Kootoo and Muffin have made a baby step towards accepting each other (I think).
They can now sit opposite each other (with a fence in between, of course) at a distance and size each other up without the obligatory sound effects of hissing and spitting.
However, Kootoo, being his usual playful self, keeps wanting to pounce at the little one, sending Muffin into hysterics. Muffin seems rather fearful of sudden movements or sounds and would react strongly, almost behaving like a possessed kitty. Perhaps she is still reeling from that unhappy episode in her life ... poor baby.
This morning, I suffered a cut on my left index finger when Kootoo came dashing at Muffin, who was in my arms. While trying to calm the little one, she gave me a nasty bite.
Muffin Terror in the making?
No truce in sight yet, but we shall be patient. But I only have nine fingers left ...
