After a quiet night without much in the way of incident, they appear to be getting on or at least to have reached an agreement.
Having baited the environment with catnip, both cats were able to be within a couple of feet of each other without any problems and hardly a growl.
Tonight, they both disappeared upstairs and sat there looking out of the window. Mutual understanding perhaps. Perhaps cats are the solution to the middle east unpleasantness.
More boring cat photos to follow.
… and more of Claudia 🙂
