To my untrained eye and mind, it looks as though Bunny wants to boss everyone else and well...become the new BOSS. Bobby was the old boss, but he was an all-compassionate boss. Now, it looks like Bunny wants to reign...with terror!
Bunny has been terrorising little Tabs, Tiger, Indy and even Pole. Somehow, nobody dares to touch Cleo. Remember Cleo is the only non-stray in the house. She was born in Ming-Yi's wardrobe. I suppose that gives her an edge, and don't forget, she's Calico. Calicos have an attitude, don't they?
Two days ago, a very comical incident happened in the room. My son wanted to furminate Indy (as the Indy was lying in a very furminable position on the floor). So I passed him the Furminator and my son started to comb Indy's fur. Bunny the Terror was SLEEPING in his basket, hidden by the favourite chair. Somehow, he knew what was happening. In a flash, Bunny got up from his basket, stomped down the side table and rushed over. Indy felt so intimidated, he ran out of the room. Then, Bunny SAT himself down on the same spot, rolled over and ASKED for a furmination. I didn't manage to catch anything on camera as it happened too fast!
Now, is that terrorist behaviour or what, right?
I'm the BOSS now.
Sometimes he demands for a trip out of the room. We give in. He just wants to show everyone else that he gets his "leader privileges". (We give in simply because if we don't, he will (1) Meow non-stop (2) Choose a target (usually it's Tabs) and attack.)
MY rattan trunk.
When Mr G comes into the house, Bunny will come right to the grille and he would be the first to mount the defensive. Tabs and Tiger are his loyal soldiers.
I caught this on camera - an attack on Pole.
But Pole gets away scot-free. She's very wise and gets top marks for feline agility.
Right after an attack on Tiger.
Or rather, an attempted attack which normally does not materialise because there is no "kick". Tiger doesn't react! He just closes his eyes.
We've been giving him a lot of attention, and anyway, we have to. He DEMANDS for it.
If someone comes into the room and pats another cat first, Bunny will chase and attack that cat. Then, he comes over to the person, and asks to be patted.
Bunny must be the first to be furminated every day.
Yes, we know. You two are the new bosses. We know and we comply.
