Nothing is Safe

Well, after the past adventures of McLaren and Laser managing to climb onto the shelves and opening food and treat packets and eating themselves silly, I moved all edible pieces into the cupboard.  I thought this was a safe idea, as it is relatively high up (waist height) and has a door on the front.



They have figured out that if they hit and scratch at the doors long enough, they will open a little and using their claws they can finally get inside.  So, everything ‘spare’ or ‘chewable’ has been moved to the spare bedroom for now, until I find a suitable lock to attach to the cupboard.

Desperate measures came into effect last night, however.  I was just about to turn out the lights and go to sleep when McLaren hopped up on my bed and dropped something by my side to instigate a game of fetch.  He’d been rolling something around on the floor for a while and I assumed it was a pen.



He’d clearly been back in the cupboard and searching it for all his worth, as when I picked up the object to throw for him, I found a STANLEY KNIFE in my hand. I didn’t even know I owned a stanley knife!  Where had it come from?!

Of course the cupboard door was opened and the craft supplies inside were somewhat jumbled.  The stanley knife is now taking a vacation in the spare bedroom.

In the mean time…

      I wouldn’t mind so much if it wasn’t the only place I can really keep the bag of kibble! Also the fact that he bangs at it to open at night while i’m trying to get to sleep. I already have to keep the wardrobe doors open to deter them from banging on those.

    Da Boyz have figured out that if they hit the screen door on the kitchen often enough, it will bounce open enough so they can then reduce the kitchen into a disaster zone. We feel your pain, and we’ve got tape, hook-and-eyes, and rope loops as ‘cat-enterus-avoidus’ tools! LOL!

      Hahaha! I would have just tied rope around the cupboard door handles but only one of the doors has a handle, the other door can (by humans!) only be opened by opening the first. That seems to be the one they manage to open first each time though!
