Name: Bandit (5)
Location: Canada BC
I'm not a meankitty, I'm a gardener, and those plants needed pruning...out of this house!
What makes Bandit so mean?
I adopted this guy through Craig’s list and was happy to see he had a great temperament…until he decided that all window sills are to be completely clear of everything especially plants. Or else.
I had just gotten a few plants from my mother in law and was so horrified at the lengths Bandit would go after them. So many times, midnight to early mornings, I would wake up suddenly to crashes and bangs and a little mew. Every time I would put the plants back up and scold him, he would just glare and do it again every morning.
I soon gave up on having plants in the bedroom window because of this. But he soon found them in the kitchen window too. After about a dozen or so attempts to keep him out of the window, my husband and I got a bamboo rack and rigged it up in the window, only to find he would climb on top and break the rack while pushing my plants off the ledge anyway.
Our new attempt is we got a rack to fill the entire window. It was too long and he soon found a way to crawl UNDER it and get his back paws behind the plants. He shoved three of them right off onto the kitchen floor. it was once again a very early morning. Now I have a wooden board in there so there is no gap underneath. I still see him plotting how to win this next round with me.
