Jungle Cat's Adventures

Saphira has been acting VERY strangely recently!

Another one from her dad: As I may have mentioned somewhere on here, one thing Saphira HATES is being put into her kitty jail (AKA cat carrier) for trips to the vet and claw trimmings and such, and I have the scars to prove it! We took to leaving it in our bedroom, where she spends a lot of her time, so she would at least be used to seeing it around. Before we did that, she would run and hide any time I took it from its hiding place. She is way overdue for a trim, so one morning a week or two ago when I noticed her INSIDE the carrier, I quickly shut the door and meowmy and I quickly dressed and it was off for her trim, no trauma for either of us. That is not the really strange part! A day or two later I was feeding them (I have mentioned that they are very undemanding about feeding and we often have to call them to eat), Viola showed up as usual when called to eat, but Saphira was nowhere to be found, a bit unusual for her. FINALLY after a few minutes we see her... Walking our of her kitty jail, she had been napping inside! Since then she often curls up inside of it for a rest. I would have thought that with her early bad experiences with it, she would avoid the darn thing at all costs, but hey, it is little surprises like this that make being owned by cats so interesting. Have to put in a little plug from daddy, since we celebrated Viola's first gotcha anniversary day earlier this month and Saphira's second will be right after Catmus: They are still she best behaved and most entertaining kitties we have ever served under, both are just absolute joys, and we feel so lucky that our daughters decided that Saphira would make a great Catmus present for us two years ago!

I like my "jail" but we call it "the taxi." I inherited it from my bro-fur Figaro who loved it. It's good Saphira can enjoy it, maybe she'll learn that it doesn't always have to be a bad thing! MOL!

I love my carrier, too. It sits out all the time, with a soft blanket in it and even a pet heating pad in the winter. I sleep in it a lot! It's my own little hideaway. I don't so much like when it takes me to the vet, but I never hold a grudge against the carrier. Glad that Saphira likes hers now!

(It's also a good idea to leave a carrier out in case there's an emergency and you all need to leave your house quickly! We have a large carrier that sits by the front door, so both Beepers and I could fit in it in an emergency.)
