As usual, my cats are a fantastic source of drama. The latest saga started out innocently enough. Kitten, being the sweet cat that he is, made friends with a local stray cat by chirping at him through the window, rolling on his back, and generally wiggling appealingly. The stray cat started to hang around by the window and they smiled at each other. “How cute, Kittten made a friend,” I thought, “perhaps I should encourage this.” I started setting out food for the stray, but it turns out that made kitten jealous, and you wouldn’t like him when he’s jealous. He has a major Scrappy Doo-complex and turns into a fuzzy wiener of death, launching himself at the poor bewildered stray whenever he got a chance, and fighting him through the window all the other times.
I should also mention that Nom also tried to fight the stray through the window. The stray sat and blinked through all the assaults, and Nom lost every one of his fights, often cowering in terror.
Now I feed the stray out of sight and tranquility has returned to my flock of cats.
My latest mini is the Ghostly Summons from Reaper Miniatures. It has a lot more pathos that the usual gaming sculpt – the glowing lady has been summoned to a higher plane, but her friends are headed for a fiery place.
