I’ve said before that I don’t like to plan things anymore. One of the reasons is that if I make mention of something in a post and it doesn’t pan out, Lion eventually calls me out. However, there are occasions when I do follow through and nothing happens. That was the case last night.
In his defense, I don’t think Lion was very happy with me after I punished him for interrupting me. Actually, during the punishment he looked pissed. He kept telling me he’d had enough. Of course, what he thinks rarely matters. I don’t think his butt was too red by the time I stopped. It might have just been the fact that I “caught” him and punished him the same night it happened. His pride may have hurt more than his butt.
At any rate, about an hour after the punishment I went to snuggle with him (early enough this time) but he didn’t respond. I don’t know if he just wasn’t in the mood or if it was the result of the punishment. We were watching TV but, as Lion has said many times in the past, the remote does have a pause button. There’s nothing on TV that’s more important than his play time.
Yesterday Lion asked me to delay caging him while our company is here. That’s a valid request. I’ll even delay until after our camping trip. We’ll revisit the subject when we get back. He’s still on the fence about being caged anyway. We both are.
Tonight I’ll try playing with him again. Let’s see if I have better luck this time. I hope he doesn’t interrupt me or do anything else that requires punishment. We might just have a repeat of last night.
