Well. This is unexpected.
Spike's Bitches 25 to Life
[NAFDA] Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risque (and frisque), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.
no doubt. My first top 10 evah.
A first for me, too!
Whoot! New thread smell.
Raining here, it's kind of nice.
Ha! Hahahahaaha! Bwahahahahhahahaheheheheeeheehee.
They're coming to take me... oh, nevermind.
Don't wanna know. Don't wanna know. Don't wanna know. Don't wanna know. Don't wanna know. Don't wanna know. Don't wanna know.
How does a kitty time out work?
Turn a(n empty) laundry basket upside down over the cat. If need be, place something heavy on top to prevent escape. It's preferable to place the time-out basket in the middle of a trafficked area of the home, as the embarassment helps to make the time-out more truly unpleasant. 3-5 minutes is sufficient to cool kitty tempers and redirect their attention to more acceptible behaviors.
What if kitty decides he can't cope with the shunning and physically attaches himself to you?
That might be time-out territory. Or perhaps water-pistol time. Probably time-out, though. Back in Arizona it would have resulted in me saying "Look cat, I love you but I can't cope with you right now," and tossing (well, gently placing) him outside for a while.
I love the smell of new thread in the morning!
Damn you, wee Frank! You got into the top 10 'cause you had a better seat on the train than me!
Cats get embarrassed--who'da thunk?
Cats totally get embarrassed. Even seen one try an ambitious leap and miss? First thing they do is look around to see who saw.
They're such funny little critters, and more social than their aloof, mysterious, traditional reputations allow for. I really do like the thought that even feral populations, given sufficient resources, will form loose social groupings similar to prides. It's fascinating to observe them at it.
