Time for a Grumble

Hallo again, Effurrybody!

It is I, Queen Trixie, Empress of Jerusalem, Israel and the Entire Middle East, Guardian of the Boudoir, Alpha Kitty Extraordinaire!

I have to tell you, my brofurs have been furry mean to me the past few days. As if things weren't bad enough with Caspurr sneaking up on Me and pouncing on Me all the time, now he has purr-suaded Shimshi to join in, and help him to ambush Me. They gang up on Me and corner Me, and it's Not Fair, it's Two to One! I knew this would happen when Mummy brought a second Mancat to live with Us. I just knew it.

Some of the time, I get on quite well with Shimshi, but Caspurr is a Furry Bad Influence on him. For example, he used to eat nicely, the way I taught him, but now he just gobbles his food the way Caspurr does, and even tries to steal Caspurr's food bowl (which is poetic justice, in a way). And, of course, they both do their best to steal my food, and would do so, if Mummy didn't put my bowl in a separate room at meal times and shut the door.

The thing is, Kitties, that all this puts Me in quite a Dilemma. Mummy is always ready to protect Me, of course, but if I run to her effurrytime the Boys bully Me, I will lose all credibility as an Alpha Kitty. On the Other Hand, they enjoy an Unfurr Advantage, as there are two of them.

What do you think I should do?

Maybe your mom can have more play time with all of you so you can be confident around the pesky boys and those pesky boys can have their energy drained through play instead of chasing you. And maybe if you all gets treats, you get them together and everyone has to be patient and allow each kitty to eat their treat without stealing or intimidating. It's important that you keep your status, and stay safe from the boys bullying you.

You are beautiful in your photo.

And are those regular power sockets behind you. It's interesting that they have round holes. I've never seen that but I know different countries do things differently.

I can whizz through the tunnel to your aid, Queen Trixie! I would soon whap those boycats into submission! I could be your court policeman and make sure all your laws are upheld and carried out to the letter, including dining etiquette! ❤️❤️

Mollie has similar issues with Morgan but she is a much younger girlcat. Mollie does not let Morgan stop her from doing or being where she wants but Morgan will occasionally chase her and jump on her. The bad news is the Morgan is twice Mollie's size. Getting a girlcat may not work for you. We gave 3 girlcats now having lost Jake our only boycat. Jake was the only one who kept Morgan in line. It's not that Morgan is naughty just that she's young and wants to play all the time. It's exhausting for two older ladycats. Good luck to you.

Trixie, I know all about mean brothers. The boycats that live here are mean to me sometimes too. I just give it right back to them. ~Zoey

Poor Trixie. Tell your Mom to get some Feliway and spray it around to calm those boys down.

You need an ally girlcat?

Katie Isabella said...

Boy I would LOVE to help you. If momma is away perhaps you can rest in the bedroom till she comes back. I assume your momma had talked to the brofurs and told them NO. xxoox

The J-Cats said...

Thank you all, dear furriends, for your advice and offers of assistance. Mummy and I have tried almost effurrything, except for the Feliway. Nothing seems to help.
Austin, thank you for your furry gallant offer. You too, Ayla, Izzy and Marley. I am greatly tempted to accept - except that I have to find a way of dealing with those meanies by myself, otherwise, it will be just the same as running to Mummy for purr-tection and then, they won't respect Me as an Alpha-Kitty (not that they do now...)
It's effur so hard to know what to do.

Queen Trixie

PS. Yes, those are regular power sockets behind me.

Your siblings need some herbal calming collars and treats so they won't be so rambunctious. We hope they are available there and they work for those naughty boys. Otherwise, you might have to stay in a secured room when your mommy isn't home :(

This is quite the dilemma, to be sure. At my house, Mason kind of rules the roost these days. She didn't always but then there were some incidents involving smacky paws and... well... let's just say, she is now the boss. MOUSES!

oh brofurs are the worst.. I hope you find something that works for you soon

This is a tough one. Our sisfur Miss Fitz is has quite the fast paw and can whack with the best of them but, when 2 brofurs or more gang up, never me of course, she is in a pickle. At times like that having a Dad or Mom jump in is acceptable!
