Slow-Mo Sunday

Since the weather is better I'm more outside again. That also means I'm back on staring down duty with Frida and Lilly. They are not introoders like the unknown cat the other day but are our neighbours. I have met them before and quite like them. Problem is, they don't like me - especially Frida, the black cat, is rather hostile towards me. She jowls and hollers when I get too close to her.
Just look at that puffed tail!
A few times she has attacked me when I jumped up on the wall and, ehem, as a consequence I fell off. This wall is their strategic advantage! The one that controls the wall controls the garage roof. And the garage roof is of course THE place to be for a selfrespecting cat: Warm, high up, safe and with purrfect views at the humans and the birdies. I have been up there when the girls weren't outside and can tell you that it's lovely. But they just won't share. I think that's selfish!
Given that they won't let me up on their roof, I'm considering not tolerating them down in my garden.
Today I saw Lilly on our terrace. Can you see her?She's very pretty.After a good and thorough stare down...

...this pursuit ensued. Hahahaha! This is not slow-mo, it's our real speed!I followed Lilly back to the wall. Then Frida showed up.
And I won't mess with her.She's very pretty too - but as I said, not very friendly.
So, this constellation is a common picture these days. Me on the windowsill and Frida and Lilly on the table of their terrace. Or, them on the wall and me in the grass. I'll keep trying to get on that roof... Oh, by the way, Chilli was outside too today. This was her reaction when she saw Frida for the first time. Hilarious, don't you think?!
Purrs to all,
Siena

It's too bad Frida doesn't want to be furiends...then you could all hang out on the roof together...Chilli's face in that last picture is priceless!!

Siena is a very good cat stalker!

I think it is wise not to go after mean cats! And we wonder, do any cats in Germany have tatsaechliche German names?! :) ~James and Fiona

You're a good protector, Siena! We agree that Chilli's face looks very funny in that photo!

Great pictures and video! You really have a lot of neighbor kitties. We have one across the street we see in a window once in a while.

Hi Siena and Chilli!
My favorite photo is of Siena on the window sill with the two little cat faces peering through the railing.

And Chilli sure has beautiful and unusual markings. I like the ginger tabby leg warmers!

That slo-mo movie made Mommy laugh so hard she teared up... I was glued to the screen!

Chilli you do look very concerned.

We think Chili was thinking WTF???? Too funny. We love the super slo-mo real speed action going on there. Lots of drama in your garden!

That tail on Frida says it all.

Great video. Almost Kung-Fu-ish, the humans say. They're silly as always.
