One great new thing is that I have a great new roomate, and she has lovely friends who come to visit and yay, things are getting better. My cat, Barbarella has gone a bit nuts though, because my new roomate's cat, Skittles, is adjusting to my cat and they're having some serious disagreements to suss out the pecking order. Lots of loud cat-fight screeches and already some broken crockery because of it. I keep thinking, why can't we all just get along?? But I guess there is a great honesty in they way they scream at each other, no game playing, just some serious nasty cat-swear words and aggression. Can't wait for the day when they are licking each other in the sun. How to encourage cat-peace?? Hmmm... Any suggestions??
