Chief, now an inside cat
May 28, 2012 § 4 Comments
Just look at this scratched-up face. Chief is now an inside cat, but when he gets the chance to go outside, he immediately finds a fight. Take a look at these recent battle scars.
After Chief’s recent escapades (which involved over one thousand dollars of veterinarian bills), he now spends most of his time indoors. Chief’s days now encompass teasing the dogs, fighting with Alexander over who gets first dibs on sleeping at the foot of our bed, and pooping in the dogs’ food dish. Yes, this is how it is these days. Why can’t a cat differentiate between a litter box and a food dish? I’m grateful at least that he is not pooping on Dave’s pillow.
Meanwhile, we’re having to develop strategies for handling a cat who sits on the dining room table (completely unacceptable), rides the dogs like horses (actually pretty funny), and sings opera songs at 2am (not funny at all). Any ideas regarding coping mechanisms are welcome.
