Oh man!!! Catster fleas!!!! I wrote this whole diary and then when I tried ta save it, it went blank!!! I hope I can remember all tha stuffs I just wrote!!!

So, tha day started when this doooood came ovfur my house. I liked him right away and went ta says hi ta him. He was so nice and said what a purrrrty girl I am and stuffs. Then ya know what he did!!! He looked around and took my hiding boxes away!!! He told Mommy that I can't has places ta hide where Harrison might wanna chase me to, and has no place ta run to! He also said that he thinks Harrison just thinks I is a toy, better than all tha other toys, 'cause not only does I run, make noise and is soft, but I pee too, and all the other toys don't do that when he chases them!

He said I needs ta go into tha bedroom too, even if I don't wanna, 'cause Harrison needs ta has time, even if it's only 20 minutes twice a day, ta run and play in a big space, so he can see how much cooler the cat toys are ta chase than I am. He even tried ta has Mommy and them himselfs put me in the bedroom, but I didn't wanna and I scratched Mommy and tried ta nibbles on him when they tried ta put me in there....see, there is this invisible line that I don't wanna cross and he could see, and showed Mommy how ta tell, that when I got to a certain point in the 'partment, my confidence went from kewl and collected ta frightened and scurrrred. So we gotta works on that and help my comfurrt level. My homework was ta get into tha bedroom and aftur he left, Mommy did put me in there, and I was ok, even though I didn't likes it at furst.

So he also said that 'cause of my comfurts, I had ta has my food bowl moved so I would just walk right up ta it and away, instead of peeking around fur Harrison eat time I want ta eat. Harrison's bowl has ta move too, even though he is comfurtable wherevfur it is. I also am gonna get treats treats treats! He did want Mommy ta click and treat me again, but without the part that I has to touch something fur a treat. I just hear the click and get a yum yum, so whenevfur I hear the click, I know tha yum yums come.

I basically gots a month about ta get my scurrrred kittyness better, and then he is gonna come back ovfur and helps Mommy to akshully introduce me to Harrison. In tha meantimes, Mommy has ta make some changes, the kind like moving my food closer based on my comfurrts and the play stuffs with Harrison. He says he's got so much hopes 'cause I am such a happy and kewl kitty in tha way I interacts and stuffs, I just am nervfous with Harrison 'cause I just expects badness ta happen.

He thinks Harrison is a good dude-I'm not so sure about that MOL! But, I guess if Mommy works hard and doesn't push my comfurrts (that's her homework!) then maybe I will see what a good dude he is too. But fur sure tha most important thing is ta makes me feel safe in all tha places in my home, but let Harrison get his playtime out too so he doesn't play with me!

He told Mommy too that she's gotta trust her insticts with us, 'cause they are sooo right, but she's gotta trust them. So if she thinks that I can move a step up, then ta let me, but make sure she can tell my comfurts is ok. he was so nice too and Mommy told him all about Catster and so she is gonna keep updating my diary with how I am doing and send it ta him too so he can keep up on my pawrogress. Oh, and he is gonna talks to my vet doc doc too about evfurrything and ta change my medicines 'cause even though I is getting confidents again, he thinks I should be taking something else.

So awlll in awlll I think it was good-he gave Mommy some toys too fur Harrison ta chase 'cause he loves ta plays and he is a typical boy who is naughty, MOL! and has lots a energy ta get out. He most definitely said that he has so much hopes and that it's not as awfuls as it seems, as long as we go with tha flow and take time with steps. And no more kibbles!!! I love my yum yums so I'm not sure how I feel about that rule, but we will see! I do love my wet stuffs a lot. We gotta move tha litter box too when we get furthur along, and add some shelves up ta helps with the escape routes.

He said I am such a beautiful girl though and loves my behaviors and how I walk around and stuffs-I just can't hide anymore, or rather, has hiding spots that kinda blocks my perceptions of where Harrison is. And those baby gates aren't gonna come out fur awhile 'cause we gots ta be separate fur sure fur now.

It's awwwwl so crazy! But Mommy is gonna follow tha rules and hopefully evfurrything will be so much better fur us! And I know that Harrison was so happy ta has access to tha living room today. He drank from my fountain and went on tha cat trees and played with Mommy. I thinks he was more excited ta be in another room 'cause he wasn't as interested in tha toys as he usually is, but with the plan, he should look forward to tha play time and will get his yum yums aftur he gets awwwl worn out from playing!

