For years, Moo Cat used to bully Blondie. She’d regularly hiss at her and slash at her and try to drive her off the scene. Blondie never fought back. She’s always been a pretty timid cat. She just took the abuse with a look of exasperation.
But lately it’s like the worm has turned. The pecking order has shifted. And Blondie is now the dominant feral cat of the tribe. Like this morning, I put out two dishes of cat food. One for Blondie and one for Moo Cat. Blondie starts eating from her dish. But then she decides, “I want Moo Cat’s dish, too.” So she pushes her face into Moo Cat’s dish and starts eating Moo Cat’s food, too. Blondie has taken over both dishes!
So now I have to put Blondie’s dish way over there. And Moo Cat’s dish way over on the other side. Just so they eat in peace.
But I wonder what happened. I think Blondie finally got sick of taking Moo Cat’s shit. And kicked her ass. Settled it once and for all. Or maybe she teamed up with this big new gray feral tom cat that’s been on the scene lately who she’s real friendly with. And they double-teamed poor ole Moo Cat.
I swear. Sometimes, feral cats can act just as uncivilized and poorly behaved as human beings.
