Lion sent back his Jail Bird to be re-sized. He is wearing the Chinese cage again. No big deal, right? At least he is still caged. Well, I forgot how much I hate that Chinese cage. I pinch him every time I try to put it on. It’s difficult to get all the parts lined up. Once he’s in it I don’t want to take it off because I know what a nightmare it is to put back on.
And that was actually my first thought as we were struggling with it last night. Maybe he’ll stay in it till the Jail Bird comes back. That’s about a week and a half. No orgasm. No teasing. No hygiene time. He could do it. But do I want him to? The more I think about it, the more I think I’d rather have a wild Lion than to have to wrestle with this horrible cage. But do I want him to be wild? Not so much.
Sure I think he would be fine if he was wild for such a short time. He was wild for days when he had doctor’s appointments. It could be a mini vacation for him. Time off for good behavior. Of course, I couldn’t deny him for long without expecting him to take matters into his own hands. And it would set a dangerous precedent. Things got difficult so we gave up. He wants the cage on. I want it on too, but am I willing to fight with it? Maybe there’s a compromise somewhere in between wild and wrestling match. A few days on, a few days off?
Lion has no say in the matter. He’s caged. I hid the key. He can’t get out. He doesn’t even have an emergency key this time. (I’ll have to fix that oversight. It’s important to me that he can get out if he absolutely needs to.) If I decide to make him stay in the cage until the Jail Bird gets back, then that’s exactly what he’ll do. He won’t like it, but he has no choice.
Ironically I think he would like it less if he were wild. Oh, he’d love peeing standing up and being able to touch his toy even if he weren’t doing it to pleasure himself, but in the back of his mind he’d know I didn’t have that power over him at that moment. I think that would bother him more than anything.
So we’ll play it by ear and see how it goes. There’s no official rule book and even if there was, I’m the referee.
