Morgan shows zero interest in these things if we're in the room and watching. It's only if he's alone that this has happened. We just need to be more careful that the tempting things get put away properly... It was a dumb slip-up on our part today.

We had an incident last Thanksgiving when we forgot to latch the closet (yes, our closet has a double latch so that Sally doesn't open the doors and let Jack in) and Jack go in there. There was a laundry basket of dirty socks and we were certain he had eaten one and took him to the e-vet. He had eaten something, but it was paper towels (lord knows where he found those in the closet), not socks.

I just wanted to update everybody that Morgan is back to his usual, goofy old self this morning. He thinks he's really special to be eating canned food for the weekend. I can tell he's VERY sorry. LOL

I do have to agree with you, Laur... NOT one of Morgan's better ideas (again).

I'm so glad to hear Morgan is okay. They do know how to scare us.

Hmmm ... separation anxiety?
While you're there he's fine; when you're not, he goes for and chews/eats something that smells like you. (clothing, towel, blanket)

Oh Im so glad there is a happy ending to that story. Good call bringing him to the vets, Im glad you did. That can cause a huge amount of problems, even infections.

One time Rocky ate a cigarette wrapper that blew into the backyard. Rocky was choking like crazy and we did not know what was going on. She just kept choking so we rushed her in. The vet X-rayed her stomach, nothing. Which was $200. He should have X-rayed her throat. She came home because the vet said she looked okay and of course they stop choking when they get to the vets, lol. Anyway, she ate some grass outside and her stomach was all weird, I was about to run up to her but my boyfriend said lets just wait, let her do what ever she feels. So I waited and she threw up a cigarette wrapper. People who litter I tell ya!!!!

But she ended up being fine. We took the wrapper to the vets to show him. I was kind of mad at him but I have faith in the guy. Hes put up with my obsessions bringing in my animals for no reason at all, just maybe sleeping funny or breathing funny, Im paranoid.

A couple times he said, Go home Courtney no charge. And rolled his eyes and giggled at me. I do trust him though. Ive been going to him my entire life.

Honestly, SA may have something to do with it, but at the same time doesn't really fit. When I say "alone" I mean Morgan had wandered into a different room, but my husband was in the house with him. That is the first time something like this has happed while somebody was home.

A week or so ago we accidentally left Morgan uncrated while we were at work all day, but he didn't touch a single thing in the whole eight hours he had the house to himself.

On Friday, he wandered upstairs on his own and ate the pajamas despite my husband being home with him. Also despite the fact that he'd already been fed dinner.

With the towel a couple months ago, Morgan was locked up while we were gone for the day, but we had left the mud towel (for wiping his paws) too close to the crate, so he pulled it in and ate it.


I'm not trying to say it isn't SA, but if it is, I have NO clue what his trigger is... because the three above scenarios tell me conflicting messages. I guess it's isn't pet ownership if something made sense. LOL!
