Harper Behaving Badly
This happened Monday night and Harper has not been happy about it.
"I am very concerned about this white stuff all over my Outside."
"So why the heck don't you fix it! Fix it for me! I wanna go OUT! Now!!"
"Please? Fix it so I can go out?"
"OK, then if you won't fix it, let me play with the clicky thing."
You may think that my cats are always perfectly behaved and I know everything this is to know about feline behavior.
Monday morning while we were watching (but he was quick about it) Mr. H walked into the kitchen and took a big stinky POOP on the kitchen rug. The litter box being an uncomfortable foot and a half away.
I quickly went and put some baking soda kitty litter on it and whaddya know, the dainty Miss R came along and said "oh, new bathroom? How conveinent!" and she peed a dainty little pee on top of the mess.
This happened once when we were away overnight and my neighbor who was looking in on them informed me she was leaving it for me as cleaning up kitty poop was beyond the call of neighborly duty. At that time I figured they were stressed out by our absence.
But this one has really got me puzzled.
Harper will also invade the Queen's boudoir for a wrassle every evening around 9 PM. I guess he gets lonely. She puts up with it and we know she can lick his butt if she wants to. He also will hop on the bed when she is peacefully sleeping and start doing competitive licking which escalates to wrassling. So I woke around 4 AM to a commotion on my belly.
So as they grow and their personalities develop we can see that Harper is going to be the Big Lug and Ramona is going to be the Peacemaker. Harper always wants to play more and Ramona likes to cuddle up and contemplate the world.
A couple of kittens would keep him on his toes, dontcha think?
