achilles:  your cat is absolutely GORGEOUS! Her coat is unbelievable and I just love her little peaceful face and big ridiculous tail.  

As a lifelong cat person my thoughts are: 

1. is your cat fixed? 

2. is the other cat fixed? 

If your cat didn’t seem distressed, hurt, or scared, it could be the exact opposite.

It could also just be a territorial thing. I used to have an outdoor cat that would sometimes just stare down other outdoor cats. They looked like they absolutely hated each other, but they never actually fought. Just weird cat behavior. I’d continue to check her for injuries and see if she seems afraid, but barring that she’s probalby fine and just being a weird little kitty.

Cats constantly have to renegotiate their territories and power struggles. My cats are dominant over some cats in the neighbourhood and will chase them off their territory, but other cats they are submissive to and will let them come into the house and eat their food even! I have only ever seen one of my cats with a small scratch on her nose so I’m not worried they are going to get hurt; they usually figure these things out without fighting so it’s actually a good sign that your cat has chosen to be submissive instead of fighting. 

If she ever seems injured though, make sure you take her to the vet in case she’s been bitten – cat bites are disgusting and need antibiotics usually. 

Here are my girls when I had the audacity to try to get back in bed:

Totally normal. It’s just typical territory stuff, for some reason they feel the need to stare down whoever is around and you become less important at that point lol. My little orange cat does this ALL the time when he goes out. He will hiss and puff up when he sees a strange cat, and yet if they walk away he will follow them and they’ll just sit there, staring for a while. Neither of them are puffy or upset, no fighting. So I wouldn’t worry at all
