See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
~Rani is my girl who will soon be a mother~
I have typed before about our Brat cat, Poppy and how if it is broken, knocked over, or if a cat is where it should not be it is him and how if we do not know about it Mali will tattle on him. We use a squirt bottle to punish him. It does not do a lot of good but it sure as heck makes us feel better.
t is this same cat Rani has decided is her baby. She follows it all over the house whining, licking and making a pest of herself over. Two days ago, he was being especially a pain. Mali was tattling right and left, he was into everything he should not be; and so, he was getting squired. Having us squirt her baby was upsetting Rani.
That evening was no better. All the dogs were settled for the night and Steve and I settled to watch a little TV before bed. When Poppy decided to stir things up. He started with clawing where he should not. Steve picked up the squirt bottle but this time Rani saw him and ran in between Shielding Poppy from the squirts of water. A fluke Steve thought, not me I saw her expression as she look back over her shoulder at Steve.
No more than then seconds later and that Brat cat, started to tear up a box that had come in the mail we had not yet opened. Steve picked up the squirt bottle, Poppy herd the sound and started to run, Rani intercepted and stood over him, then turned to look at Steve. Bingo! Poppy got it too, ad proceeded to be a Brat, he got on top of the coffee table right in front of us. Mali this time woofed as she could not take this blatant Cat naughtiness. Rani started to get up when Steve reached for the bottle, she looked at Steve and then at Poppy and than back at Steve. Steve relaxed, Rani relaxed, Steve started to reach for the bottle and Rani got to her feet. It was a stand off.
Poppy waited for Rani to come save him. I told Steve not to do it, because Poppy would just continue to be a Brat and rani would continue to save him and we would be creating a huge problem, let it go for tonight. Poppy wandered close to Mali who gave him a surprise guerrilla jump with a loud Woooo, sending him running out of the room. The rest of the night settled back down.
