My two brothers Jethro and Fynn, who are extremely bonded. And the newest addition Ceriah Rose who is worming her way into the boys hearts to lol. They try to sleep together on the one cat tree but its too small lol. Fynn always likes to have his paws around either of them when sleeping its so cute.
Leo (dark brown tabby) has no problem chasing around a 45 pound dog but when it comes to his baby sister Venus, he's as softhearted as they come. She can push him out of the way for his food and he'll be fine with it and she can pounce on him, naw his face and he'll just lay there trying (and failing) to groom her. She copies him and he lets her follow him around even if she's annoying him
I do a semi-liedown when watching TV because I can’t sit comfortably. My position creates a landing spot for cats in the crook behind my knees. Usually Timo, the male winds up hogging that spot but the other night Gemi, his sister beat him to it. He responded by getting almost on top of her and grooming her. Here’s the photo to prove it. That patch of blue denim shows where my bent leg makes a comfy spot for cats, but it was really hard to take a photo from that position! I had to take several before I got a decent one. Thank goodness for digital cameras!
Again, the photo quality is horrible, the two don't let me prepare better lighting conditions...
The bullying hasn't ended, but Pantera is actually teaching little Pimenta about hunting. Tonight Pantera caught a moth with a 5 inch wingspan (my god, I didn't even know such a thing exists... ); after playing with it for a time, and crippling a wing in the process ( Part of the process? ) Pantera (literally) passed the moth to Pimenta and impassively watched the little one play with the prey.
Pantera is not the caring type by any definition, but is genuinely teaching the little one how to be a panther- how to fight, how to hunt ( or at least, how to torture and mutilate insects ), and it's oddly fascinating to see how Pimenta tries to imitate Pantera
