Tango has been going AWOL since jakes arrival. We noticed how thin he had become and because he hadn't been around much the dominant smell in the house has been Jake so recently each evening about 1800hrs I lock the cat flap so you can only come in. Basically forcing the issue of a meet. We need someone to be dominent, until they are I can't leave them alone
so yesterday they passed one another. Today Tango passed Jake a number of times
he insists on being fussed and has even rolled over and laid on his back, which I haven't managed to capture on camera as its difficult taking pics one handed!
this evening Jake has been wandering round the house somewhere and Tango has been in and used his litter tray even though he has one of his own downstairs. I think the dominance is coming through without any fights!
We are still concerned with Tangos skinnyness, he has never been this thin so I think next week I will get him to the vets for a FIV Feline Aids test, as he seems to have a piercing of his ear and has obviously been in more fights. I spotted the feral cat down the road by the equestrian centre with a mouth full of rat. I wonder if Tango does come back positive whether the RSPCA and cats rescue will be more helpful in trapping him. I bet they will, whilst I may lose a much treasured pet becuase of there lack of help! Lets hope it doesn't come to that!
