Talking New Rupert Pics!

Update: Rupert is doing quite well. He and Kailey still sleep together every night His coat is getting nice and shiny (he got dusty when he was in Toonces' garage ). This week he FINALLY started focusing more of his scratching attention on one of his scratchers instead of the couch...but he is still an absolute monster at night after 3 a.m.!!! He won't stay off my kitchen table and he likes to knead and roll around on the tinfoil I tried to cover it with! He also spends a great deal of time jumping at the fridge, knocking the magnets off, and then swatting them under the fridge. He's a little , but how can you stay mad at this face?

You mean no one stays up to play with him at 3 a.m.????

He is gorgeous, for sure. No wonder he gets away with it

Aww, thanks for posting new pics! Was wondering how he was doing. He sure did settle in fast. Is hubby crazy about him now?
at the story of the magnets! Sounds like the boy is bored and looking for new toys! Have you tried the one that hangs over the door? The kitties here love it! They broke the original string so I had to find another one. But they love playing with it. Maybe that would help? So sorry about the table. You may have to admit defeat there unless you are very consistant with the No's and Off's and such.

We don't have a doorway that isn't accessible to the dogs yet, so I can't try one of those until we move. He's got plenty of toys that he loves to play with though....including the dog toys! He plays with their ball, Kongs AND Cuz (I have yet to get pictures though!). We play every night to tire him out too....he just really likes the magnets There are hardly any left now though!

So sorry about the table. You may have to admit defeat there unless you are very consistant with the No's and Off's and such.
I've tried to be really consistent....we never tolerate it when we can catch him. I think he knows he's not supposed to but just doesn't care if he can't see us. That's why I thought the tinfoil would help....to deter him when we're not around. But he LIKES it!

Maybe he was a metal recycler in a former life.

Too bad you can't get him another kitty for a companion...

He's a cutie, that's for sure! And sounds like a real character! Have you ever tried the flexible flat magnets for your fridge? hazel can barely get them off of hers--if Rupert can, he's a better man....er....cat than I!

Yeah, I'd read somewhere that cats don't like tinfoil or double side tape. I don't know what cats they are talking about because mine laugh in the face of tinfoil and double sided tape. I've just give up.

Rupert is a doll though. What a handsome boy.

Adorable

At least he just plays with the magnets & isn't nomming them

I've never cared about cats being on the table
