The weekend started out kinda rough. I had to go to the v-e-t on Saturday. The Mom wanted to make sure everything was ok with me because I had such a bad week. The wonderful Dr P looked me over real good and then she and Dad and The Mom talked lots about what might be going on with me and why I'm taking it out on Titus. They decided that for now they were going to treat it as me getting agitated by the roaming neighborhood cats. Dad and The Mom went out Saturday night and bought more feliway diffusers and some spray for the yard. She sprayed the front yard with this citronella/garlic spray all around where she'd seen those roaming cats. But The Mom was still freaking out because she wasn't 100% sure what was going on.
But then, we got a break in the case! Saturday night, Dad opened the door to let Titus out before bed and immediately slammed the door shut. There was a giant cat lying on the patio RIGHT BY THE DOOR. INSIDE the fence. So The Mom locked me in the litterbox room AGAIN and she went outside. The cat had moved to the outside of the fence, but he was still hanging around. The Mom grabbed the squirt bottle and started squirting the cat and he wouldn't leave! He just walked under her car and laid there, staring at her. She kept blasting him with water and he wouldn't budge. She finally got him to move farther down the driveway and then came in the house. I was real HISSED OFF, so we all had to be separated for the night.
Yesterday, The Mom was talking to Aunt Jen and she suggested that since that cat has been so close to the house, Titus is probably picking up strange cat smell on him when he's outside doing his bizness and then bringing it into the house which is really hissing me off. Plus, The Mom is now convinced that he's eating that strange cat's kitty box crunchies out of the flower bed. Which is contributing to the strange cat smell he's bringing in the house.
So Dad and The Mom are working hard to keep those roaming cats away from Casa de Furry Kids and they're spraying all kinds of feliway all over the furniture and we're just hoping that those cats leave us alone soon. It's kinda fun to be hissed off once in a while, but I'm getting real tired of being hissed off all the time. Go away, roaming cats! Go away!!!
