Marco is now irritating to both Matt and I. I find myself and Matt saying "You stupid cat" quite often. And getting easily annoyed by everything he does. And it suddenly see seems more of a trouble maker, getting into things. Escaping outside a lot. Being bad. Though maybe he really isn't anymore bad then he was before. Marco has always been a troublemaker of a cat. But because taking care of a baby is a handful in itself, having a bratty cat just adds more headaches to the day.
But don't get me wrong, Marco is a sweet cat, he really isn't that terrible. I just feel bad that I don't care about him the same way I use to. Maybe that makes me sound like a terrible person. I feel like Marco is getting neglected. I don't change his litter-box as often as I should because I simply don't have time. We use to give Marco frequent bathes. Now Marco hasn't had a bath in over four months. But I'm sure he isn't complaining about that. He HATES bathes. We don't cuddle and pet Marco as often anymore. Don't worry, one thing we are still not slacking on is food. Marco definitely gets fed. He is a fat cat!
|Marco definitely likes his food, and likes to get his bouts of attention when he can!|
Speaking of claws. Marco is officially on my hate list. Yesterday I was brushing Marco. Now Marco hates when I brush him. He gets fur all over the place. So I have to brush him. But it is a dangerous task. I decided to quit brushing Marco's fur, because I could tell he was getting mad. So I stopped and was looking at my toes, deciding if I should paint them or not. Next thing I know, Marco attacks my arm and bits it! Now this wasn't a I'm mad and jealous there is a baby revenge bite. Marco has attacked before when I brush him. I just never have gotten a bit so bad from him before.
|Bad Kitty! It looks worse today.|
|Give me some attention now!|
And Marco likes doing bad things like try to drink water that's on kitchen table instead of the actual water from his bowl. Like I said, Marco has always done these kind of bad things, but now that I have a baby, I don't have time to yell or stop the bad things Marco does.
