Rocky’s Reign of Terror

2014-04-11 17.41.12


When we first got our little Rocker I was worried that the other cats would take advantage of him, probably steal his mouse money and perhaps even convince him to do stupid things, like try to fly off high places. Rocky is after all the cat version of the human who believes there is such a thing as tartan paint. I was particularly wary of one-eyed Charlie cat, who lives upstairs, because surely he must have once had two eyes and I just can’t help presume that he lost the missing one in a terrible claw fight.

So imagine our dismay when we happened to catch our tiny, little, oh-so-cute, precious Kitten instigating the bad behaviour. As much as it pains me to admit it, it turns out Rocky is the one who chases the other kitties (Charlie barely ever even glances in his direction until Rocky is practically on top of him hissing), Rocky is the one who every time he runs past next door’s cat flap hits it with his paw in an act of defiance, and Rocky is the one who seeks out the other cats and then gets angry at them for being on ‘his’ territory.

The only explanation is that when we are not around the other cats gang up and corner him so he is forced to do these terribly annoying things and that the cute purrs and miaows of said other cats are really cleverly disguised threats to Rocky’s life. Yes, that must be it 😉
