I've observed that it's touching the ears while they have ear mites must cause the mites to react and annoy the cat. Mama fought me for 2 rounds of the stuff, however, while getting his teeth cleaned the vet was nice enough to give his ears a thorough cleaning as well. He must have cleared out most of the remaining mites in doing so because Mama no longer fights the drops. I actually gave them to him while he was snuggled up in a cat bed, he just went right back to sleep like nothing had happened.
I think the ear drops must sting a bit, that's why the cats fight them.
Oh they're not buddies... yet. Scotty looks so confused when Julius tries to rub up against him like "why you in my space?" - Eventually he'll put a paw up and kinda push Julius away, it's quite adorable. Julius tries this with everyone but Mama and is rebuffed by everyone. Scotty still gets bullied but not badly or as constantly as before. Just any time Junior is in a mood he'll try to ambush him repeatedly, Morgan will give him a couple swats any time they come near each other, and Mama - well Mama just likes his personal space lolAnd great news about Julius! Having a buddy makes everything go so much more smoothly, doesn't it? It must be nice for Scotty to have a friend too. Wasn't Scotty getting bullied? Having a friend should improve his position in the group a bit.
How is everything going with the construction work outside your apartment? Have any new cats come by?
The relationships between them are incredibly strange. Junior (the one in the last picture) will ambush through the stairs like that but only when Scotty is the target and it's not playful. Everyone else he's learned boundaries. He tried it once with Mama and was promptly trounced and never did it again.
Great pictures. You have the same kind of stair as we have. Do your cats like to dive through and ambush each other from the underside?
Who is the tabby sprawled out in the last picture? That's one very relaxed looking cat!
Just having him around is enough not even snuggling! She pops an anti-histamine every now and then when they get bad. Once we can get him used to the brush I think we're going to take him for a shave + bath. It should help get rid of the worst of the dander and then we can maintain him a bit better from then on.
Good job Julius. I'm glad you've settled in so well.
Is Alpha Kitty taking anything for her allergies? It's a shame snuggling with Julius makes her break out in hives.
