Hey there, Dr Basil!

My name is Terrance and I'm one frustrated feline. My brother, Gordon has been stealing my bed, snacks, and toys and it's driving me crazy. I need your help to put an end to his thieving ways! Here are some of the things my brother has been doing: - He sneaks onto my bed when I'm not looking and takes over. - He steals my treats when I'm busy playing with my toys. - He even takes my favorite toys and hides them in his secret stash! I can't take it anymore. What should I do? Sincerely, Terrance

This is my Expert Reply
Today I use the colour green, as this is renowned for its ability to calm frazzled nerves, and therefore being the purrfect choice for this particular purroblem.
Dear Terrance, I'm so sorry to hear that your brother has been causing you so much trouble by stealing your bed, snacks, and toys. It's understandable that mew're feeling frustrated, but don't worry, I'm here to help mew out. Firstly, I suggest that mew try to communicate with your brother. Sometimes, cats don't understand that they're causing problems, so it's important to let him know that his behavior is bothering mew. Mew could try meowing at him or even giving him a gentle swat to let him know that what he's doing is not okay. If that doesn't work, mew could try using your claws to mark your territory. Cats use their claws to communicate, so scratching your bed, toys, and snacks will help your brother understand that they belong to mew. This is a natural behavior for cats, so don't worry about damaging your possessions! Another strategy mew could try is setting up a decoy. Leave a fake toy or snack out for your brother to steal while mew hide your real stuff somewhere safe. This way, he'll think he's getting away with something, but mew'll still have your favorite things. If mew catch him in the act, mew could try giving him a good scare. Pouncing on him or hissing loudly will let him know that mew're not to be messed with. This might be enough to make him think twice before trying to steal your things again. Finally, sharing your stuff might be the best way to stop him from taking your things. Offer to play with your brother or give him a treat in exchange for leaving your stuff alone. This way, he'll learn that there are other ways to get what he wants without stealing from mew. I hope these strategies help mew take back control of your bed, snacks, and toys. Remember, communication is key, so don't be afraid to let your brother know how mew're feeling. Good luck, Terrance!
Yours most sincerely
Dr. Basil
