I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t talked about my furkids in a while because well, I really donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to become one of those people. The only thing worse than furmommy blogs are mommy blogs but then that is just me.
Like kids I suppose my furkids are always developing new issues and finding new ways to drive us insane. Why canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t they just be cats and enjoy their leisurely existence?
The new issue that has come up is Pilot is noticeably afraid of Aurora now. Keep in mind Pilot is a hunter and on a weekly basis kills bugs and small animals while Aurora only ever sits on her ass. But I swear, Pilot is very much in fear of her but I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really figure out why.
I get that Aurora hisses at him whenever he gets anywhere near her and sometimes swats at his face. Maybe he just wants to give her the space she obviously needs, maybe heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just being courteous. Either way, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s starting to develop brand new issues now as well.
When I get home I open the door to let him outside and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll stand there for a few minutes just staring out the door. Is he afraid or did he already forget what is beyond the door? Is he so overwhelmed with emotion of getting out of the house that he canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t seem to actually make the leap. Either way, I nudge his butt with my foot and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s off and running.
When he shows up at the door to come in, again heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll just stand there looking really unsure about coming in the house. We have to keep calling his name (but not forcefully) and try to lure him in gently. One swift move and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll bolt off into the woods and we wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see him until daylight.
When did he become so paranoid? Has Aurora just nerve wracked him so much that heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s always afraid? If heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s so paranoid why is he still able to kill small animals like itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nothing? Is this all just an elaborate game to make us do tricks for them? Do they plot against us during the day while we are at work?
