It's funny how a decently mannered cat can turn into the most pissingest, shittingest, vomitingest little asshole in the flick of a whisker. Pierre - the orange fluffer - still doesn't like Patrick - the orange tabby - but has been getting along fairly well with him.
Now, however, there is Jewel - a calico Manx with no tail - and Pierre is furious at this further split in attention. Not only is Jewel fresh off of being attacked by Christina's sister's cat Millie (who literally jumped out of her sister's arms with claws extended Wolverine-style to destroy her foe) but she also spent about 10 out of 24 hours locked in a pet taxi en route. When Christina attempted to separate Millie from Jewel (Jewel, being declawed in the front, was losing badly) Millie sank her teeth into Christina's wrist.
So Christina's sister decides she doesn't want the cat after all and to take her back where she got it, but she got it from her boss and thinks she can't return her because that would be rude, especially after saying that she would have a loving new home at her sister's place.
So Jewel is here now, hiding behind the water heater because every time Pierre sees her or Patrick or me or Christina he snarls and snorts and hisses.
He's usually so mild mannered, but I've only ever seen him this pissed off once before. We have to knock him out with Benadryl when he goes to the vet - otherwise he projectile vomits all over the place and it takes about 4 or 5 vet assistants to give him his shots.
Uh oh ... here he comes ... gotta go!
