Welcome to Chapter 6 of our cat introduction
series. Chatzi has been downstairs into the main living
area of his new home once already, and he’s as mischievous as expected! note his tail position – Upstairs in his own
domain, his tail is completely vertical, but downstairs in a new area, his tail’s fairly
low. it’s not tucked under like a nervous or frightened cat, but certainly not confident
and king of the jungle! Freya’s still maintaining her pretend bluster.
A loud warning growl and shrieking is keeping Chatzi wary. Interestingly, she’s making the
noises, but not actually maintaining eye contact with him. I think this is to make the warning,
but she doesn’t want to escalate it any further, by challenging him with direct eye contact. She’d really rather he would just go away. A sudden move by him warants a hiss from
her! Look how he sneaks underneath her — He’s still not sure of her! Another hiss sends
him scurrying. Off he goes, exploring the room again. Teego
is curious and bold and actually feels a little confidence come back, Chatzi is sure
it’s a game! Teego relishes in his higher positon. Height
is a big thing with cats. They always want a high perch to look down on any potential
enimies. Low down is harder to defend. Oh Dear! Chatzi takes an interest in Freya — Maybe
she’s turned her back, and he pounces. Not really to attack, but just to tag her, and
maybe instigate a fun chase. (Fun for for him anyway!) All the excitement brings Teego
over. Chatzi waits, anticipating a game, but nothing happens. Teego has shown such incredible curiosity
about Chatzi — Fortunately, not aggressive, but he really loves to follow him around everywhere! Again, Teego goes for easily defended high
ground and Chatzi tenses up in the playful way we’ve seen him do in many of his films.
He always goes sideways to make himself look bigger For one of the most graceful animals the world
has ever seen, Chatzi is a disgrace! I love his clumsy stumble upstairs, Again with teego
close behind! After a while, the excitement calms down.
Chatzi finds a perch in the rocking chair, and Freya gets some quality grooming time. I think things are going to work out just
fine in the Freyacat household! I really hope you’re enjoying our cat behaviour
