I’m afraid this tale has a hint of truth to it. I did indeed find a rubber band in the litter box one time. It’s pretty much the only odd thing I found in there other than you know, the usual.
Hazel has to be careful. If she gets too excited about something and moves too quickly, Olive senses the excitement and mistakes it for playtime.
It usually happens when I get home and Hazel comes running to see me (yes, some cats actually do that). Olive immediately comes running and leaps over the top of her and sometimes even makes a 180 degree turn, runs back and jumps over her again.
Of course Hazel hates this and will have to slow down and “army crawl” on her belly so that Olive loses interest. It usually works since Olive has such a short attention span.
When we first got Olive, she tried to be a lap cat. The only problem was that Hazel is on my lap constantly and doesn’t like to share.
Any time Olive tried to climb on and be part of the group, Hazel would get furious and do the “pat, pat, pat, pat, pat” thing that I put in so many of the comics. I would always break them up and try to explain to Olive that she could sit with us, but she would always just accept that it wasn’t her spot and go sit by herself. It’s silly, but it still makes me a little sad sometimes.
