Mid-afternoon in the garden of good and evil


Angel.



Devil.



Good.


 

Evil.



The Twitter Usage Monitor: he's good AND evil! Yesterday, Sophie decided to mess with Julius, or vice versa. They have never liked each other although Sophie is smart enough to acknowledge feline authority, and generally gives Julius a wide, if begrudging, berth. But for some reason, she thought she'd have a go at Julius yesterday.



Bad idea. Julius is just fine. Sophie has scratches all over her face. Thank goodness Julius missed her eyes! Look at those three scratches on the left. It was very close.



I was there when it happened (Julius hissed, Sophie growled, and to be honest, I think Julius lashed out first.) This is why we never leave the dogs alone in the house with the cats (they stay in my office when we are out.) While they are generally fine, you never know when a certain old marmalade kitty is going  unsheath and go for a canine.

Now they're all acting like nothing ever happened.

Note Naomi in the background. I'm not sure if she's mocking Sophie or merely curious.

And Sophie has a new nickname: Pincushion!

    1. Julius has nothing but disdain for dogs. Sophie has recovered but she's good at that pathetic look!

  4. Aw, poor Sophie, she looks like all she wants is sympathy. In my house the problem is the battles among the three cats. The cats leave the two terriers alone.

  6. My sister's cats usually take one look at me and give me a wide berth, even going as far as to change their direction if necessary. I wonder if they sense that I have no soul or something?

  7. How can Emily be evil and a devil? She looks so cute and innocent. As for Sophie and Julius, they seem just like siblings who have the occasional fight. Sounds like things have been lively around your place!

  8. Hugging you, Sophie! Never, never trust a cat. In a fight, walk away. You'll never bite a cat, but one will scratch you, somehow, sometimes, someway. Don't be sad. You're a grand, old dog. Even if we're always amused by the cats, we also love you, lots and lots!
