I swear it, she's taken it and put it somewhere I can't find it.
Bella is seriously driving me crazy. I think part of the cause is that she's Bengal so she's super active and loves, loves, loves to climb and jump.
But we have rules-she isn't allowed on any of the furniture, not the couch, table, counters. And I know she knows this, but right in front of me she'll jump right up as if its her given right to do it. As soon as I make any movement to get up, she runs off and hides.
At first a simple, "NO" would get her to stop, then she started to test the limits and got into the "teenager" phase, and we had to move onto the tape method-which she didn't seem to even notice..then spraying her with water. But she got used to that fast and it didn't bother her anymore. Now its gotten to the point where I have to jump up and chase her around making scary noises. I'm sure my neighbors think I'm absolutely insane and abusing small children or something. but this really is not effective, she's too small and quick for me to stop her and she just jets right upstairs to hide and I'm sure it isn't good to try and scare the bejeezus out of her.
HOW DO I STOP HER FROM BEING SUCH A TURD?
At this point, I try to keep her in the same room as I am so I can watch her and so she can't get into mischief, but that doesn't stop her-she just does it right in front of my anyways. I also try to play with her extra to tire her out, but t seems all this does is makes her go sleep somewhere, and then she wakes up with even more energy than before.
I've never had such a defiant, stubborn cat, ever.
