The Sister Cats

Eclipse and Angel, originally uploaded by torri_g.

Eclipse and Angel doing what they do best...curling up and just sitting around. It kind of surprised me that these two were sitting so close to each other last night after the week they have had with fighting with one another. Note to any visitors, when these two are going at it with each is best to just find a safe spot and stand perfectly still. There isn't a lot of clawing and gnashing of teeth that goes on with their fights, but there is a lot of extreme high speed running, jumping, flying through the air that goes on. At first you won't even realize just what is going on, you will just see a blur of black and white also known as Eclipse go sailing over, under, or on to the top of something. Then you will see a very smug Angel saunter into the room searching for her sister. Eclipse will stay silent and hidden till just the right moment comes and then like a shot she is off and running again. Of course she takes time to make sure that as she takes off she manages to touch her sister in some way so as to ensure that the fight will truly be in full swing then. After that the phrase "Game On" is about the only one that really works. Then it is nothing but very fast moving blurs of black and white fur through the house. The game usually ends when either Mom steps in and says the words "Enough Already you two!" or Miss Angel gets so mad about not being able to catch her sister she starts hissing and meowing like she is being murdered. Eclipse is the one that usually ends up being able to saunter with the victorious walk, and climbs up to what I think they view to be the best seat in the house...the back of the couch near the windows. Ah the never ending joys of siblings under the roof of this house.

It is time again for Feline and Furball Friday over with Steve and Pickle. If you should want to play along all you have to do is post your own and leave a link in comments. I hope that everyone has a great start to their Friday and that there is a wonderful weekend waiting for all of us.
