Well Monster has excelled himself in his reign of terror. Amber, Spycat and Rosy had been incarcerated in the garage and utility room for three days. They didn't mind at first as the weather was vile. So plenty of litter trays, food, water and cat nip. Also plenty of snoozing going on. Soon as there was a break in the weather though, Monster came and sat menacing them at the window. Lots of eye balling and spats through the glass. Today was lovely so I let Monster into the hallway and closed the door to keep him away from them. Opened the side door - exit the trio. Even though it's a nice day, Amber soon gets bored and comes back. But Monster had been let out again (he's not a house cat and so we had to let him out the other entrance) so he scared her off. She's gone down the hole (the old septic tank) and he'd parked up on top of it. He's a ruddy patient cat is that! I can hear low growling and f*ck off language coming from the hole from Amber. So I coaxed him back into the hallway and thought once he'd gone she'd come in. Nope. She's too scared. Anyway, I left it a while with the door open and him in the hall. So I thought. But nope, he was in the bathroom and wouldn't leave! OH waiting to get into the shower. One very large, angry grey cat in a corner. Tried to coax him out and into the fresh air. Nope. Hiss spit growl. No Amber. One very miffed one eyed Monster. He's gone out finally, and OH got his shower. Oh dear. Why do I bother. Just needed to get that off my chest. And if anyone wants a grey cat I can jiffy bag him up pronto and post first class! (he is a good mouser!). Seriously, has anyone else been in a spot with a terror of a cat? He did the same thing last year around this time, things are so unsettled!!!!
