Mojo you are NOT a vampire kitty!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Brat!!

Mojo just doesn't understand that the other kitties don't think it's fun to have her jump on their heads, pin them down, and bite their necks.


Then she doesn't understand why we yell at her to stop when Ginger starts screaming.

She also thinks that any time Trent and Ginger are playing a rousing game of chase (YAY!!! I'm so happy Trent is playing with her!!), she has to jump on someone's head to join in the game.

I know I'm not the only one who has a naughty, bully kitty. At least I hope not.

Tell me about your FRUSTRATING, obnoxious, but of-so-lovable kitty.

If you manage to convince Mojo of it, you can come here and work on Forest next.

He's handicapped, so you'd think that he'd be more timid...but not my Forest. Given half a chance, he'll pounce on Tailer and bite his neck. (Fortunately for Tailer, it's not hard to escape him, though...he just jumps up on the furniture and gets out of reach.) He's such a bossy little bully kitty, he also bosses the humans around. He yells at us to get what he wants, and woe betide the human staff who feeds him late! Who would have expected that out of a cat who walks like a drunken sailor?

My name is Jazz and I am a bully I love Jazz but he is a major toot. He does that exact thing towards Snickers. He also started to do dominating, mounting with Tosh (now to be fair, Tosh did start it). Then there is Oreo who would like nothing better but to see Jazz go away. Oreo is constantly stalking Jazz and attacking him but Jazz does not help things by doing the same to her. Maybe one day there will be peace in the house.

Parrot relentlessly tortures poor Shinobi - watching them reminds me of a little boy in grade school teasing a girl he likes. He follows her around, nose to her behind and crouches down when she gets angry and turns on him. She'll swipe and growl, but he won't fight back. And the funniest thing I think I've seen is when he decides to be brave; he'll find a spot in front of her just far enough away that it's difficult for her to reach him without getting up, and then he'll slowly stick out a paw and poke her! She'll whip her head around and glare at him and he pulls his paw back fast, but then he does it again. XD I think he's just asking for trouble.

Well Popsie doesn't have any other cats to annoy but there's always me. For example, I was trying to sleep in because I got to bed late last night. Popsie would have none of that. So I was forced to get up.

Lucy is the bully here. Yesterday morning, she was being a brat, whining as always. And Carly was in the latest box from Amazon. At least 5 times while I was having breakfast, Lucy went over and whacked Carly. Carly just ignored her.

I think Shark would have to be the main bully out of my three. If she isn't biting your ankles when hungry, or your thumbs to wake you up during the night, she is always batting Arwen around her head or bottom!

Oh, don't let Mojo meet Gigi!

You know this is the first time that I have had two cats and I was a little nervous when I saw Gigi do the same thing. Steve will be walking by and Gigi will pounce out of no where, knock him to the ground, put him in a headlock and they scuffle.

But then, minutes later, they're beside each other on the window looking at the birds. No fear between them, just rough play, especially now that Steve is getting bigger.

At first, when I saw this I thought Steve was the passive one and getting picked on. Now, that they have been here for awhile, I know that's not true. Gigi seems to have more dominant behaviour in the morning and Steve has 'spastic' episodes throughout the day where he's like a bowling ball with fur rolling throughout the house. He knocks into everything - Gigi, furniture, us. He's like a tractor trailer skidding out of control, as he turns corners and doesn't quite make it (most likely because of his big rump.)

Thanks for the laugh!

Sounds like you're loving having the 2 furrballs in the house - they certainly sound like real characters!

Stumpy regularly jumps on Lily's back, and tries to bite her neck, but Lily just completely ignores her, even as Stumpy pulls her over onto her side. It's pretty funny to watch.

Lily and Smudge are big wrestlers, but any time Stumpy tries to play with Smudge, Smudge goes into submissive kitty position cowering in a corner with her bum in the air, head down and ears back. I have no idea why she won't play with Stumpy. Smudge and Stumpy like wrestling the most, but won't wrestle with each other, so Lily always cops it

Actually, we have one of six that ISN'T a bully!

Lazlo bullies Tuxedo and sometimes Spooky.
Tuxedo bullies Spooky and sometimes Lazlo.
Shelly bullies Spooky.
Spooky bullies Flowerbelle because everyone else bullies her (to be fair, it's only when Flowerbelle is in Spooky's place).

