Post 701: “Are you a bad boy?” ~ the black and white truth

I found Andy mouthing and licking the television channel reference. How did he figure out where I kept it?!

"Whatcha doin', Andy?!"

“Whatcha doin’, Andy?!”

"Are you being a bad boy, Andy?"  I think I got my answer....!

“Are you a bad boy?”
I think I got my answer….!

    • In an hour, I have to catch him and his brother to take them to the groomers. Always a challenge. Ask me if he’s a good boy after that! (The first cat is easy. The second one knows something’s up, and becomes cat from hell to catch!)

      (He’s watching birds out the window by my computer right now, but I bet he senses impending capture and hides before it’s over. I’m trying not to give them cues, like me taking a shower and putting on “going out” clothes, though it’d be nice to do that!)

    • All work and no play makes you stupider…! (Good point about television, though! 🙁 ) I recently read it results in more health issues related to inactivity, so there is more truth to that than not!

    • Sorry about missing your comment yesterday! I don’t like the way this particular format handles them because it’s easy to miss comments when a lot come in. Anyway, most of the time, Andy’s actually pretty good. When he is naughty, it isn’t mean naughty so much as acting up naughty. (Unless he’s having a spat with his brother, then he is tough mean naughty. DOugy should know that by now!)

          • Ugh! Plastic! Andy also is notorious for trying to eat wrappers off of granola bars and candy, not to forget the wrappings off of new DVDs. I have to place that sort of trash in sealed containers or risk him actually eating this stuff. I have taken this type of trash out of his mouth. The prospect of surgery to remove this from his system if he actually got it down helps keep me focused on my responsibility toward him. Doug, on the other hand, had as his form of pica this thing about eating cat hair shedded and on the carpet. When I brush him, I have to handle the combed out hair the same way I handle plastic with Andy, and place it in a sealed container. It’s reduced the number of hairballs I step in and have to clean up (urp!!!), so the extra vigilance is well worth it!

          • Interesting. Oliver eats both plastic and cat hair of the carpet lol. Luckily plastic we keep away. He has managed to chew up bags tho 🙁 I bet it’s he fish oil in cheap carrier bags – luckily digestible in the UK btw! So unless they swallow a whole one a tiny bit doesn’t lead to catastrophes
