Trying not to give negative reinforcements, I feel terrible if I get frustrated and bang on the metal to make a scary noise but she just doesn't seem to learn and I'm concerned that she'll end up breaking something, or electrocuting herself since cables seem to be a favourite. Any ideas?

A dog will sort it. Just make sure it is one that is too big to sit on top of the Playstation though as otherwise you'd need another solution for the dog.

Yes?

Well strawberry float, now I feel awful.

I logged into facebook and got reminded of a post I made 7 years ago today. It was the day my cat was put to sleep for having FIV and being really ill. I miss him so much, how has it been 7 years :(

These are really old photos, but RIP to my little guy.

You could try putting something on top of the playstation so she cant get on top of it, or as already suggested stand the playstation vertically.

Also try putting an empty cardboard box in the room, there's a good chance she'll choose to sit in that instead of inside the cabinet.

My daughter got a goldfish for her birthday yesterday, so that's officially our first family pet :toot:

The tank is a little barren (1 fake plant so far), but I intend on getting a sunken ship and maybe a little castle or something in there for it to swim around.

I know I shouldn't but I really, really want a French Bulldog. Or a corgi. Or both.

Maybe you can get a cross of both, then you only need 1 dog but get one of each.

Took Jack for a little swim down the nearby nature reserve the other day. He loves fetching the float thing so much, although he cheats and gets in the water as soon as he thinks you're about to throw it to get it faster. We're currently taking him to obedience classes to help to get him to hold off for things like that. We can throw a toy about 5 foot in front of him and he'll wait, but any more and he just bolts off.

Our eldest cat has got a problem with water retention which means he's been getting wider and wider as time goes by. Tonight I came home to find him wedged in the cat flap looking like the alien hanging out of John Hurt. If my wife had have been at home, I'd be getting a divorce because I just couldn't stop laughing. Poor bastard.
