Lately your Omnibus Driver has been traveling a lot on the weekends, and the divine Miss Marilyn Monrex has stayed home to guard le (tres) petit chateaux. This weekend, Buckaroo Bonsai and I decided to conduct a little 'speriment and see how she and the charming Miss Tiger Boots would get along.
Accordingly, I packed up a small litter pan, fleecy kitty bed and collapsible show "cage" made of ripstop, mesh and clear plastic (in case a "time out" corner was needed), popped the Divine Miss M into her carrier, and headed off to Bonsai Central.
Because the two girls have such different purrsonalities (Tiger Boots being a more 4-on-the floor, occasional lap kitty; the Divine Miss M being much more of the "velcro" purrsuasion), I was hoping that their purrsonalities would harmoize, rather than clash. But, having owned, bred and shown cats for a long time, I made sure to hedge my bets and provide the Divine Miss M with a safe house if a round or two of Rock-em Sock-em Robots turned out to be the main event.
Prepare for the worst.
Hope for the best.
Much to our surprise, there's been a minimum of hissing, no spitting, and no swiping at each other. The "time out" corner has gotten no use. They're more interested in each other than afraid.
The omens and portents are looking good all the way around. I see more travel in both our futures.
