Is it an earthquake? Is it a tornado? Is it a lava flow? No, we are getting a new roof. I do not want pieces of the old roof falling upon your heads along with other dirt. So, we have the catio covered to keep debris out. I do not want to have to go inside to clean it either. You still cannot go out in it. It will be too noisy and scary. And so it was, for some, but not for others. Scooby, who should be retitled Scooby the Fearless, took no notice of the hammering and banging at all, only occasionally looking upwards toward the sound of the occasional big thump. Marigold as well would just as soon sleep until it was over. On the other hand, Opie skulked about, and would sit by me for my magic protection from all scary things. As long as I was serene, no worries. Zeke burrowed into the back of the closet underneath the stairs, and had to be coaxed out. Then he went to his safe home under the bed, where he stayed all day until they quit for the night. It was only two days, and normalcy has resumed as though nothing has happened.
Scooby loves Opie, but Opie does not love Scooby. Here we have Scooby blocking the exit of the catio. Opie is wanting him to move out of her way, but he won’t. I defused the situation by pulling Scooby inside so Opie could come in. The eyes speak volumes.
But when the situation changes, there is no consideration for others by Opie.
