As you know Zach is the sheriff of the house. The other day Zoe was under foot begging for new water. Well, unfortunately I stepped back and stepped on Zo. She cried as expected and Diamond was beside me, again as expected. So Zach comes running to attack Diamond but I snapped a stern "Zachery!" He stopped in his tracks and looked at me. I pointed at him and Said "NO" I also told him it was fine in a calm voice. Leaned down and petted Diamond. He then responded with a sharp meow and walked away. I have been working on this for a while. It doesn't stop him from charging her but it does distract him from attacking. And maybe he might think if Mom is alright then maybe the situation is alright. So this is good. We have went a whole week with Zach having the red hinny for Diamond and it isn't pleasant. As I said before I have seen Diamond get fed up and growl and snap at him (not getting him) before. How ever and what ever I can do to keep the peace I will do.
Zach- Hi my name is Zachery, people call me Zach. I have a sickness called control issues. I want to control even the uncontrollables. The one thing I do that proves it the most is I do bed checks. Yep you heard me....I sniff Gris on the sofa, before retiring to the bedroom. Then I check on Zoe, Mom and then demand that Mom pick up the covers so I can sniff Diamond. I will not rest till I know everyone is in their sleeping spots.....tucked in for the night.
Do you have a sickness? Whats the one thing you do that is proof?
Zachery! Please don't get your butt chewed by that....DOG! Watch out! Er, Keep Calm And Carry On. Heh!
I have a fixation for ceiling fans. I love to watch them spin. I meow at them when they start and when they stop, I can't help myself, it is just mesmerizing!
I'm the sheriff at our house and I do the same thing. When there is trouble, I run towards it, not away. Usually I don't add to the situation, just try to restore order. The other night we were all taking turns with the wand toy and Rusty got a little carried away and got annoyed because Ivan nearly landed on him. The two of them were staring at each other, I calmly walked between them and broke up the staring match and playtime continued.
Fluffy and Alex, I don't think and hope Diamond would ever try to get me. I guess I need to take a chill pill.
I got one! Keep Calm and Hit The Catnip. MOL.
Ivan- dude that one gets me too but I don't meow at it. I used to have a fascination with the ice maker noises. I would sit and stare at the fridge. If I heard it and I wasn't in the room I would run like the dickens to sit and stare some more.
Skylar, not me. I guess I'm the bad cop and your the good cop. I go in with guns a blazing.
Bad cop-Zachery! MOL!
Ok, I have to admit my obsession. It is CD/DVD players. Whenever I hear one opening, even if I am in another room, I am immediately AWARE of it & run right for that SOUND! Then I sit & look towards the SOUND, transfixed. I haven't yet jumped onto it, but maybe one day, heh!
("Keep Calm & Hit The Catnip." MOL! You're so funny, Zachery!)
Skylar, wow! You have power in your household!
Zach, just chill, buddy! There's no way any of us can be in control of everything all the time.
And do I have a personal fixation? Yes, I suppose I do, but I can't explain it. When the Mama is fixing dinner at the stove, I just HAVE to be there under her feet. Why? No one knows, not even me! It's not like I like human food - I don't, so what's the attraction?
Hey Zach dood, guess I really don't haza 'thing' per se..too layed back. Main thang iz I MUST go outside when I ask as I am affixiated on doin' it at dat time. I'm good I stay ona catio, or walk around my garden area 'n eat grass. I need to get 'way from dis..well bein' polite, witch in ma house. She iz da control freak here. I know her still a kitten but jumpin' on me 'n still bitin' my neck 'n bum, paaaawlease~!!! Guess Mallee kin'a know'z whar Ur comin' from. Actually her would no be'z here if I weren't so laid back coz dat Ziggy still ruffles Mallee's fur to no end~!!
Oh Alexander, dood dat jus' reminded mom o' when I did da freak thang wif da CD player~! Battin' at it as it came on out~ MOL~ Mom sezy dat wuz long time 'go. My thing iz jus' bein' wif mom, spawciall at night above her head ona her pillow.
