Megat's new housing situation

Megat staring at the camera...wait till I get you!

Megat in profile...




Megat is getting the hang of screaming for attention, usually at 4 am. It was my fault for allowing this to happen. his voice is so shrill that I can't allow him to yell for long. So once he realises that I would get up when he yells, he would continue yelling for along time until I would let him out of his pet house, where he sleeps in. This morning he yelled continuously for 2 hours and started to bite at the opening flap of the pet house. He had torn the flap to his first pet house and now of course that house was quite useless to keep him (and the boys) safe at night. I had to put him in Bujang's pethouse for the time being. Bujang was very disgusted and refused to sit Megat's house (that I had now put in the living room) instead.
So I went to get him a house made of plastic with a green roof and red door. He would not be able to bite through this house :) The reason I need to separate him from the boys is because he would try to intimidate them. I do not want them to have ill-feelings towards him in turn.
I would like to think that Ms Akira's aggressive behavious towards Megat is just her trying to save the boys :) Her bark is worse than her bite anyway and she would just always scream like a banshee when she chases Megat but she has yet to physically take him on. But I also realise that she would usually leave him alone if he does not stand directly in her line of sight or draw attention to himself. But once she catches the sight of him, well....

Hmmm Megat is acting very strangely lately. Is he trying to be the Alpha Cat in the household?

Actually this was how he behaved when he first came. It actually took him about 2 months to bite through the door flap of his red pet house :) I should have done something about it but of course was very forgetful. He certainly behaves as though he wants to be Alpha cat, but when the boys chase him to beat him up, he would immediately sit close to me for protection :)

Naughty Megat...you don't want to be sent to camp in the car park, do you?
