First I’d like to tell you a little story involving Kasper 😛
As we were asleep in bed, Kasper decided to do some exploring. When we fell asleep, he was curled on the bed between us. When my partner woke up, Kasper had barged the baby gate open, squeezed past it, and was upstairs eating everything he could get his paws on!!!
My partner rushed upstairs.
Kasper had polished off a (very large) pack of sliced cooked meat for the dogs, from the mini fridge which he had opened. He’d also managed to pry the lid open on the kibble bin, and had eaten an unholy amount of kibble.
My partner managed to get Kasper downstairs with no resource guarding (I’m still amazed about that!) and Kasper immediately came and lay on top of my legs, waking me up.
My partner told me what had happened and just as he finished Kasper began retching – yes, on top of me.
He wasn’t sick, but he retched again (well not retching, that rhythmic noise dogs seem to make before puking) and wasn’t sick a second time. By this point my partner’s on the phone to the emergency vet.
The vet said that given Kasper’s size he would hopefully be okay (apparently it’s hard for bigger dogs to eat themselves to death when the food isn’t toxic) – she said if Kasper was smaller he would most likely have died without emergency treatment.
She also said not to worry if he vomited, but if he drooled uncontrollably, couldn’t move, or his stomach felt odd, it was an emergency situation.
Thankfully Kasper lay down and slept.
He did a lot of poops the next day (haha) and the truly annoying thing was that on his walk the next morning he was scrabbling and lunging at ONE CHIP someone had dropped on the floor, and some really old horse poo that was crushed into the road.
Like, have you not eaten enough?! XD
So there you go, an example of how truly greedy Kasper is. I don’t think most people (my family especially) realise how hard it is to manage him, or the lengths he will go to for food, and the fact that he really would eat a dangerous amount.
I mean, we’re just lucky we hadn’t left any chocolate or anything about, because obviously we weren’t expecting a dog to go up there!
Secondly, look which kittycat used the box shelf 😀
I ordered another bulk buy of wet cat food in from Zooplus today, so I got Enzo some new toys also. A tunnel, a play cube, and then lots of little toys that he can bat about too. Oh, and I bought his first harness!!
(obviously not my image)
He’s finally started regularly climbing to the top of the tallest cat tree, and he loves just chilling and watching the chin girls…last night him and Bandoose were trying to reach each other, it was too cute!
And we need some more sandpaper in for the scratch board again!
Here’s Raiden’s ‘artwork’ after just 3 days’ worth of scratching 😀
I took my camera on Rey’s walk this morning and got some pretty good photos, which I’ll post later. Here’s a little taster for you 😉
I may have just exploded at the cuteness…
