Gavin: My cats love each other so much that, at one point recently, Columbo, the younger one got locked in one of the rooms and they were like communicating through the door And Smee can open doors, but this is one of the doors, where we’ve- We have a magnet on it so he can’t open it
Barbara: Smee proof Gav: Yeah, so instead of like, he tried to open the door for awhile We looked on the cameras and in the end he couldn’t do it so he went upstairs got a beanie baby And delivered it in front of the door it’s like ” I’ve done everything i can, but here’s a beanie baby Gus: I’m going to take off uhh the beanie baby will take care of you” Gav: Yeah, he’s like ” Look I can’t get in…but here’s this” “Good luck” Barb: Does he think there like..dead animals? Gav: I don’t know, if we lock them out of the bedroom he will go upstairs there’s a box of beanie babies he’ll bite one in his mouth or pick one or select one come down the stairs one in his mouth and dump outside the bedroom door and he’ll do that once a night and if we don’t move them, by the end of the week we’ll have a stack of beanie babies Barb: You should see how many he can stack up Do you think that he’s trying to protect you guys? Gav: I don’t know what it is, its kinda like some sort of cat behavioral thing i don’t think it’s that rare it just fascinates me Do you know what you need to do? You get this cat licker thing, you need to get on his level you need to give him a couple licks See if he lets you know what’s going on Barb: You should bring him a beanie baby
Gav: I’ll bring him a beanie baby in my mouth Crawl down my wooden staircase on my hands and knees Gus: I wonder what he thinks, what do they mean to him. That’s so weird.
He probably thinks that they’re confusing other people so he’s like i’m not Gonna, be here guarding, my, boy in the other room but they’re here you can’t fuck with them
Barb: Or maybe he’s just trolling you. Maybe he’s way smarter Gav: That’s the thing, is that so if the door is open he’ll sleep on the bed and that won’t stop him, sometimes He’ll just get like a cat idea where he’s just asleep on the bed and at 4 a.m. He just thinks, well i’m gonna go get a Beanie baby and get off the bed, go upstairs, into the office of said, grab one dump it at the foot the bed hop back on the bed and go back to sleep. But it’s like, the cat, with its little cat, brain, made that decision why
