Today’s Tuxie/Tortie Doozy of a Snoozy is one I’ll never see again. This makes me very sad. Once upon a time in a universe far, far away Astrid and Lisbeth were inseparable. Now they each prefer to snuggle with Mauricio, their dad or me.


I'll Never See This Again


About the only time these two are even in the same room together is at mealtimes. If they accidentally encounter each other, Lisbeth becomes a hissy face.

Cat relationships are complicated, and I don’t know what turned this one from loving to adversarial. I guess it could turnaround some day, but I’m not going to bet the kitties’ kibble on it. For now I’ll just have to look at photos and fondly remember the togetherness times.

Does anyone else have kitties who used to be friends but aren’t anymore? Do you know why the relationship changed? Whatever insight anyone can offer would be appreciated.

That’s so sad 🙁 Maybe they had a quarrel just like us humans do…hopefully it will pass one day!

I always get along with myself. When TW tried to bring Syssy up to see Chizzy who was her son, she hissed and swatted at him. I guess being inside changed his scent.

We kitties are a constant source of bemusement to the humans!!

That’s a puzzling thing for sure…such sweet pics and memories. Cuddles to my special furriends, Fiona & Giulietta…

It is sad that they don’t get along anymore, they look so happy. My friend has a mother/daughter pair that are the same way that she adopted them as adult kitties. They sure haven’t in the 2yrs she has had them, even thought they supposedly did before their previous owner passed away. Who knows…..

That is kinda sad. Me and Wally have had our moments where we can’t stand each other and the mom worries that maybe we won’t get over it…but somehow we do *knock wood* and things get back to normal.

Oh, they were sweet when they were cuddle bugs! We’re still cuddle bugs most of the time but sometimes my little sisfur gets hissy with me but it only lasts for a little while. Mommy once had real sisfurs that she raised from itty bitty babies and they ended up hating each other when they were older so yeah, we kitties are hard to figure out.

It is a shame when relationships change. It is so nice to see kitties snuggling. Eric and Flynn always used to snuggle up together on the bed leaving us clinging to either edge.

I’ve always had kitties that ARE offish to each other. I so wish I’d find them curled up close to one another but never have.

It sure is hard to know what caused the turn in events, and they aren’t saying.

Binga and Boodie have always been buds – even though Binga beats the you-know-what out of her sometimes! But they always make up.

Gosh, that is sad…….I suppose that kitty relationships are much like human ones in that sometimes a “tiny thing” turns into a “big thing” and before you know it, the relationship is DIFFERENT. Mau seems to be a kitty magnet lately……obviously he makes a good “heating blanket” and pillow!

Hugs, Sammy

Cat relationships evolve, don’t they? We still have photographic evidence of Newton cuddling with Pierre, but that’s not going to happen again between those two macho mancats, either.

Toby here, my experience with female felines is that the older they get, the grumpier they get. Maybe they go through catopause or maybe they just are like grumpy old human females. Male felines, on the other paw, the older they get, the more loving they are. I have no scientific proof, just life experience!!

We hope they will just have had a tiff and will soon be snuggling again.

Such beautiful pictures. Let’s hope they come back to that relationship. Stay safe during Guy Fawkes. (Do you celebrate this – or is it just an inherited thing from England?

Well, when our three kitties at one time here in this den (not us.), one of them became a special needs kitty with seizures, etc…and the other two would beat her up and hiss, etc…meowmy had to cage her at night to keep her safe.OMC.

Those are sweet pictures to cherish!
