I am the only one that thinks Miss Kitty's been banned whenever this thread pops up?
I do look forward to the FFF cat getting out of the kitten stage. He still likes to play the Venus flytrap game, where he rolls over on his back, exposing his tummy (which has recently become enormous.) You can't help but rub a giant kitty tummy. But then he clamps down with all five of his sharp ends--chomp. It's very cute, but it's also difficult to escape unscathed.
Since the cat in question is a known violator of $ furnishings (and I blame the owner BTW, as I do w/ all poorly behaved pets and children), I don't think BR is being unreasonable to want to protect her house from its new tenant.
Do they really cut its toes off when they declaw it?
A friend on another board describes that as the Venus hand trap. For some cats, showing the belly target is always going to be a sign that they want to play, and the bestest thing ever for them then is a stuffed animal they can pounce on and bunny kick to their heart's content.
...you have been on a roll lately!
BR...keep us posted on this cat visitor. And, please tell me you will not be paying to have BJ's furniture and linens replaced. She needs to live with it.
I've thought about the declawing issue for years. I'm always getting scratched, hissed at, my leg's getting sprayed so she can make sure that everyone knows that I'm "her" territory. Finally I had enough and went to the Vet.
He told me my wife wasn't nearly as bad as I have described...
