Showdown At The KT Corral


Hi everyone Katie here.  Welcome to the KT Corral.

MANY of you have been asking for photo documentation of the daily showdowns between me and Waffles Too. I can tell you're worried I'm letting him walk all over me. Worried that my impeccable manners are getting in the way of a good whap. Well if that's what you're thinking, think again.

Make no mistake, Waffles Too knows who's boss around here. His training is progressing nicely. Even if he grows up into a big ole tub of orange cat twice my svelte size, he KNOWS who's in charge.

The showdowns always play out the same way:

         1)  Waffles Too finds me and acts all nonchalant like he doesn't even know I'm here. 


         2.1)  In a feeble attempt to appear dominant, Waffles Too makes the first move.
         2.2)  Notice the blur of my right paw as I anticipate his play.


         3.1)  Knowing he's no match for me, Waffles Too initiates the side drop-n-roll.
         3.2)  Notice how cool and calm I remain. Not even a single airplane ear.


         4.1)  Submission. 


         5)  Y'all come back now, y'hear?

  1. We don't know about this. We think Waffles Too is trying to trick you into thinking he's giving up and then he'll pounce!

    Nice work Katie! We'll see what happens in the next round. You don't think he's letting you win...do you?

  5. Wow, he is getting big already! You had better hope he does not realize that!

  6. Whew. You have no idea how relieved I am to see this. Thank Ceiling Cat that little whippersnapper is learning who's the boss of him.
    And he better not forget it.

  10. Hi Katie, we're glad that Waffles Too is learning the rules of the roost. A good whap in the head for nothing at all always does wonders to reinforce learning and submission.

  12. Good work Katie! Do you see how BIG he's getting?!?!? But you will always have suPURRior brain power! Have a great week!

  13. Great job making sure he knows who is the boss, Katie. He's getting so big, he's going to be harder to put he smack down on soon, so it's a good thing he knows where he stands now!

  23. I never had any doubts that you were showing him the lay of the land. Now if only he would find his way to another land - MOL sorry I don't think Glogirl will allow

  24. You stand up for yourself Katie - Waffles is all hot air!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  25. Submission? I think that's downright worship!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The submissive drop....or IS it??? :-)

    Here's an excerpt from an article I just read:
    "Why a cat would expose her belly depends on the immediate circumstances in which she finds herself. If she’s in a face-off with another cat, rolling over onto her side to expose her belly isn’t a sign of submission, but rather, the ultimate defensive reaction which communicates to the opponent that all weapons (teeth and all claws) will be engaged if a fight is to become physical." Hmmm.... Here's a link to the article: http://www.catbehaviorassociates.com/why-you-shouldnt-pet-your-cats-belly/

  27. Love this! Autumn used to always do the drop and roll but Nicky would attack anyway. You still have those lady-like manners. I wanna see a good whap whap whap!. Hey, is W2 sticking his paw in the electrical socket. Heh!

    BTW, love the comment above. The peeps KNOW they shouldn't pet my belly even if TW goes and pets P-Kitty's belly.

  28. Waffles Too is getting so big, Katie! You will always be the Top Cat, nobody can take that billing away from you.
    Isn't it fun to have him around though? I'm telling ya, two against two...it's a good thing! :)
    (Don't ask Coco, she'll totally disagree).

  29. There's a saying in kitty land"Hell hath no fury like a woman cat scorned!"don't worry Katie you'll always be the top cat in the Town House,xx Speedy

  30. Ha woo. "Airplane ears"! Is that like doing Malamute Ears? http://armyoffourdigest.blogspot.com/2010/08/making-progress.html
    That's what we call them.
    Black and Whites rule!

  31. Hey beautiful, I just love you in that hat! It certainly is good you put Waffles II in his place and let him know right off just who rules the house. I do predict tho, that eventually you'll give in and play a little with him anyway - just a couple of playful paw bats.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You are wise to train him while young...he looks like he could be a good match for you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Katie, Looks like you have Waffles Too trained very well to give prior to any fisticuffs. Good job. Enjoy being #1 kitty!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Maxwell: Dood, seriously, what's with giving Katie jazz-hands all the time???

    ReplyDelete
  35. You STILL need to watch out for the little pipsqueak! He might still keep on trying til he.... He WON'T win, right????

    ReplyDelete
  36. I wasn't the least bit worried about him running over you Katie!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nice paw action Katie, I do suggest you might want to use a bit more hook with your right...catch him right on those little whiskers, that has to hurt or at least leave a bruise...heh...heh

    ReplyDelete
  38. I see you have Waffle Too under control ( for the moment:)
    XOXO

    ReplyDelete
  39. I believe you know what you are doing, Katie. I bet you picked out that oh-so-stunning hat all by yourself, too.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Katie, that's a great thing to see. We're so happy you have everything in hand, err, paw. Ateret wants Waffles to know he should skip the stupid stuff and just submit - it's faster and saves time.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well done Katie. You have to keep the little upstart in his place.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love the last picture. Loos so cute in a cowboy hat.

    ReplyDelete
  43. We watched the trailer to the movie about the key. Sounds like a pawsome video. Thanks for telling us about it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Nice whap. Still, we would like to see a COMBINATION move of several whaps and a jab, perhaps. Wilbur tries that little side-slide-y move over to Skootch, but he then turns into the aggressor. BAD kittens!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh boy, it's excitings, like a movie! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. yoW! Katie, you are good! Way to cat-handle that little varmint. We couldn't help ourselves and were hissing for you :D

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  47. Excellent Katie! Mes knows that intimidation now works! Kozmo is 2 and a half times bigger than me, but he is still scared!
    Good Work!
    Kisses
