i have two cats. Smores is about 11, and Ace is around 1.
i've had smores since i was 14, and DH has never really complained about her. because she is older (and fat) all she does is lay around, and eat. never really bothers DH, doesn't usually try to sit with him. and she doesn't play as much as she used to. it wasn't really a cat, more like a roommate. she had her life, we had ours.
Ace is a differant story. he was abandoned on someone's property when he was only a few months old. the people took care of him, but they aren't cat people, so they basically said free to a good home, and i jumped at it. Ace is very much a kitten at heart still. he is always playing. scratching. attacking feet from under the covers. he tries to cuddle up with DH, sleeps on his laptop, tries to eat off the kids plate, and just won't stop fighting with smores.
Ace is very affectionate, but unlike Smores, he requires a lot of attention. if i'm trying to crochet, and HE wants to be petted, he'll come right up into my lap and nuzzle at my hands, making my projects impossible. i don't mind though, i've never had such an affectionate cat before. but other times, he makes me crazy. he tears apart and chews on my yarn, he catches mice (not bad) but leaves them near our shoes (BAD), he bullies smores out of eating and drinking water and is tearing apart our furnature. DH called me at work today, to tell me he caught Ace chewing on his cell phone cord, now the cord is completely chewed in half.
can anyone help try to curb some of his habits before DH goes off the deep end?
