Frustration Box


I understand that some kitties scratch furniture when they are frustrated. I just climb in this box and frantically chew on the flaps. (I have to make it clear that I can't really give out catriatric advice, but I just wanted the little girl who lives in South Africa to know that I didn't get her message of concern on how to influence her Mom. I am a boy, and I don't necessarily know how to deal with girl cat issues, if you know what I mean.)

Boxes are good to scratch on. So are kitty condos/scratching posts. Our human used double-sided sticky tape on her furniture when she first adopted Annie, because Annie would go for the couch. She also took the time to show us all what to do every morning when we got up, how to scratch the kitty condos. And she did and still does praise us when we do. So we actually don't scratch at the furniture. Or not often. :-))

Boxes are great for letting out all that pent up frustration

And what a fine boy you are Mandu.

Well, Mandu, you are certainly taking your frustration out in the right place (from a human standpoint, that is). Cardboard boxes are a lot easier to replace than furniture.

You look so cute and cozy in there, too.

Boxes are great to deal with your frustrations. At least you don't take them out on the furniture.

I chew on cords a papers when I need to blow off some steam!

Regarding guinea pigs as snacks. . . I think it's best to take the furs off first, otherwise you'd get a terrible terrible hairball (and maybe indigestion).

I don't chew on the furniture but I do claw the rug under dad's desk. But I'm allowed to, so it's okay.
