I have mentioned before that Floki is the most difficult cat to control in the universe. My wife and I working together can’t contain him long enough to cut just one of his nails. Forget about all ten. Chris, on the other hand, can hold him down indefinitely all by himself.
He used to hold down Puck by grabbing the scruff of his neck but now it’s Floki’s turn. What I don’t understand is why Floki doesn’t struggle like he does with us. I’ve held Floki by the scruff to no avail. He does cry loudly when Chris does that, which alerts me that I need to go break it up.
I have written a few posts on this subject in case you are bored and want to read on.
That’s so funny……maybe that’s the time to trim Floki’s nails? (just kidding!)
I wish I could train Chris to hold him down when we are ready with the nail clippers.
I sometimes wonder too what they do with each other and why they act when I only touch a paw…
One of life’s mysteries. 🙂
Floki knows that Chris is the alpha male and head cat in the household. You and Rose are just two hapless humans. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
We are way down on the list. 🙂
Seems like Chris is a law unto himself 😉
Manhandled is one thing, cat handled is another MOL!
I suppose cats understand cats better than us mere mortals.
Well, Floki knows that Chris isn’t going to trim his claws.
You have a good point there.
It’s a way to show domination. 🙂 Maybe you should clip Floki’s nails when Chris does that. 🙂
That would be great except he never does it when we want him to. 🙂
Chris is a toughie.
He can be sometimes.
Floki buys into the “bad cat Chris” mythology? That is a curious business. Kudos to you, though, for trying to imitate Chris’ method for subduing Floki. Many times we can learn from out pets!
I was unsuccessful. Maybe I need to use my teeth.
LOL! You may be onto it!
