Most of the time our kitties get along pretty good. Sniffing each other and stealing the other ones food. Do we tell them it is from the same bag? They don't care. They are pulling one over on the other one.
When our daughter moved in the kitties had to adapt. Our kitty, Nikki, woke up one day and found strange kitties in HER house. It took some getting used to. She never did warm up to Simon. Two alpha kitties don't get along. So our daughter kept Simon in her rooms during the day so Nikki didn't feel threatened. Worked out pretty good.

We found Nikki at the Animal Shelter. A great choice for us. She was an older cat, we were an older couple who didn't want a kitten. She was about a year old when we brought her home and she had already been fixed. She warmed up to us right away and became a part of the family. We joked and said we got her because she matched the floor in the kitchen. Nikki was sorta a rare cat. Only about 10% of orange tabbies are female.

Nikki died on Sunday morning.
She had not been herself for the last several weeks. She had taken to walking around in circles, only turning right. You couldn't force her to turn left. If you put a treat on her left side, she didn't see it. Give it to her on her right side and she gobbled it up. She didn't like to jump up on the couch unless she had to and didn't go upstairs much lately.She was eating well and no problem with the litter box. We don't know what happened. She had asthma and when she died she was fighting for air. She was fine on Saturday night. She and Firefly were chasing a bug when we went to bed.
