Grr! I need to let off steam. We worked so hard with Rupert to get him to start sleeping in the kitchen on his own. It took 2 weeks of ear plugs and solid hard work to stop him screaming! However, this weekend we took him to Shrewsbury with us as we were at a wedding. My auntie knows someone with 2 Parsons JRs and she looked after him for us on the Friday/Saturday evening when we were at the wedding. I told her NOT to let him in the same room as her in the evening and if she was worried about him needing the loo (which he doesnt through the night now anyway), to put him outside on the landing. But no, she had him in the room with her, so he was an effing nightmare on Sunday night. He screamed solidly for 3 hours and then finally when I heard him clawing at the door I realised he had gotten out of his crate (which is only a material one). I waited till hed stopped for a minute then went in and hed chewed a massive hole and managed to push the zip out, and whats more is hed pooped all over it, but it was clearly a nervous one! So I cleaned it up, fixed the zip and took him upstairs as I didnt know what else to do. Then last night we did the same, locked him up and he got out again, only this time I cleaned the kitchen up (as hed pooped again) but left the crate open and left him in the kitchen, with the extractor fan light on. He stopped after about 40 minutes and the kitchen was spotless this morning when I went down. Im hoping hell be back to normal soon, but Im worried about the pooing. We ALWAYS let him out before he goes to bed but he very rarely wants to go number 2 as hes already been after having his food about 6 pm. So where the bloody hell does it come from?! Honestly, its hard work at times!
