Stubborn Cat Chris


Chris has always been a stubborn cat. It has always been an impossible challenge to get Chris to behave in a way that we want him to behave. Usually the problem is trying to get him to stop doing something but sometimes getting him to do something can be equally difficult. Like the other day when I was trying to vacuum and he refused to move from his spot. Most cats are afraid of the vacuum but Chris is much more concerned with hanging out near his food bowl (which I picked up before vacuuming).

Who else has a stubborn cat? Or should I ask who doesn’t have a stubborn cat? I don’t think dogs are as stubborn as cats but I’m sure they are out there too.

    OMC…Giulietta is like that with the vacuum. Does not phase her. Calista Jo is the most stubborn of our cats, but they all are. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

    I know a few dog breeds who are per definition stubborn, the most infamous might be the Dachshund. Those are cats in Wiener-Form (I mean the sausage, you heathens) – and you need a lot of patience to teach them to behave.

        My paternal GPs had a Dachshund when I was a kid. Ill-tempered dog, though it was never mean to me. My grandmother always said…”You could put one arm around her but not two. She would start to growl.” Then, later on, they got a Schnauzer. That one wasn’t ill-tempered, it was vindictive, straight up. If she left the house, he would retaliate by pooping & peeing, even if he’d been out prior to her leaving. He did it for spite…and did it routinely for 19 years.

    Hee! Hee! Hissy Old Licorice used to roll in front of the vacuum. You could NOT continue until you got the upholstery brush out and vacuumed him! It was a real pain if you were trying to do a “quick” touch up before someone came over! Chris has always reminded me of him. The current cats here are wussy!

    That’s so hilarious…….the minute Teddy hears the vacuum being pulled out of the closet he goes to the basement. He knows he’s safe down there! Chris is DARING you to vacuum his tail into the machine. HAHAHAHA

    You are like me, C. Mom has to vacuum around me. Then when I get up, there’s a dog-hair-throw-rug left behind and she has to get the vacuum back out. The robot vacuum also works around me. I’m pretty sure it draws me into the floor plan like a piece of furniture for next time.

    Love and licks,

    When Snoops hears the vacuum, she waits to see where it’s headed before deciding whether to leave. No point wasting unneeded energy I guess
