We have four cats living with us. Tiger is the shyest one, and Munchkin is the extrovert. Tiger likes to sit in spots where he feels protected. One of his favorites is between the clock and the table in the living room. He is protected on three sides there, yet he can still keep an eye on what is going on. He feels safe here.
Uh-oh, here comes Munchkin, the extrovert. She loves to play with Tiger; I think he is the big brother she loves to pester.
At first he tries to fend her off.
But she wants to engage is a little wrestling match. Sorry it's blurry; my camera wasn't in "action" mode.
Okay, she finally walks away, but he is still vigilant.
I do believe they really love each other.
