Rhea just had to check to see if the big rodent was back where he belonged.  He wasn’t.

I’ve tried a new tactic in the Anna-Rhea standoff.  I just either pull Anna out or drag Rhea in to see Anna so they are in the same room, but I just keep hold of one or the other so they are too confused to get fighting.

The first day there was a little hissing when I let Anna sniff Rhea’s tail and even a swat at it. But the next morning I carried her in again and Anna forgot to hiss at all.

This evening it was a little wierd as I brought Anna into my room and put her down and then when Rhea came up to stare at her from the bed carried Rhea around.  Anna then hid under the bed and then eventually ran back to her room when Rhea and Davout were downstairs eating.

It may not be therapeutic, but neither is what is going on now.

Marshal D does not like being held upside down.

He does like going crazy for a shoestring.

He can go on like this for a while.

But he can be convinced to cool down eventually.

    When I rescued Tony and Cloud neither was fixed and Tony was determined to dominate. Even after neutering it took a while but eventually Tony stopped trying to beat Cloud up and the actually slept together and groomed each other.

      With Anna and Rhea nothing happened for months aside from Anna hissing at Rhea and running off. Rhea now jumps at her and chases her into corners when she gets a chance.


  3. I hope something happens to chill those girls out soon. Silly things. Just think of all the mischief they could get into if they worked together!
    Love feisty Davout!
