guardians at the gate

Our little girl-cat, Mathilde is afraid of stuffed animals. We don't know why, but she gets very upset if you shake a stuffed animal at her and will run away. darkwolfie tells me that he showed her this little black cat toy he got out of a claw machine and she not only hissed at it, but grabbed it out of his hand, shook it, threw it, and then ran away.

Of course, if you have intelligence like this, you have to use it. In an effort to get her to stop jumping up on the counters and to keep her out of Wolfie's art room (which does not have a door), he has set up sentries at critical points throughout the house. A big blue bunny guards the art room, the black cat toy defends the pantry counter next to the microwave, and Patrick Star (another claw machine prize) stands watch over the dish drainer.

Other people have alarms, and motion detectors, and big snarly dogs. We have a character from Spongebob Squarepants protecting the silverware. At least he doesn't want to be fed.
