There was a bit of a ruckus this morning, although I didn’t see it. However I was able to hear it from across the house. There was a sound like galloping horses that started upstairs and went down and around and ended in a hissing from someone. I could see Gus right with me so he wasn’t involved.
When I got to the overlook I could see in the living room below that Calla was down under her little table and Julius was there a foot away looking at her curiously. She didn’t seem to be too scared or mad. I think most of the noise was Julie tearing around and somewhere in the process he chased or startled Calla, hence he hiss and retreat to a safe place.
I don’t think he was chasing her intentionally, although it has happened a time or so in jest.
Julie has been doing those runs more frequently these days, but in the other cases I was at the end of the run to see it. He comes flying down the stairs, often runs in a big circle downstairs and sometimes ends with a plunge through the cat door to the garage.
I think he’s getting a bit stir crazy with the poor weather.
