The Furkids Are Winning
First off they had basically been inside for over a week. They had a brief trip outside last Friday when we had the guy come to install the carpet. Now, I canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t say for sure but I think they might be rebelling against being kept indoors.
Pilot has been crying a lot, just walking around crying. Sometimes heÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll just meow asking for something (like water or food) but this is an upset cry. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve also noticed heÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll get all hyped up sometimes and run back and forth across the house really fast. HeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll jump over furniture and slide across the floor with a crazy look in his eye.
One of the good things about them being outside is they spent less time destroying our house inside. We just canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t seem to get Pilot to stop scratching the (new) sofa even though we have several scratching pads. We put up this sticky tape stuff that is suppose to stop the scratching but Aurora has pulled it off.
See Aurora has this thing with plastic: if you leave a plastic bag on the floor she will try to eat itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦apparently same goes for anti-cat scratching tape. I swear they plot against us while they are stuck inside all day and weÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re at work.
As I see it, so far the furkids are winning. They will be official winners when/if we breakdown and start letting them outside again.
