Wow, all these stories!! hilarious. I know they are meant to discuss being annoyed at the pets.. Well, my cat Oliver.
He was rescued from outdorrs (owner basically abandoned him and went off to jail) so we took him in. He is usually fine being inside as long as he can play and go in the porch and basement every now and then. Between November 2011 and now, he has learned (through behavioural conditioning by now probably) that if he sticks his paws in the bunny condo he will get sprayed with water or chased by us. We tried to ignore the behavior, we tried to distract him and reward a different behaviour and we tried to negatively punish him (water spray, loud noise). Nothing. I noticed a couple of nights ago, he was bored and picking at the cage so I called him over (part oft he distraction). Realised he was doing it for attention because as soon as I looked over he began to curl his back and tail and came over for loves.
He did that intentionally for another 3 times or so.. This is my cage now, the green tie at the very top is just to keep it closed. Normally she wouldn't try to get out but he has climbed in (climbed the condo like a ladder). The bottom is reinforced with 2 NIC walls, overlapped so the squares are smaller, lined with cardboard and a plastic eavestrough net (so the holes are even smaller) and tied tight with another green tie thing and black velcro. Because he will pick at it while we sleep.
I'm not sure if I hate Oliver more, or the fact my ^%$@#$%^&*&^%$ bunny taunts him and is not afraid!!!!
