Punishing Yerbie. by tucsonmike on 13 December 2008 11:22pm
For a week, my keys and transmitter to get into work were missing. They were found Friday morning under the Christmas display in the living room.
I would have had to pay $20 for a new remote if this one was not found.
Well I decided to poll my coworkers as to a suitable punishment for Yerbie aka small fry. He was to get a good scolding and no treats.

The no treats had the effect. For the scolding, he just closes his eyes and played sphinx, sitting there haughtily. (Yerbie does haughty well).
Scoldings only have a limited effect on Yerbie. It is always a silly adventure.

Awww Mike - he just didn't want you to go to work ;x You never know...! One of my cats used to lay down and stretch out on my clothes daily when I laid them out on my bed to get ready for work. Then he would look up at me like - 'wouldn't you rather stay here with me?'

I used to have a cat that hoarded shiny things. Sadly, he died before he was two years old; we found his stash a few months later when moving an old dresser. There was my chrome plated Cross pen, some jewelry, about a dozen foil balls we'd made for him to play with, etc. Poor kitty!

Maybe Yerbie just really liked your keys and transmitter and wanted to stash them under the display? Or maybe *he* was punishing *you* for something!

Yes there's nothing like a cat's revenge. Apart from a woman's.

Was he telling you he didn't want you to go to work but stay and play with him?

We got Yerbie as laser light and aim it on the ceiling. Did not approve at all. He has even become fussy about the straws he plays with. They have to bend.
