First I want to thank Pigeon for my Valentine's photos. We are purring for Pigeon to feel better.
Now Mom wants to tell what happened this morning:
"I'm impressed with both my kitties. This morning they were in bed with me and having their usual scrap. As I'm looking, Squirrel swats Kitcat and gets one of her claws impaled inside Kitcat's nose! It was hooked right into the skin that separates nostrils. Like where they put the ring on a bull. I thought I was going to have a bleeding and sore little baby cat. She was squealing a bit. To my surprise, Squirrel held very still (her front leg out straight) and so did Kitcat with pitiful little meows coming out of her. They let me unhook Squirrel's claw as gently as I could. I'm sure there was a bit of broken skin, but no blood. If Squirrel had just pulled back, or Kitcat freaked out, her tiny nose would have got ripped. Good little kitties."
Me-ouch ... the thought of that makes my own nose hurt. Whew... that sure was a close one though.... & I must remind Squirrel about rule #4... NOT IN THE FACE SISTER (it seems I am always having to remind Hallie of that rule)!
You ARE a furry, furry good girl Squirrel! I know you didn't really mean to hurt Kitcat and that's why you held so still when she cried. (((hugs)))
Now, if it had been my sisfur and me? I think she woulda ripped my nose off. :~(
I did that to Mommy once! She yowled! Luckily, I didn't rip her nose off either.
