Remember I said the neighbor was cat-knapping my cat?
Well we kept him indoors for a long time, he kept escaping, whining , fussing, licking all his fur off etc. I decided I could not handle it any longer. I let him out and for a few days he kept coming in to eat. GOOD.
Then he stopped coming in.
Sure enough he was at HER house. I went 2 days in a row to coax him off her patio. All to no avail. She has no access to get on this deck from the outside.
We even brought temptations...expensive food etc. He would look at us, and then look at her sliding glass door, almost willing her to come out and rescue him from US!
I went home and cried. We have had this cat for going on 8 years and he was rejecting us for her. WHAT does she have we don't? Well we have a female cat that challenges Williams man hood for once, and he cannot be king of the castle all the time......
Anyhow, I was giving up....she can have him, she can win. HE hates us anyhow.
My daughter gave me a tongue lashing , and told me she could not believe I would give up....I went and cried myself to sleep.
The next morning I marched over to her patio and I will be damned if SHE takes my cat!
I got the treats, he ate, I hesitated, He jumped up on a chair out of reach and ignored me. I went home.......very sad. Then I turned around and said Screw it. I went back and threw temptations at him, got him off the chair, and then grabbed him through the railing, his claws sticking in all the way and marched home with him.
He now gives me the evil eye. He looks pissed. It has been about 5 days now and I don't feel sorry for him at all. I will win this, not the cat. So what if he has to pee in a litter box.
He stupidly thinks I will let him out......no way.
I don't know how long this will last, but my will is stronger than his.
He is our cat.
Besides, winter is coming and he hates the rain.
He does have his moment when he drools out of contentment, and then we are both content. Good kitty, good kitty.
