When we first brought Zoe into the apartment, she and Stella got along really well. Zoe was still such a puppy that she tolerated everything, including this...

which often turned into this...
|Everyone is a cushion in Stella's world.|
But as Zoe grew older and more confident, she stopped tolerating Stella's brazen behavior.

Zoe had to do the same (she often learned the hard way).
|Do NOT mess with Stella.|
Not withstanding the occasional skirmish, by and large, Zoe and Stella live in peace.
|I may be adorable, but I will cut you.|
Although Stella is the more temperamental of the two, Freddie is usually the instigator.
|Tiny but fierce.|
I used to have hope that their relationship would improve over time, but two years later, little has changed. Just today I had to break up a fight that was so intense there were tufts of fur flying into the air. Picture something like this:
