The Juvenile Delinquent
by Cat Crazy
She’s chased Caesar’s tail almost every night, making him hopping mad. She’s even tried chasing Fireball’s tail, which he normally keeps curled against his side.
She’s thrown water out of the water bowl and flooded the floor multiple times each day.
My friend, who had had the idea to use a dish-drying pad under the water bowl to soak up effluent, actually bought a very pretty pad and we installed it. I found it completely soaked the next morning and water covering the floor around the pad.
Last night, a new, smaller pad was tried. This morning, as you can see from the picture, it was found pulled nearly 90 degrees off the placemat — quite a feat given how heavy the bowls and frame are. And, of course, the pad and the floor were soaked.
The little juvenile delinquent has even been seen climbing up onto the frame that holds the elevated water bowl, so she can get better leverage for scooping out water.
Ah, will the human ever survive the teen years?
