What could these two pictures possibly have in common? Buzzy is adorable, but he does have a little flaw. He feels compelled to scratch soft fabrics. My new bathroom rug is quickly balding. I have to groom it every time he gets in there. He gives carefull attention to several other rugs, but this one must be substandard. I do tell him,”No!” He is pretty forgiving, just gives me a hurt look and walks away. I’ve thought of flapping him with a hand towel, but that seems a little extreme for a ten-year-old gentleman who’s never endured a flap. I guess I need to buy a better rug or keep the door closed.
