Evening biting
« on: April 28, 2021, 11:47:48 PM »

Iíve asked for thoughts before and Kitz gave me something to think about concerning the fact that Somhairle, one of my two oriental shorthair tomcats, bites Pangur BŠn on the back every day. But something just occurred to me: itís always at the same time every day - when they settle down together on my lap when Iím in bed in the late evening - itís then when Somhairle does the biting thing, and never at any other time. After having been bitten, Pangur BŠn goes and sits on a shelf while we tick Somhairle off, Pangur BŠn has a little something to eat and then he soon comes back to cuddle up on my knee with Somhairle once again. After that theyíre fine throughout the night and they are good together all day. One theory is that itís something to do with an argument over the toasty warm spot - kick the other cat off the patch warmed up, but then why not do the same thing in the daytime? Bizarre.

Sounds like a cats hierarchy thing to me, with Somhairle just confirming who is in charge.

I think youíre right. Why only that particular time of day though ?
