Perhaps this is wishful thinking so let me explain.
Benji and I share an office.
I have my chair.
He has his perch.
Every morning after I feed him I retreat to my office to enjoy my coffee.
Every morning Benji joins me.
I welcome him on my lap but I don’t allow him to to sharpen his claws on my chair – we discuss this daily.
To assist with our discussion I have enlisted the support of a squirt bottle but with moderate success. So I brought in a scratching post – ‘use this’ I said – but he was reluctant to oblige.
Until I sprayed it with catnip.
Wild boy that Benji.
Still I remain hopeful.
