The vet told us that Leo was not to do any jumping or running. Gosh. I wonder if the vet told Leo that. He doesn’t seem to have heard those orders or perhaps he doesn’t actually understand that all this playing he does includes “jumping” and “running.” Maybe when you play, it doesn’t count.
As for Junior, he came inside for treat this morning after staying outside all night (that is not his usual routine). We figured he’d bolt for freedom as soon as we gave him his treat/medicine, but before he could even finish his bowl of treat/medicine, Leo ambushed him. The little kitten can be a real pain in the ass hopping on everything in sight. He also has no ethics. The little convict will happily steal Junior’s treat if Junior walks away.
Once trouble started, Randy picked up the little convict and put him in the back room and closed the door.
I got the medicine/treat back in front of Junior, but he was having none of it now that peace had been disturbed. He went to the back door and demanded his freedom. About that time, Leo figured out the bedroom door was closed, and he started caterwauling, demanding to be let out.
Junior stopped meowing as soon as he heard the kitten complaining. He tilted his head. He listened carefully for a second or two and then jogged down the hallway. What’s up with that?
Junior found the bedroom door closed soon enough. He yelled, “Hey. The little convict is trapped in here. Did you know this door was closed? Meow, meow. He can’t get out! Oooh humans! He’s trapped!”
*headdesk* The two of them continued to complain until we released the kitten.
THEN Junior refused treat again and demanded to be let out.
