Naughtiness Before Christmas!

Naughtiness Before Christmas

These three have been really ramping up the naughtiness lately. Yes, even mild and mellow Cody.
Toeshee has been chewing on the tree needles every chance he gets. His squirt bottle of Holy water is getting a workout! He's still jumping on the other kitties, though not as often. He still is rather violent when he does it though. He is very aggressive when he is being restrained from bad behavior. This morning my daughter grabbed him before he could run out the front door when my husband put the mail out. He sunk his claws into her and left a nasty puncture wound in her wrist. We cleaned it out and put antibiotic ointment on it. She actually cried because it hurt! :( Now, we must watch for infection. I hope it doesn't come to that. She said she wishes she hadn't brought Toeshee here now. :( He is so hard to deal with sometimes!

Cricket peed on a little quilted bag that I keep some decorative crafting papers in. She had been angry because she and Toeshee were wrestling in the living room and we had to break it up. Then she went into the room where I store my crafting supplies and I scooted her out so I could close the door to keep the drafts down. Well, Cricket hates to be told what to do. The next time that door was opened she managed to find the time to pee on my bag. I had to throw out a lot of the papers, including a really pretty sparkly one. The bag is now drip
drying after being sprayed with Spot Shot.

Cody gave me quite the bit of worry the other day. He got outside when my daughter came home. She said one second he was there and the next gone.
I looked out all of the windows, opened the doors and called for him. It was so cold! Just when I was ready to bundle up and venture out he came to the back door. "Cody
, get your fuzzy butt in here!"
He knew that tone. "Oh, oh! Momma's mad!" He turned away! I calmed down and said sweetly, "Cody honey, come on. Are you hungry?"
It worked. He sauntered in and I firmly shut the door. "Don't you ever scare me like that again buster!"
Cody gave me that fake contrite look as he happily munched on his food.

I swear when Sandy Claws comes, Billie is the only one who is getting treats and nip!

Sigh... I feel better now. Venting done. :)
Hugs to all, even the naughty ones!

It looks like you need to remind them that Santa Claws will be here soon and they may not get treats and/or nip in their stockings if they keep misbehaving.

Good little Billie for behaving!

I am pretty sure that you only have to be Nice for a couple of days before Christmas. Because Santa Claws does not have time to keep track of more days than that.

Oh no! Toeshee sounds so much like Dante!! He gives us puncture wounds too! Hope all the cats calm down soon, and have a merry christmas to you all!!

Everyone will get treats from Sandy Claws I'm sure!

And Little Isis says NO ONE HERE ever gets in trouble like that!

It seems to be the mischief-making season at your house. I hope all the kitties calm down soon.

That is 3 misbehaved kitties and one good one. If the misbehaved ones keep it up there will be no pressies under the tree for them!

Oh goodness! Toshee sounds like quite the wild boy. But we think they have hearts of gold deep down and the rambunctiousness will pass. (we hope).

Oh Lorianna! What a time of it you are having with feisty cats. Have you got a Feliway Diffuser, that's very good at calming cats down (it often stops the upset peeing too) It will make them all feel a bit more secure. It does sound as if Toeshee maybe wasn't well socialised or had a rough time from cats at some point. I hope your daughter's wrist is ok. Would a time out room work for him?Sometimes it takes forever for a feisty one to learn manners and calm down with other cats Best of luck sweetheart! Lets hope Toeshee gets some seasonal goodwill running through his veins soon!
