Alfred likes to chew things.
He will chew plastic, like Jacoby, but unlike Jake, Freddy’s chewing is more…forceful.
Freddy chews not just to get inside a plastic bag (although, if it has food in it, Freddy will chew it), but he also chews for the sake of chewing.
He chews like dogs do. Nom…nom…nom…
I’ve started giving him bones. I mean, real, serious, dog-bone bones.
We had a smoked lamb leg after New Year’s. When we got all the meat off the bone, we let the cats pick the remainder of the meat off the bone.
It was basically the “Freddy and whoever can stand to fight him for it” show.
Freddy is pretty possessive of his bones.
Here’s a video of Freddy and Jake chewing on the lamb leg bone (click image for video).
Be sure you have the volume up to hear Freddy’s possessive growling (again, click image for video).
It’s gotten to the point where I am buying Freddy dog chew sticks to gnaw on.
And what’s worse is, he actually chews on them.
This is my first Aby with an oral fixation. I hope that, at least, it means he’s going to have awesome teeth.
Here’s a video of Freddy chewing on a meat-covered rawhide stick I got him from an awesome pet store in Örebro (click image for video). There’s no growling in this one, mainly because nobody else wanted to share it!
