Cat stash: Dorah didn't want to share

Lady Annabelle isn't quite in the tribe yet. Dorah was in a huff as Annie'd ventured as far as this front yard garden and found her catnip stash. Dame Dorah is bigger than Lady Annabelle (12 lbs. to 7 lbs!), she tried to stare her down, but eventually they shared the stash. There are three wild plants here. Plenty for all!
I've found it interesting seeing how they do or don't all get along.

In the beginning, Annabelle was on the defensive, growling and snarling to keep them at bay. Buster is fine with her, he's a confident boy. Daisy will walk by and give Annie a whack, which is ignored. Even provoking her, Annie remains neutral. Dorah feels threatened, as well. Until now. 
My videocam is in the shop. Hence the photo series! Just flip through them quickly! I used the video of the camera video, but my hands aren't stable.

Dorah found this stash the other day. Annabelle decided it was hers.

Adorable feline shots.

I do think they tolerate each other fairly well! My three cats have all been neutered or spayed, but they are not at all tolerant of another cat or dog! But probably worse with dogs than cats--they all want to go on the attack if a dog ventures in the yard.

Quite a bit of possessiveness ( is that a real word)there, but the last photo showed them almost happy together. It takes a while to get the residents to accept the new one totally, when we adopted a new cat, one of the others never accepted her!!! but Lady A is truly lovely. Do you have to brush and comb her every day?

Neat photos, love your kitties and their playful antics. That's a great header photo also.

They are all such lovely cats ... and it seems to me like they are getting along pretty well. Last week we went to a neighbor's 1st birthday party for their kitten, a Norwegian Coon Cat. He's a big boy! (My husband said "well, I can scratch attending a cat's birthday party off of my bucket list now".)

When I was planting this week, I found Stick Tail's catnip seeds in my stash. He sure enjoyed a good sniff. - Margy

They are all 'fixed' but Daisy seems somewhat aggressive or jealous?

Daisy is the worst for fur loss this season, but normally Dorah sheds the most. I try to brush them all every day, when we don't have appointments.
