Transcribed from the interrogation of mancat Evan, on October 3rd, 2016, in the corner.
The Mom: Evan, why are sitting in the corner like that?
Evan: I'm in a timeout.
The Mom: And why, exactly? I didn't send you to timeout. Oh no, what did you do?
Evan: I can neither confirm nor deny anything.
The Mom: No more crime shows for you, buddy. Now, what did you do?
Evan: I can't say. I'm too ashamed.
The Mom: That's far from comforting.
Evan: Mom, why are you still here? I asked you to please go away.
The Mom: Spill the beans, buddy.
Evan: It's Toby's fault.
The Mom: What's Toby have to do with this?
Evan: Well, you see, he interrupted my nap time.
The Mom: How's that?
Evan: Well, he got all invasive, and he wanted to use the rug I had just perfectly situated for a snooze! Honestly, I had it all folded and rolled and strewn about, just perfect, and then over saunters that Toby.
The Mom: You know, they say that sharing is caring, Evan.
Evan: I didn't want to share.
The Mom: And what do you mean by that? What happened, Evan?
Evan: I, um, I took care of business.
The Mom: Evan!
Evan: I know, I know, I sort of lost my cool, Mom. That's why I'm in the corner. But, it looks worse than it is! Promise! He's okay now.
Toby: I'm alive! And I have the rug!
(Disclaimer: No Tobys were harmed in the making of this post.)
For the record, Evan eventually came out of his self-induced timeout, absolved of his wrongdoings. But, he wants to know, does anybuddy else out there ever get into
For his troubles, I told Toby that he could be the star of my drawing for today's JNW's Halloween Challenge prompt. Given that today's prompt is spooky, and, wanting to give Toby the benefit of the doubt, I decided on this:
I'm guessing all of our furiends out there are also simply too cute to spook! Am I right?
Our Tip of the Day:Yesterday we discussed how blank or otherwise abnormal staring behavior in your kitty or pup could potentially be cause for concern. In this same line of thought, today's tip is to also keep an eye out for behavior such as your furbaby standing with their head in a corner and/or head pressing (i.e., pressing the head against a wall or other object). Some medical diseases or emergencies, such as a tumor of the brain, ingestion of toxins, or head trauma, can result in behaviors such as standing in corners or head pressing. In some cases, behaviors such as this are the result of senility of cognitive dysfunction and ca potentially be managed. In other cases, though, time is of the essence and veterinary care should be sought immediately. Therefore, if you see any such behaviors beyond what is normal for your furbaby, please consult a veterinarian immediately.
