This is Evie.
She has got to be one of the most drama filled but sweetest kitty I’ve ever lived with.
She is the SO’s cat but seems to have accepted me. She won the war with Layla and Vincent on who gets to sleep on me during the night so now Layla sleeps on the couch and Vincent sleeps at my feet.
Evie has a vicious scream. It’s something I have recently found out with a new behavior that has developed in regards to how she deals with Vincent. The two do not get along and for the first couple weeks, fought a good bit. Vincent was usually the antagonist so I would reprimand him when I heard Evie screaming. This apparently has given the idea that if she screams, Vincent gets punished. So nowadays, Vincent can just be walking through the room and Evie will start screaming. Never mind the fact that she is clear across the room!
The first time I caught her doing this, I thought maybe it was just coincidence but the second time, I clued in on what was happening and ignored it. A couple days ago, I was in the kitchen with Vincent (the eternal optimist that I’ll drop something yummy) and Evie was in the dining room. Vincent was following me around the kitchen and happened to walk past Evie, who immediately started screaming.
The look Vincent gave her was hilarious, it practically shouted “Oh shut up already!”. He looked at me to see if I was going to do anything and I simply walked away. He wasn’t doing anything and Evie was being a brat. She screamed at him again and Vincent had had enough, he charged her.
This sent Evie running into the bedroom and Vincent gave a half hearted chase before coming back into the kitchen looking for dropped morsels.
Welcome to my life.
