Playing with (Fire) Words

May 9, 2008

A couple posts ago, I referred to a brewing cat fight in the office and felt a good picture would help the story.  I happened upon the following tutorial on how to stop a cat fight and was immediately intrigued and humored by how well the story fit if we replaced “cat” with “woman”.  I realize I’m opening myself up to rebuttal and reprisal from the ladies on the blog, but am willing to take that chance – – –

And men?  I’m thinking there are quite a few helpful hints in here for us. 



If you have a multi cat woman household or your outdoor cats women hang out with other cats women, chances are you will encounter cat woman play. Cat Woman play usually involves chasing, swatting, hissing and nipping.

To a human though, cat woman play can often look rough, so how can you tell the difference?

First off if you know that the two cats women in question have never been friendly to each other then chances are what you are witnessing is fighting.

If you are unsure if the cats women are playing or fighting rely on your ears and eyes.

Screaming is a sure sign that the cats women are fighting. One cat woman being overly dominant is another sign of fighting, usually in cat woman play the roles shift.

Hissing a few times from either cat woman is normal but continued hissing suggests a cat woman fight is underway or about to get underway.

Finally and perhaps most importantly in cat woman play, except for accidents, neither of the two cats women gets hurt.

The best way to separate fighting cats women is through distraction. Making a loud noise or drop something heavy on the floor.

That will usually startle the cats women and send them running in opposite directions.

Shaking a can of food treats (if they are used to that sound) [Ed. Note:  Chocolates?] is another great distraction that will stop the fighting.

Remember cat woman play like any type of animal play is normal and you shouldn’t get involved.

Cat Woman fighting is also fairly common but due to the potential that your cat woman may get harmed or injured, you should try to stop it through distraction.

Do not actually try to physically remove one cat woman from another or you too may get harmed.
