Hopefully he´ll grow out of this kitten stage soon. He really is a terror sometimes. Now that he can´t get at the pigs he doesn´t seem to care about them. Whenever I give the girls lettuce he wants some too, however he just bats it around when I give him some. Anyone want a cat lol just kidding some days he just gets on my last nerve!
We have 4 indoor cats. Muffin is so scared she won´t even come into the same room with them (she´s really timid and really only comes out when my husband is downstairs by himself). Moppet will sit on the table or the chair and look at them while their in the cage but is scared when they´re out of the cage and won´t come into the room. Mittens is pretty much disinterested in them and will glance and them and that´s it, though if they´re out she´s scared an leaves the room. Smokey is the boldest (at least while they´re in the cage) and will paw up at the hay which pokes through the cage bars and try to get the hay out -- if she gets a piece out she plays with it. She isn´t quite as scared as the other cats and will remain in the room if the piggies are out though she hides under the chair. But if one of the piggies gets near her she gets scared and we have to open the door to let her out.
We also have a dog. She watches the piggies through the cage but isn´t scared of them. We have let her sniff them when they are out of the cage. Our dog is a Beagle, which are pack dogs, and we wanted her to know that the piggies are part of her pack. Other than sniffing at them she doesn´t bother them. Though we will never have her unsupervised around them.
We´ve only had one minor "incident" with Tanner and the pigs. One day Sweetheart was sitting beside me on the floor and Tanner came into the room. He ran up to me and went to sit down beside me, he failed to notice that the seat was already occupied. As he sat down he landed partially on Sweetheart and knocked the air out of him in an audible woosh. Tanner was shocked to be sitting on something and got up and ran away complete with an angry, and rumblestrutting, Sweetheart following behind him.
However, Mr. Kitty (I didn´t name him) does like to stick his arm in the gpig cages and bat at them. He´s declawed, but I worry that it will escalate. He seems to be testing his limits. Whenever he does something naughty, all I have to do is say his name and he´ll stop. The problem with him is he doesn´t seem to have an inhibition about biting people. He also has bitten his "best friend" Sarabi quite a few times, leaving little scabs on her head. He bites my feet while I´m sleeping! If he ever bites one of the pigs, I´ll bite him. Check out the pic of Spot playing in the "nifty toy" thread and you´ll see Mr. Kitty eyeing him in the background!
