Who knew that flirting could cause such mayhem. Indeed, cause such fighting… 😦
They were all out. Cagney & Bezukhov were chasing Thomas, wanting to flirt with him. Phineas chased Thomas to fight with him. Thomas wanted a little flirt with Cagney but Bezukhov wanted to flirt too & of course Phineas was incensed that Thomas appeared to be taking Cagney away from him.
As Phineas was actually out to fight & not flirt, I grabbed him first & put him back in his cage. This should ease things. However, without Phineas, it seemed Cagney & Bezukhov were more likely to fight with each other, over Thomas. It was just chaotic, as can be seen from this shameful video:
As it was easier to catch Cagney & Bezukhov, (Thomas is still suspicious of my hands) I managed to grab Cagney & put him in Thomas’s cage, (the Ferplast has small doors so it was easier to keep him in). I then grabbed Bezukhov & put him in with Cagney. The two of them carried on fighting for a few moments, rolling around the floor, but as they were now separated from Thomas, quickly ran out of steam & finally managed to compose themselves.
This left Thomas out on his own.
Peace reigned, albeit temporarily. He briefly went in the Manor for seed, but otherwise, settled first on Phinny’s cage for a preen, then on the Ferplast.
After a few hours I quietly opened the Ferplast door. Bezukhov came out first. He had a blast with Thomas. They were running around & flirting & getting on very well together:
At an opportune moment I managed to lock Bezukhov in the Manor & then Cagney came out of the Ferplast. Thomas, was more than happy to have a flirt with him:
Again, at an opportune moment, I managed to also lock Cagney in the Manor with Bezukhov. This left Thomas free to go back to his own home. Alone.
In the odd calm moment, I could not help but be reminded of one of my earlier post “Who’s chasing me??“. With all the shenanigans, still no one was chasing Phineas….
At the end of that day I was left confused about the best thing to do next….
