian.
Leo: Come closer birdie! Come on!
Star: Seriously mother, do I have to put up with this?
Leo: Hey! Where you goin' birdie?!?
Star: I've had about enough of this.
Leo: Oh lookie! More birdies!
Star: At least now I'm out of the way of that pendulum the barbarian calls a tail..
