Kitten altercation

I was just in the middle of writing a regular LJ update when I was interrupted by some kitten drama that made me forget all about it.

Just now I heard a hiss coming from the area of my open front door. I looked over and saw Colette standing at the screen door face to face with Mousey (a neighborhood cat, most likely the kittens’ father). She was all puffed up and ready for action. Mousey ran when I approached the door.

A few minutes later he came back, while both Basil and Colette were back at the door. This time the standoff was with Basil, who had his nose right up to the screen. I looked away to type so I didn’t see what happened, but Basil gave a yell, I heard the door bang, and Basil ran under the sofa (discretion is the better part of valor, after all). I went outside and chased off Mousey again. I like him and all, but I don’t want him upsetting these two. Both kittens were extremely jumpy and tense after this, but calmed down after a minute or two.

This was their first experience with an adult cat since I brought them in. Mousey was actually present the night I caught their litter but they obviously don’t remember that.
