Misplaced Aggression

Normally, all the cats get shut out of our bedroom at night because Chris goes through periods where he will not stop biting my nose or digging his claws into my face and neck. Usually this happens early in the night or around 4 a.m. or both. I often think that I can pick him up and put him closer to the foot of the bed where one or more other cats are resting peacefully. That works for about ten seconds and then he’s back. So now all the cats are deprived of our bed for the actions of one.

I do break this rule occasionally, like last week when my wife went on a business trip for a few days. Chris annoyed me every night but I only was pushed too far one night when I had to kick everyone out and close the door. They all had to leave because there is no litter box in the room.

I don’t remember if this was the indecent that caused their removal but one night while Chris was being especially annoying, I had my arm between me and Chris to try to block the poking and biting. That is when Floki decided to play with Chris’s tail. This always upsets Chris and he started growling and kicking me with his back feet like I was the one fighting with his tail. At one point he really got angry and scratched me pretty good, or would that be “pretty bad?”

I think I need to find Kevlar pajamas for next time I leave my door open at night.

    Ouch. I can see why you’d have to evict them from the bedroom.
    Mine just tend to use me as a trampoline in the middle of the night when they’re having one of their mad half-hours. Other than that they just hog the bed a bit 🙂

    If you find any of those kevlar jammies, let us now. Mom would wear the pants all the time. All we can say is…you let them in the bedroom, you suffer the consequences. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
