Thomas & Phineas
Following on from my previous post on Fight Combinations, I have attempted to limit having only Phineas & Thomas out together. If Cagney is snoozing in the manor then all is relatively calm. However, when Cagney moves, both Phineas & Thomas want to be in prime position & this is when a fight can happen.
Most of the time Thomas flies away but he is not scared of standing up to Phinny & at times he proves this.
Other times, it appears that Phineas is flirting with Thomas & starts to get a bit excited & possibly a bit aggressive. Unfortunately, Thomas has no interest & this sometimes sparks another altercation.
Either way, I have to keep my eye on the two of them.
Though I have tried to limit their “fighting times” & also supervise them in the hope of averting a clash, there are times a full blown battle occurs. Under normal circumstances, Thomas would flee my hand but I know a fight is bad when he does not. In these instances I slip my hand between the two boys & usually get a hard bite (from Phineas) for my trouble.
I have spotted Phineas with a red blob on his toe which must have come from another scrap.
By far the worst outcome so far has been a scratch above Thomas’s eye. Blood poured down from it & initially it looked alarming. Fortunately, it was just a superficial wound. Despite him rubbing it a lot (most probably to get the blood out the way) it was clear his eye was not damaged & he was still flying & landing fine so vision was also not affected.
Apart from the fights….
….all is good.
