Friends at Last

I was beginning to despair of my two cats ever becoming friends. The new kitten was rowdy and playful and Charley wanted nothing to do with him. Honestly I was afraid she would hurt him, she was so mean. It didn't phase Clyde at all, though. He continued to stalk her, pouncng until she'd kick his butt so thoroughly he'd back off for a bit to lick his wounds and rethink strategy.

Otis never minded about Clyde. Clyde could chew Otis' tail to his heart's content. He chewed Otis' legs like chicken bones, chewed his ears like rags.
Otis let the kitten do as he pleased, only sitting on him now and again to get a break.

Then we noticed a slow change in Charley. She was curious, getting closer and closer and even...playing! with Clyde.

At last, Otis can get a break. Poor worn out guy.

Ah! Friends at last!

Oh, I'm so glad they are now friends. I knew Charley couldn't be all bad, just spoiled.

Oh, Charley wasn't the bad one, Janet! That kitten drove her crazy with his biting and jumping on her all the time. She's loving him now, cleans him and plays with him and every now and then, teaches him a lesson ;)

Interesting post, Sue - yes, as with all animals, I think we have to let them work friendships out for themselves. Your photographs tell the story well.

I don't know how I didn't notice this in person but their colors compliment each other. They are so pretty together. Charlie with her orange and white tabby color and Clyde with his gray and white tabby color. What pretty kitties. I'm glad Charlie came around. It will improve both of their lives to have each other.

Oh, so cute! Makes me want to get a kitten of my own. I love to watch them play.

Franklin and Julius fought constantly when we first brought Julius home - now they're best friends. I think they'll be fine together.
