Since Staley has been born, we have had to shut Jake and Elwood out of our bedroom at night since Staley is now sleeping in there. This has been an adjustment, as they both generally slept in our room with us before Staley was born. Well, for the past 4 nights, around the time that we shut them out of our room, Elwood has run into our room and gotten under the bed where we can't reach him. He slinks back in the far corner and won't come out. We've tried calling to him, scolding him, and ignoring him. Nothing works. As much as I hate to admit it, this is a pretty smart plan on his part. Maybe I wasn't giving him enough credit. Of course, Zach has found that all he needs to do is dangle a shoe lace over the edge of the bed, move it around a little bit, and Elwood runs out from under the bed in an attempt to attack and capture the shoe lace. So maybe Elwood's strategic plan has a minor flaw. Regardless, they are still nice cats.
