Nine Lives and Counting

September 14, 2010 at 6:27 pm 1 comment

There’s no denying that aging should come with a set of privileges not afforded the young and naïve. It’s a notion that we become more attached to as the years go by and one that my eldest cat has recently embraced whole-heartedly.

While he has always been a good-natured and compliant feline, he is now 85 (in cat years) and has taken to all manner of behaviors that are quite uncharacteristic. He sleeps on the dining room table when we’re not in the room, eats off our plates if we turn our backs for a second and, yesterday, I found him using my clinging-to-life fig tree as a litter box. It’s as though, nearing the end of his ninth life, he has decided to throw all caution to the wind and whoop it up. And, because he’s endured countless moves, the birth of two loud children, and the introduction of three dogs, we’re inclined to let him.

If, however, you need to curtail the untoward behavior of your cats, the StayAway is the perfect solution. The StayAway detects motion from up to three feet and emits a harmless blast of compressed air and a warning sound that keeps cats away from protected areas.
