I got Gizmo when I was 20. He’s going on 6 years old now and still he acts like he’s a two year old, into everything, tipping everything over and destroying everything in his path.
I get mad sometimes and I don’t know what to do but he’s just that way. I remember I used to be like that at one time and I think that’s why I love him so much.
He’s not to cuddly; he does his own thing; he likes to play every once in a while but mostly he drags and hides stuff, especially shoes, and runs around. I had him litter trained for a week then he just stopped using the box. I gave up and started picking it up. I personally think getting him was one of the better things I have ever done.
I know he doesn’t have to much time left but it’s been a blast. He’s gone fishing, walking, moved with me, been there through break-ups and new jobs, always happy to do anything and get into everything.
They need a immense ammount of attention and if you don’t give it to them, they find a way to get it. They are brilliant! Mine has figured out how to open doors with handles so I had to recently change to knobs. THEY HATE BATHS … LOL. I usually throw him in twice a week when I take a shower and blow dry him off when I’m doing my hair. I feel bad because I’ve been working so much lately and I haven’t been able to spend as much time as I want with him, so he’s been free range in my room and I clean up when I get back.
