So, the bonus room is Clovis' place to hang out when he is out bunning around. We have a couch up there and apparently this is now his new favorite spot.
The way we have the furniture arranged you can see the back of the couch from the doorway. When we first discovered his interest in the couch we'd try to sneak up on him to catch him on it because if he heard us coming he'd jump off in an instant. We could see the tips of his ears above the back of the couch, twitching, craning to hear us approach. I'm pretty sure he thought being on the couch was a no-no. We thought it was pretty funny.
One Saturday I was on the computer up there with him and he hopped up on the couch and over near where I was sitting. He was watching me, and I think, daring me to scold him for being naughtly. So I played his little game and gave him a pretend scolding.
I gave him a real scolding though when I discovered he'd piddled on the couch - twice. Why must animals mark everything? Well, now it's Clovie's couch.
