Yeah, like I said, he has an appointment to go on the 24th to get neutered. I wish I could do it sooner, but I just can't. I have some doc appointments, my mom is coming in from Alaska, lots of plans.
He's been pushy, and has tested my patience since the day I got him. Only it really has gotten worse. It seems like since the other day, all of the progress he made.. It just seems like we're back at square one.
I live in a pretty small apartment. He has lots of toys and things to climb. But he's forever bored, so he gets into things he shouldn't be in and he's constantly testing me. He knows he isn't supposed to be in my bookshelf, which I blocked off completely with books and blu rays and anything I can find, but if I am not directly playing with him, he runs over to the bookshelf, knocks as many books and movies off as he can, and then takes off running to find another place he can knock stuff out of.
I might have made a huge mistake, but I had no other ideas, so I finally took him outside to roam and explore. He does great in his harness, and it only took him like 10 minutes to feel comfortable enough to explore. We were out for a good half hour, and once I took him inside he flipped out. Howling, screeching, scratching at the door, jumping on the counter and knocking over everything in his way to get to the window. He broke 4 blinds trying to get out of the window - which is caulked, painted and nailed shut. I kept putting him back on the floor, and finally he got so angry that he jumped from the floor to my shoulder, while I'm wearing a tank top, mind you.. And he didn't quite make it so he slid down my back, nails stuck in my skin. I couldnt reach him so it was a painful process.
He's locked in my room for now. Toys, food, water and a couple treats, until he calms himself down. I know he wants back out, and I probably shouldn't have taken him out in the first place.
Also, I've gone through 2 small first aid kits recently. A whole tube of neosporin is gone. Heh. Most of the gashes/scratches have gotten a little swollen and uncomfortable, but there's been no signs of infections, thankfully. I can't reach the new ones on my back, but I did wash them with soap and water.
Gah, what a pain in the butt!
