Sunday Selfie:
Buddy, the Beast in the Bedroom

Well, Furiends, as you can see, my life has been thrown into chaos and distress. In *my* bedroom (there is only ONE in this apartment and it is mine-all-mine) lurks a large, lumbering Beast called (ironically, I presume) "Buddy." He's twice my size and real stinky, and he's been here for like three years already, or maybe I mean weeks? Well, it seems like years. I don't care much for him.

Sometimes I hang out around his partially-closed door and sniff and scream a little. Tonight he was playing loudly with his (my*) fevvers and I trotted right in. We both hissed once and then I ran away right quick before he could EAT me.

The Lady here says eventually we will get used to each other, but I am unconvinced.

*Everything here is mine. I was here first!

Gigi, we sure hope you and Buddy will become friends one day soon. We hear he is a nice guy!

Do we detect some slight tortie/calico histrionics ? We did hear something about you screaming like a banshee a while ago, at the poor innocent mancat who just wants an easy life ? We gather he is a total tart, and you are a somewhat shy recipient. You have to free that inner kitten and drop that final part of the feral card - love the Tabster and PLAY together. No hissing. Nor ultarsonic histrionics.

Gigi, its Jo Jo. I took over as the Queen when Nellie Bellie went over the bridge. I do not think your behavior is at all unacceptable. Man Cats MUST be managed by us grrl cats and you need to whap them, hiss and sometimes use teeth and claws. It takes time haughtiness and persistence. If you need support, just let me know. I am here for you Gigi!

Awwww…come on Gigi. I had to endure your presence in my castle for like a bazillion years!! And I never once raised my voice. Give the Budster some space

I'm sure you and Buddy will be best pals soon!

Or maybe not.

Megan said...

Yes - you're absolutely correct Gigi - you were there first and everything in the place is yours. That said, you might consider the merits of sharing a little with this chap. Build rapport with him and then you've got someone on your team to take on the Human!

hopefully you will find a way 💝

It just takes some time Gigi, it's new for both of you.

Eastside Cats said...

Hiya, Buddy! Pleased to meet you.
Gigi, you keep a sharp eye out, and Buddy will know that you are boss cat.

Just Ducky said...

Well, I hope you accept Buddy at some point. I know I was the second cat here joining Derby. It took us a while to be able to related and co-exist. Welcome Buddy.

Buddy is a cutie and I think you should give him a chance!

I hope he will become your best "Buddy". XO

Cathy Keisha said...

*I* think Buddy is cute and so should you. If not, devise a plan to kill him.

Timmy Tomcat said...

We had a "Buddy" living here and he was a tyrant. He made me be good and because he was the only other cat bigger than me I had to listen. I suggest hiding everything good and being a devious as you can to make him rue the day he met you!

But Gigi, if you have Buddy as a friend (I won't be presumptuous and say boyfriend) think of the fun you can have bossing him around.
CK made me laugh but I think that is a bit extreme!

Dash Kitten Crew said...

OK, as a tabby boy, I must stand shoulder to shoulder with my tabby brofur and assure you that he will not eat all your food or all of your feathers. In fact, he may be scareder um.. more afraid of you than you are of him - OK? tho' he may not show it.

You are queen of the house, he will learn his place soon enough.

Gigi, y’know…I think you and Buddy could become friends as long as he knows you were there first and he has to do everything you say. Yep, that could work. ~Ernie

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh Gigi......I know it's tough when an introoder takes up residence in YOUR territory but I think having a friend is a cool thing. Buddy probably is still adjusting to having a safe home - maybe it would be nice if you gave him a chance? I think it's swell that you are trying to visit him even if he hasn't been very nice in return but keep up your effort - if you two can become friends it will be SO MUCH NICER! Honest - I promise!

Hugs, Teddy

Ayla here: Gigi, you are faced with a new cat like I was with Laz. You have my sympathies!

I hope you and he get along better sooner than Laz calmed down here. The year it took was 11 months too long.

Yes you will get used to him the same way I (Emma) got used to having a pest for a brother (Buster). On cold days (you have plenty in the city), it's wonderful to have a nap buddy for a little warmth.

Cleo said...

Oh dear, well we hope to heavens you and Buddy will one day be able to get along. I've overheard my mom and dad discussing getting a housemate for me. They say they might foster first just to be sure I'd do okay. I'm not sure about this whole thing.

Katie Isabella said...

GiGi darling. I missed this. No notification is making it harder. But here I am...and on behalf of Buddy...it WILL get better!

Photo Cache said...

Hi this is Emma, don't believe the lady. That's the same thing they said to me when Buster appeared in the house. He's still here and we have not gotten along well. But we have managed to be 80% civil to each other.
