As you know, the Guardians have been letting Mama Cat have free roam of the house while they are home. This has been going well, except when Brother Henry tries to make friends. Since things have been going so well, they decided to see what would happen if they let Mama Cat have free roam of the house all night as well. Honestly, it went great… until 2 am when Thomas and Brother Henry started having their nightly wrestle-fest. It started the usual way, with them tearing around the house after each other, making it sound like a herd of wild horses was loose in the house. But When Brother Henry jumped up on the large cat tree with drawers by the living room windows, He encountered something he did not expect.
Henry was face to face with Mama Cat! I guess he hadn’t noticed that the door to her safey-safe in the office was open. I’m thinking that all of the ruckus that Thomas and Brother Henry had been causing had caused Mama Cat a bit of concern. Brother Henry said, “Ummmm… Hi Mama!” Mama cat replied, “HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!”
Mama Cat then jumped down and dove under the couch. From underneath there, she started growling and yelling at Brother Henry. Brother Henry jumped down and Thomas joined him. They were both staring underneath the couch trying to figure out what the heck was wrong with Mama Cat. All the growling and yowling woke the Guardians. The bigger Guardian coaxed Mama out from under the couch, put her in her safey-safe and closed the doors, thus defusing the whole situation. Thomas and Brother Henry returned to their nighttime craziness and Mama snuggled in to her tomcat free abode.
So it looks like the tension between Brother Henry and Mama Cat is ongoing. I shall have to think long and hard on this to see if there is anyway I can help bring them together. At this point though, the possibility seems remote.
