Latest Addition, Part II

In a concerted effort to bring peace to home and hearth, I have been drafted into the United Animal Peace Keeping Force. I am the non-secular department, otherwise known as the military.  Main Lady is the diplomatic and humanitarian department, and I think Cottontail will head up the MASH unit.

Our first casualty was Excellent Rachmaninoff, who was apprehended while creating a disturbance after lights out and is being held on charges of disorderly conduct, fleeing and evading and resisting arrest.

Rachmaninoff in the Hoosegow

Main Lady brought this portable jail home last night on the advice of Ding Bat, her younger and dumber sister in Florida.  The idea is that the military captures one feline and stuffs it into the cage, then captures the other feline and allows said feline to walk around outside the cage getting to know the feline inside the cage.  Positions will be reversed the following day.  Implementation necessitated early release of Excellent Rachmaninoff.  Having consumed my afternoon bourbon, this plan seemed sound to me.  After all, if you can't trust Ding Bat, who can you trust?  Hitlery Klinton?  Here we go...

Pumpkin, Outside the Cage
Excellent Rachmaninoff was confined to another area of the house.  Here is Pumpkin on the good side of the cage.

Ebony, Inside the Cage
Here we have Ebony, inside the cage.  Ebony didn't like this idea much as there is no place to hide and no where to run.  She did tip to the idea that Pumpkin couldn't get all that close to her, so she settled down to wait for the cage door to open.

Feline Diplomacy
I don't know if this is going to work or not.  All I know is that it requires minimal work on my part and if it all goes South, it wasn't my idea.  It was Ding Bat's idea.
