Ming and Jimmy on the kill

Ming & Jimmy
Jimmy (a.k.a. Tigger) leaves Ming with the remains of a freshly killed plate of cat biscuits. Both finely tuned hunters, they can detect the sound of a fridge door from over a hundred metres away and materialise beyond apparently closed doors.

Roger Deakin writes (in Notes from Walnut Tree Farm):
'Stroking two cats at once is like bonding both terminals of a car battery. They short-circuit and you get a shock, or a flash, or both.'

Have you tried this?
Does it work?

RR — you think I'd try it after a description like that?! I've seen fisticuffs between these two, though, and despite his age, Ming's still alpha male.
