Welcome Home!

The players;

When I get home from work at night, Cruella is very excited to see me. I let her outside and she runs back and forth, touching me each time to make sure I am really there. She is still energetic when we go in.

Last night was a typical routine. Open the door, excited dog, run, run, run, go inside. Except C. Dog still had a lot of playfulness that she wanted to expend. So she tried cavorting with Comet.

Comet put up with it for a very short time. Then she tore into C. Dog.

This time, Cruella actually fought back. They were going at it tooth and nail and none of my yelling was causing them to stop. I finally had to reach in amongst all the snapping teeth and grab a collar. It was Cruella's.

The poor big coward all but launched herself into my lap. As soon as she was out of the fray, she started trembling.

I finally got Cruella calmed down and noticed that poor Ziggy (cat) had also been pretty darn close to the action. Her tail was the size of a baseball bat and she was hissing, growling, and swatting at anything that came near. She swatted at Comet and I thought Comet was going to eat her.

Comet went outside, Cruella went into the kitchen, and Ziggy disappeared into the bedroom.

And people wonder why I am still up at 2:00 am.

Sibling rivalry. And like a good mom, you broke it up. They just wanted you to feel badly for leaving them for hours on end.
And you forgot to mention that the Z cat is prone to hissing at everyone anyway!

Hahahaha, Cruella is developing multiple personalities. She just let out a bit of evil that she has been hiding somewhere underneath her meek exterior.
Maybe she needs therapy??