Ming Loy apparently looks like Mojo and acts like Mojo! Ming Loy bullies everyone except Flowerbelle (Flowerbelle's too on guard and too quick).

She is always shoving her face into someone's butt - knowing she's annoying them - and when they turn around to give her the glare, a swat or a hiss, she flops on her side and gives them a swipe.

She also walks up to all of them (again, except Flowerbelle) and shoves her nose into their chest. They're all good big brothers and sisters (even Spooky!) and start to groom her. And she nuzzles, and they groom - and then she flops on her side and gives them a swipe! You'd figure they'd learn!

She's also a pig. We feed them all one wet meal of food each evening. She always decides someone else's food looks better than hers, waddles over (for those who don't know, Ming Loy is handicapped) - stands next to someone - and then slooooowly sticks her paw out and pulls their dish over. What Gary and I can't figure is why they all let her get away with it! It always starts a round of "musical bowls," and the only one who gets to eat her whole meal out of her own bowl is Flowerbelle, because she eats up on the table we have in the middle of the kitchen for her (it's how we got her off the counters).

Ming Loy takes special joy in hiding behind things - the banister, a coat hanging on a chair - whatever - and jumping out at whoever walks by and tackling them.

She also absolutely LOVES chasing down Flowerbelle - though Flowerbelle often enjoys it too - because she'll jump up on something and torment Ming Loy, who can't get up after her.

Needless to say, there are tufts of furr lying around on a daily basis - and unless it's pure white, we're never sure who got whacked.

Replace the name Koko for Mojo. Replace the name Spanky with Trent. Replace the name Muddy for Ginger. That is my story.

My friend calls this being "bajiggidy". It's a very appropriate word!

Mojo is such a sweetie-pie!!

Hooray for CH kitties! My Ree-Ree has it also. He turned a year old jan 31st. I call him naughty boy all the time. He too loves to jump on the other cats and bite them. Always instigating!

I was glad he couldn't jump up high either so Fiona and now the new guy Rocko can get to safety!

But Ree-Ree can jump on beds and sofas so they are not even safe on those....they need to jump up onto the kitchen counters to escape...or fight him....or give in. The tolerate him quite well though. I think they know he is special.

The shedding plus fur loss due to bullying make quite a unique carpet in my home.

I can't completely figure out who is the bully in my house...they seem to take turns. Originally it was Bella...and she is still the one to grab Stan around the neck (for a second it looks like she's giving him a hug) and bite him. He never seems to stop stalking her...I'm letting them settle it out.

When they first got here, she was 4-5 lbs bigger, but now they're roughly the same size and I guess they're slugging it out...I just wish someone would win already!

I have a few bullies in my house.

Pooh bullies Trouble.
Tigger bullies Magnum and Takoda.
Magnum and Takoda both bully Mia.
Takoda bullies Trouble.

Trouble doesn't bully anyone unless they come within striking distance. I always say she has this bubble around her and if they pop it she's going to pop them.

Sampson gets this wild hair every blue moon or so and he will bully Takoda, Magnum and Vanna.

Vanna usually bullies Sampson or Mia.

Mia is the victim in all things but she rules the front porch enclosure!

Both of our kitties do that to each other and Angel will sometimes try to do that to me too when I start singing!

Does the fact that Claire enjoys stalking and tormenting Gracie make her bully? Seems like it.

Claire likes to hide around the corner from what whatever room Gracie is in, waiting for her to emerge, then pounce on and/or chase her. She's also been known to lay across the doorway to the room to block Gracie's only way out, then go after Gracie if she tries to make a quick exit. The result is usually some snorting, hissing and growling on Gracie's part. Almost seems like Claire's doing it to get a rise out of Gracie. It works.

Maxi is the chief bully in our house!

When Carter was still alive, she'd jump on his neck, trying to ride him somehow and then kept slapping his face - poor boy!
In the last weeks of his life, he started hitting back, but that didn't make Maxi a good girl, no way!
Now that he's gone, her new main target is Laura who considers herself the boss in here and since Maxi believes *she* is the new boss, there is quite a bit of fighting every day.
Mostly Maxi attacks when her "competitor" is having lunch or trying to sleep - she jumps on Laura's back and at that point all hell will break loose
The worst thing is when she's teased Laura so much that eventually the poor girl will slash out and hubby believes it's Laura who's being mean*sigh*
I've tried giving them a homeopathic remedy, but it only works for a day or two...
That's my two cents about this topic
