This is another cattoon from the days of old (i.e. maybe 1.5 years ago). Again, not sure about the no whiskers thing.
So Duncan and Smudge like to romp and wrestle but it is mere playtime. They are brothers and love each other. Well…I think Duncan might just tolerate Smudge actually.
I say this because I have noticed a pattern.
Duncan can be contentedly sitting and Smudge will come up and either lay near him or just stand there and start licking him. It starts off nicely and then turns into bites. Duncan wants nothing of it and walks away. And then who finds a new seat? That’s right. Smudge sits down in the exact location Duncan was previously sitting. It’s a non-mutually agreed upon displacement. If Smudge was a kid he would totally love it when he got to class and found his seat still warm from the previous class. Gross.
Other times Smudge will just up and chase Duncan around, generally biting him on the be-hind or legs. They’ll run around a bit and then stop for a break – but Smudge does not honor this cat code and keeps nibbling. Duncan does not like this.
This drawing shows the day when playtime is for keeps (What a weird phrase. Does that refer to someone keeping all your jacks or marbles? Aw, fiddlesticks!).
Duncan would probably be victorious because he usually wins playtime battles. Generally Smudge is supine with a fast black paw slamming him in the head before he has a chance to blink – even though he is the aggressor most often. Really, does he not learn?
But I don’t know…Smudge is devious and sneaky. He might be the one to point and say, “Hey is that string cheese?” then go for the Achilles.
Perhaps a cage match cat fight is in our future? I think they might even
hate like to dress up for it!
