Re: Cat mischief
I usually feed my kitten 3x per day, which is probably unnecessary since he's 8 months old, but I am home anyway so it's usually not a problem. However, I have not been able to make it home twice for his lunch since I got him, and I'm convinced that both times he tried to feed himself. The first time, I came home to his food dish, dragged all the way across the floor, sitting in front of the mini fridge where I keep his food.
I thought it might be a fluke, but just a few days ago I didn't get home until around 4, so I was not home at 1 or 2 to give him his usual midday meal. When I got back, I found that he had opened the mini fridge and dragged all of it's contents onto the floor. Apparently he feels that if I am late for lunch, it is within his rights to feed himself. Other than these two instances I have never been late for one of his meals, and he has not moved his food dish or opened the fridge on any other occasion.
