Things are still fairly tense between Skeeter and Wanda, and they seem unable to chill out and ignore one another yet. Skeeter’s file at the shelter said that she’d been surrendered by her owner because they had “too many animals”, and so much of the drama between the two of them happens around the food dish that we’re starting to wonder if Skeeter grew up in a house where she had to fight to get food. We’d previously just assumed that “too many animals” was a cover up for “she’s mean to other cats”, but the more we watch them, the more sure we are that most of Skeeter’s aggression is motivated by fear. Still, it’s annoying as hell.
She was sitting around the corner from the food staring into the heat vent as if watching Wanda through it, and just before I reached for the camera Wanda had looked up from eating to stare through the vent from the kitchen side. Then, not knowing Skeeter was on the other side, she started around the corner.
This is where I warned her to slow down, but she kept going.
I feel horrible for laughing at Wanda’s having the wits frightened out of her, but you’ve got to admit that posture is pretty funny.
