1. Two words: vacuum cleaner. The cat avoids it like the plague.
2. A friend's Yorkie was terrified of being locked in his little room
one night. He didn't mind being put in there provided the door
was left open -- that way he knew he wasn't trapped. But one
night when they shut the door the dog actually chewed a hole
in the door. (I like to think the family was smart enough to get
up at 3 a.m. after hearing hours of scratching and investigate,
but you never know.)
