    There's been a rabbit out by the hay storage area, it freezes when it sees me , then takes off full speed, when I start talking to it, it acts like......phew, I barely got away!

    I'm assuming it's always the same rabbit, same size but, there's probably a lot more living somewhere over there.

    We have a fairly large 3-legged cat. We got him from the foster family right after he was released by the vet when his leg was removed. We nursed him back to health and we've had him not for 8 years. He's a stinker........a spoiled stinker. He's Siamese and very vocal. Our other cat hates him ........in 8 years they haven't learned to get along.

    Hoover, our handicap, was brutal on our other cat, Einstein. He would sneak attack Einstein and beat the crap out of him, push him away from the food dish, and made poor Einstein's life miserable. We had Einstein a couple of years before Hoover showed up as a kitten.

    Einstein has gone over the Rainbow Bridge, and Hoover is currently an only cat, somewhere around 9-10 years old. But, if things go as planned, another stray will be joining our home, who is only about 2, rather small for his size, but will likely kick some butt if needed.

    Some cats are the definition of 'doesn't play well with others'.

    Our girl kitty adored her pal Bob. He went over that rainbow bridge at 17 years old and we thought we'd have another pal for her when we got Spidey. No such luck. She is 14 years old and we've had her since she was a few months old (rescue kitty). Spidey won't allow her to get to her litter box, so we have it high on a table.......he can't jump (heh). She lives on the high ground, he lives on the floor. They exist in the same room but we separate them at night. Every so often, I come into my office and discover he's in her bed on my desk (looking innocent of course) and she is sleeping over by her litter box. If they get close enough to tangle........there is hugging, rolling, screeching and a big pile of cat hair on the floor where they fought.That rarely happens. Both of them are 10 - 12 pounds. Spidey is 12 years old give or take.
