Here is a post from April 2016 for Throwback Thursday. Chris still scratches at the door sometimes but he has settled down in his old age.
Sleeping used to be difficult with an annoying cat around. Chris would keep us up at night, especially me, by biting my nose and digging his claws into my neck and back. We tried closing him out of the bedroom but he would go through great lengths to get us to open the door, including digging up the carpet. Since we no longer have carpet at the door, sleeping has been easier. We still put up with him crying at 4:00 a.m. but that is nothing compared to what we used to go through.
Unfortunately, our new home has doors that are not made using the highest of quality standards, so since Chris couldn’t dig down and destroy the carpet, he started digging up to destroy the door.
We decided to replace the door, along with the bathroom door, and put in something a little better. I’m not exactly a handyman…

Uhoh…….the photos say it all!
We’ve had some of that kind of redecorating here too!!!
Yes, I am sure it is common.
Glad he has since calmed down. 🙂
Thanks. I guess age does that.
Naughty Chris! You need those metal kick-plate things on your doors!
You are right but how funny would that look on a bedroom door?
Very funny indeed, but you appear to be in an Option-Free Zone. 😬
Snoops and Kommando have been with us 10+ years, so they’ve settled in. On the other hand, Sgt Stripes is still learning “no”
Good luck with that. 😀
