It’s Sunday, and that means it’s time for- MOI!
Oh Dog! I am so excited, and just a little bit nervous. I’m SOOOO excited because today marks 100 posts published at Rumpydog! How cool is that! In the words of Rumpy…. woo woo woo!
But the reason why I’m nervous is because today’s question is from a cat about a cat. Well, I’ll let him tell you about it.
Dear DeDe – this is Isaiah, Cleo’s brofur and I have a problem that I hope you can help me with or maybe explain.
Whenever Mom is around Cleo the Diva acts like a b*tch to me. She pushes me off the chair if we are sleeping together and then tries to beat me up. I’m getting a little tired of it, so I do not let her on the bed after Mom is in it.
If Mom is patting me, she runs over and tries to grab the attention from Mom by poking me in the butt with her nose. I should let out a good fart next time she tries that. Can you explain why she is doing that and what I can do to make her stop or give a way to extract revenge.Thanks for your help. Isaiah.
I am not an expert in cats, but I’m wondering if this is simply normal cat behavior. Ya see, I live with two kitties- June Buggie and Bubba. They are 14 year old brothers and they’ve lived with Jen since they were 6 weeks old. And every day they have fought at least once.
Cats are social animals, but with that social behavior comes establishment of pecking order. It’s no different with humans. Every school class has a leader. Every office has a pecking order too. So here’s some questions to ask yourself:
Is Cleo swatting you with claws out or in?
Is this always her behavior with you or only at certain times?
Do the two of you at times groom each other or nap close by each other?
If you really think this behavior is abnormal then your human might want to talk to the vet or do some research online. Otherwise I wouldn’t worry too much about it. Besides, if you’re Mama’s boy, you already have your revenge!
But if some of you cats (or humans) have a different take, please leave a comment for poor Isaiah.
Have a great week everybody!
