Well, life is going along pretty good these days, *knock on wood*. IF you discount the shananigans of the *dogs*, the rest of the Thunderbear cats, and of course the silliness of Freddy Mercury Thunderbear the White, my sort-of brother. He has taken to lying about nonchalantly and then swiping the ankles of whichever human walks past him. And with CLAWS!! Mommi, rightly so, does not understand this behaviour, and although de-clawing would cure Freddy M. from this activity, Mommi & them are stricly agains this practice. Long ago, when my uncle Opie Thunderbear was ill (all his life) with Crohn's disease, they had to have him declawed as they were having to give him medicines all his laif, and he would tear whatever human was administering said meds, to the point he was literally impossible. Mommi has always felt guilty about this de-clawing of Opie, but she and Ro felt like there was just no other way, as they tried all manner of methods of restraining him, including nearly sitting on him, and he was traumatized every time. *sigh*. Well, anyway, they did the best they could. As for Freddy Mercury (he now calls himself "Freddy Mercury the Wise" something I will cure him of as soon as I can pounce on and thrummel him soundly) attacking ankles just seems to be something he loves, and Mommi told Ro, "We COULD wear some sort of armor on our legs and feet, like combat boots." They have already tried thick socks, and Freddy just gets hung up on the socks and falls into a mad frenzy of panic. As of now, they are at a loss as to what to do. And actually, the band-aids on their legs and feet sorta temper the blows....

you know what I think Freddy sounds like he has toooo much energy maybe all the kitties in the house need to come together and wear him out so he will be tooo tired to attack ankles MOL
