…Skylar’s mom, Michele, in Pennsylvania!
Michele’s name was chosen at random from all entries using random.org.
Skylar’s Mom asked this:
Skylar is a little fellow, only about 7 lbs, but he seems to have the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Actually, he has the bad habit of leaping from the floor to your shoulder to perch there; usually when your back is turned and you least expect it. Im worried that he will do this to an unsuspecting house guest. We try putting him firmly back down on the floor and telling him no and it works for a day or two and then he is back to his old tricks. Should we stock up on shoulder pads and bandages or can this problem be fixed?
Thanks to everyone who entered. You described a lot of behavioral problems, and I’m working on getting your questions answered in coming weeks. In the meantime, you should contact Purina and ask a Cat Chow mentor for suggestions on resolving your cats’ issues.
