I’m glad Lion is horny again. I really am. What I didn’t look forward to was the return of the toddler in him.

Lion was tired yesterday. He fell asleep before 8. As soon as I changed the channel on the tv he stirred. I asked if he had a nice snooze and he said he wasn’t snoozing. Now I had just turned to a detective show, but I didn’t need to be a detective to know that closed eyes and faint snoring meant snoozing. He was a little snippy when he said he was tired. I let that go since he was settling back in to not snoozing again.

A short time later he woke up and we watched some more tv. We held hands off and on, and chatted. When it was time for bed, however, Lion became grumbly. “I’m horny and we didn’t play tonight.” He said he was frustrated. I asked him whose fault that was. He didn’t have an answer for that.

Of course, from my point of view, A) if he hadn’t fallen asleep we might have played; B) he was the one who asked to be caged; C) it wasn’t a regular play day; and D) if he didn’t want a specific wait time he could have come Friday night. But this morning when I woke up and I was thinking about his attitude, I wondered if he shouldn’t have to wait another day for his orgasm. Should I have to deal with his insolence? What punishment fits this crime? If he’s whining about being horny, does it make more sense to deny him for another day? Hit him where he lives, so to speak. Would ten hard swats with the nasty paddle be enough to prove my point?

Naturally I’m undecided. It would be the first time I’ve ever extended his time. Is one day enough? I think it would make an impression given it’s the first time. Unless he grumbles about it. Then I can extend it more.

So, I’ve made my decision. Lion’s wait has been extended to November 3 for his grumbly toddler behavior last night. I’m sure he will not be happy, but he should step carefully if he doesn’t want that date to move further away.
