Karen Jo: You're right, Spyro. You aren't really naughty. There are some other cats here, though . . .
Karen Jo: What do you call tormenting poor Cissy so much? I picked a slightly blood-stained claw sheath out of your face this morning. Why can't you just leave her alone?
Oja: She's such an easy target. I don't particularly like stinky mancats, but lady cats who are always screaming are worse.
Karen Jo: You hiss at Tabitha, too.
Oja: What did you expect? I hiss at every new cat.
Karen Jo: You were tormenting Cissy this morning, too. All she was doing was lying on her cushion in the kitchen.
Rocio: Like Oja said, she's an easy target.
Karen Jo: That's right. You are a good kitty. I appreciate how easily you have made friends with Tabitha.
Karen Jo: You have been a really good mancat lately, Horus. You haven't even hissed at Tabitha. You just sniff her whenever you meet; then you walk away.
Karen Jo: That's right. On the contrary, you have been really nice to Tabitha. It's so much fun to watch the two of you play chase.
Karen Jo: You just spend all your energy in getting better, Brody. Eat as much Elegant Medleys as you can. You will be getting them for every meal from now on.
Karen Jo: You have been very naughty. Care to explain?
Cissy: I am upset that Brody isn't the same. Some of the other kitties are mean to me. I decided to just stay in the kitchen, but there isn't a litter box in here.
Karen Jo: So that's why you used the recycle bin for your litter box and when I put a lid on that you used the floor? There is a litter box just a few feet down the hall from the kitchen.
Cissy: But it wasn't IN the kitchen
Karen Jo: I got you a brand new litter box and put it in the kitchen, as much as I hate the idea of a litter box in the kitchen. I got you the gel crystals, in case you decided you didn't like the Swheatscoop. I hope that solves the problem. Otherwise, you are going to the vet. You might go anyway in case this change in your behavior means that you are sick.
Karen Jo: You don't have to worry about it. How do you like having the door to your room open all the time?
Tabitha: I love it. I can go where I please, when I please and retreat back into my room when I have had enough excitement. You know what, kitties? There are dishes of food out there that are different than what I have been getting. Yummy!
