Stormy being brave and trying to get her bluff in on Marley.
Our son and his puppy, Marley, were here several days during Christmas.
Our family had a great time. We played a lot of games, ate, visited, and watched Marley and our kitty, Stormy,
whenever they got close to each other.
We were hoping they would get along and become friends.
Stormy had to stay downstairs the first
two days, mostly because she would hiss and want
to strike at Marley with her claws showing.
Finally, she decided she had enough of being alone
most of the time and ventured upstairs.
Help Mom, lock that dog up!!
The minute Marley made a move to walk closer to Stormy,
she hightailed it down the hall with Marley in hot pursuit.
We then decided it might be wise to put
Marley in the kennel for a while.
That's much better, thanks!
Stormy thought that was an excellent idea, too. She
was very relaxed by now and started pulling herself along
inch by inch toward the kennel. They stared at each other
for quite some time and almost touched noses.
After a while, we decided to try again
with Marley out of the kennel.
Let's try getting along again outside the kennel, okay?
Well, peace reigned for all of 5 minutes, then it was a game of
mouse puppy again. They were back to chasing and
stalking each other.
Don't get too close, Marley!
