i need a cat trainer, and no, this isn’t an april fool’s joke. in fact, this is the opposite of funny. as you’ve seen from my bad cat behavior posts, my kitties can be naughty. however, most the time it’s semi-cute naughty, like awww, those goobers. the side that you don’t see as much is the pest side of ben. i feel bad, because he clearly wants SOMETHING, but i have no clue what it is. i play with him, he gets bored. i pet him, he gets tired of that. he makes a distinct whiney meow noise (oftentimes sounding like he’s saying “raoul”), and if no one responds, you just brace yourself for bad behavoir, whether it be wine glass bumping, cord chewing, or picture frame moving. i love this cat to pieces, but every night he drives me insane. i frequently can’t get things done because he’s causing trouble every couple minutes.
i’ve tried playing with him until he tires (the down time doesn’t last long), we’ve tried ignoring the bad behavior (we end up with broken wine glasses)…i just seriously don’t know what to do. pretty much every evening i end up getting upset and telling him that i don’t know what he wants, and asking him if he could PLEASE just one night be good. sometimes we’re so lucky as to have him nap in the evening, but most of the time he doesn’t.
the worst part is, i feel like it’s just because he’s ridiculously smart, and so he gets bored. i get new toys from him, we try and entertain him, but i just don’t know what to do…
so, in conclusion, anyone know a cat trainer? i don’t know what else to do…either a cat trainer or a cat wheel…anyone want to donate a cat wheel?
