Another Day at the Door

On this particular day, what happened might have been our fault.. You see, it was warmish, but not warm enough to want the door fully open. So we only opened it a little. That meant that Star had to be close to Leo, who was in the door, in order to see out the door herself. And too close is not a good thing.

I mean, yes, they have gotten closer recently and sort of shared space as long as there's space between them. For instance, they are both sleeping on the couch at the moment, one on each end. A whole cushion separates them, and that seems to be the minimum tolerable distance.

But to see out the door, Star had to breach the cushion length distance.

Leo: I know you're out there Mr. Squirrel...



At this point, Leo was still unaware that Star had stepped up to peer over his shoulder.

Star: Why don't you move and let me spot him...




Once Leo discovered she was there, he got scared. He didn't think there was a way out, he was trapped. Slowly, he turned and tried to eye his cat tree. Finally he decided it was worth making a run for it. And she made sure he would not make the mistake of getting in her way at the door again.

Star: ..And stay out!


That's as far as the chase went, she barely set a paw on him. No kitties were harmed in the photographing of this picture!

Star then gained control of the door and went on squirrel patrol while Leo continued his watch from the window. So all's well that ends well.

Oh, and once more, they're close enough that you can see how very tiny Star is compared to big boy Leo.

Have a good, conflict free, weekend!

I am totally down with Star - I am a little cat, like her, and I am the boss of the other two Amazon kitties who live here. Well, mostly. Anyhow, I AM tough!

The Paw Relations said...

Oh dear. We generally have fights over who gets to look out of the window.

Austin Towers said...

WoW! there is a real difference in their size!!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Star is much tinier than we thought and she looks like a young kitten in the picture. Leo is much bigger than we thought.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Henry is the baby in our house, but boy does he take charge when he wants to :-)

The Island Cats said...

That happens here too...we all want to look out the door even if there's not enough room.

Bellen said...

Ah, that will happen. It happens quite a bit at my house, especially with the foster-cats there. They are learning to live together, slowly.

LP said...

Photo Cache said...

that's how emma and buster are; emma is so much smaller than buster so there is a disadvantage when buster wants to wrassle, which is always.

You two need to learn to open doors that are left ajar. Not only does it give you more room to share a doorway, it also causes a lot of entertainment when you practice on a bathroom door that wasn't quite latched.

Star may be small, but she certainly makes up for it with attitude.
