Last seen Arwen was still about half the size of Boris and making strenuous efforts to persuade Boris that he wasn’t really a rather portly middled aged ginger but a perky young thing keen to play….
Two months later Boris was still try to look very superior – although, if you watched carefully, you would notice that he always left his tail hanging temptingly – and flicked it whenever it look as though Arwen might lose interest.
And now we are in December and Boris has not only been won over to the idea that a bit of a tussle could be quite good fun….
But it is not all about fights. The two of them have become fast friends – unusual for male cats anyhow and even more unusual, I would have thought, when the age difference is so great. But maybe not – maybe it is because Arwen is so much younger that Boris does not see him as a threat and so is prepared to be bullied back into kitten hood!
However, it obviously works and not only do they play a lot but, much of the time they are happy just to hang out – only too often, as you can see, on the stairs making getting up and down with handfuls of coffee quite a challenge!!
