Loki arrived in July 2013. Rescued from the mean streets of Elgin, he has never ever really got on with Wu, our resident rescue fat cat. Everytime he saw Wu (short for Wussums), Loki’s ears would prick up and he would chase him meaning business. We tried many methods to stop this behaviour with absolutely no success. It ended up with Wu living in our bedroom upstairs and coming and going through the velux window at night. Not ideal, but we all managed and Wu stayed alive timing his goings out when he knew Loki was safely in the house.
Previously, ie pre-Loki, Wu had been a fairly sociable boy, living on my computer chair and coming for walks or rides with the dogs. But the arrival of Loki quickly put a stop to that.
I think it was the arrival of Lambie last spring that made Wu realise that, if a teeny tiny lamb could live in the kitchen and stay alive, why on earth was he running away from Loki. It was the running that made Loki give chase.
So Wu gradually became brave again and started by coming into the sitting room, walking slowly past Loki and now, guess what, after two and half years, they all live in peace and harmony. There is no chasing.
Our First Family Photo (so proud *** sniff ***). This is a beautiful moment. Wu is back to normal.
(Note to self – I really must clean the house, but then again.)
This is Wu’s Bond moment. “So, Meester Bond, we meet again…..”
I am pleased with Loki. He and Wu have finally reached a truce. Like I said, it only took 2 and a half years!
