Drywall eating JR
I've had her since she was 6 mos old and she'll be a year in a week. She's so sweet and smart and good in many ways BUT can be just the opposite. Stubborn and spoiled. She plays with the cat but (doesn't know when to quit...cats and dogs have different ideas of how to play. Coco, the cat puts up with her for so long then she's finished. Coco scratched her and she was having a hard time healing because it was in a perfect scratching place. Had to take Kirby to the vet and apply a spray and crush pills for her food. Not a problem cause she'll eat ANYTHING and does. During this time I guess we both got stressed out since I was having to run her down several times a day to spray the scratch with the anti-biotic....she doesn't like to be messed with, nail clips, or to be brushed etc....so she started eating the wall in the hallway. By the time I realized what she was doing she got a paper dollar size patch of drywall paper off (and ate it) and would have taken chunks out of the drywall if I hadn't noticed. Now I know she's still got her eye on this spot and has to be watched constantly. I'm desperate for a solution to this????
