Sorta anyway. Boobear is at the top right and is 13 years old. That look on her face is what I'm seeing more often than not these days when she encounters either Meetzee, top left, or Max at the bottom. She still growls but not as loudly as she did last year and the 2 females sit with their paws crossed and stare at each other, I haven't a clue what that's supposed to mean. And now I have the issue of jealousy. Ally and Boobear are jealous of Meetzee and Max when I pet them and visa versa, it's almost funny. Oddly enough Ally gets along fine with Max but Meetzee still hisses at her and that's when I become mamma bear, no body messes with my Ally .... or Boobear. Do you suppose one day they will all get along?

My "queen cat" (the one that had been around the longest) always greeted the others with what I called the "morning hiss". We had four. In order of acquisition, Cherry (Queen Cherry), Jona (still with me, came at three days old, bottle baby), Paulette and Awaremi. Cherry tolerated Jona after the Morning Hiss. Jona tolerated and taught Paulette, and Paulette and Awaremi were best friends. All girls. It appeared to me that one step away in the acquisition train was about as far as any of them were willing to go in terms of being friends.

Nah, not as long as they want to fight for dominance, I'm sure that's why there is hissing involved. I haven't had cats in ages but the last cats I had seemed to like each other. That is until "The Queen" came in. She had the same personality as her owner (I was not her owner).

@rebelann Cats are clever, it wouldn't surprise me if she was milking the situation. I am partial to cats as a pet, I feel as if they can read a human's emotions better than a dog. Like I said before, I no longer have cats, but a friend of mine does... I've been upset at her house a time or two and up walks chickie plopping right beside of me and starting to purr.
