The topic: And an update on Mario


As you may remember, Mario came to live with us on July 5, 2012. He's never really fit in, having been an only, outdoor cat for much of his life. His companion was a small dog. Well, as much as some people would like to believe, small dogs are not cats.

It was a big transition for him. The cats weren't as receptive to swats on their tails or ambushes from above like his dog companion was.  They took it as a threat, some worse that others. And reacted accordingly. Sagwa was one of the worst offenders. I remember one vet trip due to a fight between the two of them.  Lots of growling and hissing.

It would appear that the introduction of Rocky has lessened the pressure on Mario. Which is a good thing. A very good thing. Relaxed cats are happy cats.

And here's a video I took this morning of a very happy Mario.