If I can remember anything else I will let ya know! Right now I cannot remember much, there was so much infurmations! It's funny though 'cause Mommy was saying that she has read so many books and this dooood thought that was pawsome! But it is so much more helpfuls ta has a real purrrrson ta talk to and walk through the steps with, and help fill in tha holes that the books don't fully fill, or at least explain things in a better way even if it's written down!

Love,
Kitty

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! I'm sorry KP. I just had to laugh when you said Harrison thinks it's fun when you pee! MOL MOL MOL! OMC! Well this all sounds GREAT!!! Very pawsome. You'll be a more confident girl in no time sweetheart! OH my mommy is laughing at the pee remark. MOL. Did he stick his hands in your poopies!?

I'm SO glad you liked him & felt like he gave good advice!! What a relief it is to know there's a lot of hope for a peaceful household!! He sounds very thorough too! The show doesn't show that. It shows him changing/fixing a FEW things, but he sure covered a lot with you!!
You won't miss your kibble if you're getting a lot of treats!

We wish you the very best in implementing the changes and are here to support you no matter what. Luv, Tink & Snow

MOL! No Finney, he didn't put the hands in tha poopie box cause Mommy does a good job with clearing it and we don't potty where we shouldn't...unless its when I is a toy MOL! But the kewl thing too is he does want us ta keep him posted so it feels like he really cares about our pawrogress and we can contact him anytime we has a question or pawroblem, and that is comfurting. Its like, mommy took notes but still is unsure about stuffs but he said trust the insticnts cause they is spot on!

Yay! Great news! So glad he has lots of ideas and now your Mommy has extra, in-home support. I'm glad he's coming back in a month to help, too. As for what happened with the scratches, after everything that happened with Indy, I'm sure that gives your Mommy extra worry about any injuries or infection. Hang in there, Kristin, sounds like some HOPE came through your front door today!

That is one cool dude. I had to giggle and think "Aha" though... I know the striped nuisance here thinks "we're his toys" too.

Sounds like behavior man knows his stuff and it's super cool that he is reachable for support and interested in your progress. I like that!

Great news! The 'doood' sounds like he knows his stuff and it's very comforting to hear he wants to know about your progress. True, the books don't fully fill all the holes, 'cause each case is so different. The books can only map out behaviors that share a common thread. Keep us posted.

I wanna be clicker trained too! That is so cool. click click and a treat appears. I want that. You are so lucky, Kitty P.
Sounds like you guys have a plan now. I like it that he gave you all homework, ha ha. The bedroom will be a 'nice' place again for you in no time, Kitty, if your Mom helps you to go in there every day.

Now, I really love the bedroom. It has all of my comforts...I do get out of it at least once a day and Alex goes on the porch for that short time...Alex did use me as his play toy. He loved to chase me and I would turn and growl....Then, he jumped me at the litter box and all ---- let loose....My litter box is a special place so I have my own in a different place. We did have all three of them in one place so now they are in two different places. This helped a lot. It is good that you have someone helping...Books are good but they make the problem seem so simple, don't they!
....I own about five of them talking about cat problems.....Good luck and happy training......

That's good news! Good luck with all of that! You just gotta thump him a few times on his fool head and he'll realize you're not a chew toy.

Well I fur one am always happy when we all get along.
Now I guess it may as well be known. We are four guys and, well, we have a wee bit of conflicts now and again. MOL!
Toby goes after Buddy. Buddy nips Toby. I give Toby a whack. Rumpy just causes trouble all around! MOL! Pops has always got some conflict to end.
He is, after all, the great moderator by water squirt! MOL!
No. Really he has done a lot. We now have an extra litter pan. One for each(But we all like the one in the sleep room most). We get treats for being good and he tries to wear us out with good healthy play times.
Seems you have a grrrreat parent too!

oh furrrriends, thanks fur all yr comments! Mommy is trying ta stay pawwwsitives. It's funny, 'cause Indy loved tha clicker training, but Harrison and me was just interested in tha treats, so I'm glad that I don't has to do anything fur tha treats, just eat 'em when I hear tha click. I has a sneakin suspishions that Mommy might try ta clicks and then go beyond tha invisible forcefields of Kitty Pryde doom, but does she really think I am not that smart MOL! Tha dooood already said I is too smart to pretends that I don't know Harrison is here...I knows his evfurry move, even though I cannot see it! Mol!
