Tabs is usually the first to notice any intruder and she usually chases them away. I think to her, it's all a game.
Bunny approaches but I call him back in a calm manner, urging him to leave Mr Shrew alone. Cleo watches.
I must say, this Mr Shrew is really brave, isn't he?
Bunny stops in his tracks and turn around. Mr Shrew is gone but....
...returns in no time.
Tiger is monitoring the situation from the washing machine and probably sending messages of peace to everyone.
Cow approaches now.
Tabs is watching from the shelf.
But Mr Shrew is not afraid at all.
I managed to coax Cow to leave Mr Shrew alone, so he goes bite the slippers instead.
Mr Shrew continues eating.
Our hunter, Cleo is just watching.
Cow checks out the bowl after Mr Shrew moves to the next bowl.
Oh no, Indy is here....is Mr Shrew in danger?
Suddenly, a fight broke out and Cow was seen chasing Pole out of the room.
Pole drinks water to calm down.
The catfight noise did not in the least disturb Mr Shrew. He continues nibbling on the kibbles.
I'm quite surprised that none of the cats chased Mr Shrew...
Aha...here's our answer - Tiger.
Even Indy did not chase Mr Shrew (he normally does).
Pole is a hunter, but she too leaves Mr Shrew alone.
Let all beings come in peace. The world belongs to all of us.
I too did not chase Mr Shrew today.
A possible theory: Did Mr Shrew hypnotise all the cats today?
