1st Rule: You do not talk about Fight Club.
2nd Rule: You DO NOT talk about Fight Club.
3rd Rule: If someone hisses or hides in a box the fight is over.
4th Rule: Only two kittens to a fight.
5th Rule: One fight at a time.
6th Rule: No shirts, no shoes. We’re nudists.
7th Rule: Fights will go on as long as they have to. Or until The Girl or The Boy thinks we’re getting too rough.
8th Rule: Since there are only two kittens in Fight Club, you have to fight.
Oliver has a black eye. And two scratches. He doesn’t want to talk about it. I can only guess this is because Kitten Thunder has founded a fight club and he’s following the rules about not talking about it.
That…or he kicked himself in the eye with his back claws, which don’t retract.
Yeah, one of those.
“I just don’t want to die without a few scars.” ~Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
I’m not sure about rule #3 — around here, hissing signals the beginning of a fight, not the end.
Well sure, if this was a real fight. But in Fight Club there is always the option of tapping out.
Hmmm… maybe I should encourage my cats to form a fight club of their own.
Ditto—Hissing coupled with the Rottweiler-esque growl of my 7lb cat clearly says “back off” to her idiot brother (twice her size but half her attitude).
The hissing only works because it is Oliver, aka Mama’s Boy, who hisses and The Girl is quick to say “Obi, I don’t think he’s playing anymore. Time to stop.” And Obi is off to sulk.
poor lil’ Oli! And poor Girl, if you decide the scratches need ointment. Cat plus ointment generally equals emergency room.
You should have seen us trying to get this picture taken. It took five minutes and more force to hold him down than when I’m trying to give him a pill. Evidently we also DO NOT DOCUMENT injuries from fight club.
I hope Oliver heals up soon for the next fight. I mean…the next nonfight…because there really isn’t any fighting going on.
He instigated the fight last night while Obi was trying to stretch out under the fan. The Boy rubs Obi’s belly. The Girl gitchies Obi’s belly. Oliver attacks Obi’s belly.
I like rule number 8
