A Black Cat and Orange Cat Spell of Friendship for Halloween

Despite Shadow being with us for nearly three years (he showed up at our doorstep on November 8, 2019), the relationship he and Jazmine share is still tenuous. Granted, there are times they can be within a foot of each other without incident, as in the above photo, but those moments are few and far between, and the body language of both shows a cautious truce. They can, however, miraculously forget they are enemies when a can of tuna is opened, with them so intoxicated by the odor it renders them helpless to hissing and swatting, their typical modus operandi. But once the tuna festival is over, it’s back to stare-downs and belligerence. They can even pick each other out from our clowder of seven when everyone is in a group swarm, such as at dinner time, knowing which cat gets a paw swat to the head, and which doesn’t. Sometimes I can barely tell which cat is which, so I find that skill quite the fascinating marvel. They can get along with everyone else, just not each other.

So, for Halloween, I thought why not play a trick, and give everyone a treat? All that’s needed is a little witch’s spell and some help from Photoshop, and voila, you’ll see that anyone can be friends!

A pinch of tuna, a sprinkle of catnip, a ratty old blanket, and an empty box should do. Hocus, Pocus, throw it in the cauldron, do some fancy editing, and there you go, a Happy Meow-O-Ween to you!

Take care everyone and keep those kitties inside, safe and sound for this not-so-pet-friendly holiday.

    They, like all cats, are beautiful! and like all of us, they have their moods of being more or less friendly.

  4. they are beautiful and I agree with jmuhj above! Hell, I don’t like every person I meet lol. There are dogs at daycare that Levi gravitates towards to play with and others that he can’t stand, they have their moods/preferences too! Happy Halloween!!

      Caren, yes, you and jmuhj are entirely correct, that just like people, not all cats get along. I totally get it, but I’m the one that has to listen to the constant growling and hissing (which riles up the other cats), so if they could lean more toward nice, rather than hate, I’m going to try to wave that magic, hocus pocus wand of mine as much as I can – MOL!
