Guest Blogger S’More Cat: Bad to the bone!

January 10, 2013

..Meow!  S’More Cat here.  

No, I don’t have my own blog yet.  But I do have a hidden camera in the kitchen.  And I caught this beast looking for a feast…

Everyone loves Cookie, but we don’t love her behavior in the house.  Quite simply, Cookie is a thief.  She jumps up and leans on the kitchen counters and tables, looking for food to snatch.  One day, she somehow opened up a paper bag filled with bagels and ran off with one, without pulling the bag off the counter. She’ll do this  sort of thing even when our family is RIGHT THERE in the kitchen with her.  Every pet knows you don’t do that, right?!  But not Cookie.  So, these days she is getting a lot of corrections and a lot of puppy time-outs on her mat by the kitchen door.  She also wears a leash and correction collar 24-7, so that she can’t scoot away after she’s been naughty.  Otherwise, it all becomes a big game to her.  She loves to run circles around the dining room table, because it’s almost impossible to catch her there.  When you do catch Cookie in the act of being naughty, and correct her, you usually get a look from her like this…

…as if to say, “What?  Did I do wrong?”  My people-parents say she is very stubborn and wants what she wants but she will have to learn.  To help them they have hired an obedience trainer to work with Cookie on “her issues” which these days include not coming reliably when called, barking her head off when the doorbell rings, getting up on the couch (strictly forbidden for her, but OK for me, ha!),roaming around the kitchen and snatching whatever food she can, and most disturbingly, CHASING ME!  Progress is being made, but it is slow.  Her trainer is great and says that Cookie is a very sweet, and strong-willed dog, but at just a year, Cookie is still very young yet.  We all do notice that she is well trained now to go to one of her mats or by the people’s feet and chill out in the house.  But she still chases me every chance she gets.  Hiss.

The good news is, my stock in this family keeps on going up.  They are constantly telling me how great I am and how I never destroy anything or give them a moment’s trouble….
