Pike stuck his nose in Iris’ face, so she swatted him on the nose. Pike was like, “Hey, that was rude!” and tried to bite back at her, so she hit him again on the nose so hard that I could hear a paw “WHAP!” across the room. Offended, he lunged again, so she smacked even harder and with her claws this time, and he finally yelped and ran off. He is back to giving Iris a wide berth.
All my animals are just kind of beating up on Pike lately but he frankly deserves it
