Our 7-month-old kitten is currently going through what I imagine is the cat equivalent to the terrible teenage years. In the last week he has broken a picture frame, punctured a shampoo bottle with his teeth, destroyed a glass perfume bottle my husband brought home from his deployment to Saudi Arabia, and, as of yesterday, he committed the worst offense yet…
He destroyed my Lego Disney Castle.
He didn’t even have the decency to do it during the day. My castle came crashing down at 5:30 am, startling me from my sleep. All I can say is that he is lucky that I love him. That castle took a week for me to build, and it took only seconds for him to destroy it.
As of right now my prized possession sits in a plastic tub. I have no intention of rebuilding until the kitten mellows out. If you ever needed a reason to adopt an older pet then let this post serve as that reason. While I long for my girls to be young and healthy again there is something to be said for the gentle nature of a senior cat.
