Devil Cats

I sometimes open my door so the cats can stare out the screen door into the lovely front yard. This neighborhood is FULL of cats. No joke, there are probably five cats visible at any given time. Well, a couple of those are black like my Grace, and one of them just happened to saunter by the screen door yesterday morning. I don't know what happened, but suddenly there was a horrible screaming and things falling down and whatnot. I ran into the living room to see Grace (10 lbs.) chasing Buddy (18.5 lbs.). He's very brave toward other cats and animals, but when it comes to Grace... Well, even I'm afraid of her when she's mad!
Grace gets all slinky and her ears go back and all you see are white fangs and green, evil eyes. It's pretty freaky.
All day they were angry at each other, and all night. Hissing, yelling, the whole shebang. For the most part, one stayed upstairs and one downstairs.
This morning they finally started to chill out. They were in the same room as each other, separated by me. Still growling and hissing, but in the same room!
By the time I came home tonight, they're almost back to normal. They've been running around, chasing each other... Generally having fun. Once in a while they look at each other with narrowed eyes, but it's been mostly calm this evening.
*sigh* Maybe I'll be able to sleep tonight without being woken up by, "RRRRREEEEEEOOOOOOOWWWWWRRRRRRRR!!!!", and "HIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!"

It's funy how you can only see her eyes. :)

I'm glad they're finally getting along.

As an update, this morning I opened the front door for a few minutes and Grace started being angry again. She just can't handle it. I've had to get after her several times this morning. I think she gets confused about the smells outside and Buddy smelling like them... Or something. AAARrrr!!!
