Both of my sons wanted a kitten, cool, I can do a kitten I suppose. NO they BOTH wanted kittens. Well some strange alien force took over my husband and he said, "why not give them each one, so we don't have to listen to them fight"? What? My husband who has always hated the idea of ANY pets, has just said get them BOTH one?
Well we did! "Ruby & Rudy" were added to our household that already consisted of a black cat named "Midnite" that my teenage daughter claims just followed her home one day and a pitbull that "Santa" brought at Christmas...I swear when I find that Alien I'm going to zap him straight to hell! So now our home is complete with 3 cats, 1 dog and several burried remains of fish, lizards and birds.
Now here is where my story may differ from yours. We all have stories, but mine is unique in that I now own a pitbull named "Baby" who is afraid of my three cats and the wind, terrified to the point of tremors and shakes when they are around, she will try to fit under a tiny coffee table if one of the cats does as much as wink at her! It doesn't stop there...I not only have a pitbull afraid of cats, but I have three cats afraid of mice!
One morning, while laying in bed with my coffee, I heard this scratching noise somewhere in my closet..."OH RATS" I screamed to my husband..."Quick, get it, get it"! He calmly said, "Honey, we have three CATS, tell them to get it, get it". In a fearful attempt to get off my bed and grab all the cats to let them do what cats usually do, I was hissed at, scratched and became involved in one of the worlds most violent cat-fights ever known to man!
Once the cats were locked in the room with us, we both watched eagerly, like if we had front row seats to professional boxing match. It got quiet for a moment, I heard the sound of mouse scurrying around among my clothes, and out of nowhere, like a rocket shot to the sky, my cat Ruby jumped to the curtain trying to claw her way out of the room, then closely behind Ruby was Rudy moaning and howling and believe it or not, hyperventilating! Now he was on the curtain! Midnite took a more dignified approach to her fear of the mouse...she hid.
So now me, my husband, the mouse AND the three cats were trapped in our room, I figured all we need to do now is bring our pitbull Baby into the room with us and see once and for all if dogs know how to climb?
