Sometimes cats do very funny things -- like get spooked for no reason and stay that way for over an hour. The other day Joseph accidentally stepped on Ruby's tail and she let out a squeak (don't worry she was fine, it was just a reflex noise). After that, Mingus who was nearby puffed up and hid from all of us. Usually if he gets spooked Ruby can calm him down pretty quickly, but this time he acted as though he didn't even know her. He was walking around sideways and on his toes, with his hair making him double in size, attacking and at the same time being terrified of Ruby, who seemed to enjoy the whole ordeal really. We couldn't help but laugh either.
After a while of madness we gave them both some catnip and eventually Mingus seemed to accept us again as his family. Err... the end.
I'm off today to get my wisdom teeth out -- fun, I know -- so I may be a little absent this week (or perhaps the complete opposite) but I hope you all have a lovely Monday, free of crazy cat drama.
