Anyone have any tips on how to train a pet to stop scratching at the door when he wants to come in?
After I had to fire the other dove for his bad attitude (details here), I’ve moved on…
I’ve been chatting with THIS little guy, and we’re working on a pretty decent act for the show. He’s going to (A) magically appear, and then (B) read someone’s mind.
Might put him in the show as early as this weekend.
To protect his privacy, though, he says he wants a “stage name” – Any suggestions, folks?
It is with great regret that I announce the discontinuation of Birdie’s employment in the show.
I had no choice but to fire him. He has had a very poor attitude as of late, which created a hostile work environment.
Granted, I did accidentally crush his favorite cage, but I apologized and offered to buy him a new one; he just gave me the silent treatment. Ever since then, he refused to speak to me, and refused to leave his cage. He just sat in there, silently sulking.
When I informed him that I would no longer be needing his services, he just stared at me in a threatening manner. He ignored my requests for him to leave – I had to physically remove him from the house.
He still hasn’t left the property. He’s still out there on the sidewalk, staring at me through the window (see photo, below). I think he’s trying to intimidate me. And, honestly, it’s working. I fear for my safety. There’s no telling what a disgruntled ex-employee will do – especially one who so obviously didn’t like me to begin with.
Do you think I should call the authorities?
Damn. He’s figured out the “lay face on something, glance up sadly, bat eyelashes, look cute, get food” trick.
