3:00am. A soft pitter-pattering begins on our bedroom door. It gets louder. It gets faster. What at first sounded like soft hands, now starts to involve claws and turns into scratching. It's just annoying enough to wake you up... then keep you awake. And it's as persistent. It's our cat, Cornelius!
|insert Jaws theme music here...|
Can you spot the kitty in this picture? Nope? Neither can we at 3am, with no lights on. He's like a little kid ringing the doorbell & running away!
While you're busy hunting him down in the dark apartment with a water bottle, he sneaks stealthily into the bedroom, and hides himself under the bed. And waits until we get back in bed to announce himself. Every now and then you can find him poking his little head around a corner or up from under some furniture, hiding from the water, saying with his little eyes "Don't spray me, bro!"
|"what's in your hand?"|
|"Please don't spray me! I just want to play!"|
- Kitten Mittens
- Remote-controlled water gun
- Placing cell phone by the door & calling it when he scratches (and using a dog-bark ringtone)
- Is it unethical to give a cat some benadryl to get him to sleep?
