I am ashamed to admit it, truly ashamed, but we have a bully at our house. We have for quite some time, but now he has become a tyrant. It is just shameful.
I have done many things to help him to overcome this horrible trait, but to no avail.
I have watched him chase his lovely mate off in a very ungentlemanly way. She comes silently, looking, trying to make sure that he isn’t there before quickly taking a small drink and hurrying off. So, I purchased her a feeder so that Squeaker the Greedy would allow her to feed.
But no….after I purchase the second feeder, he has begun to lie in wait for her. There he sits fluffing himself, just waiting………yes, waiting for his mate to come and feed so he can chase her off. Shameful…very shameful!
What makes it more shameful is that I just sit back and watch.
