    This isn't exactly a farm question per se, but I think the folks on this forum will be of the most help!

    First off, why not pen him somewhere he can't reach the couch? A bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, anywhere you can safely baby gate him. As other posters have said, couch-eating is a $$$ obstruction...

  17. On conniving escapee cats (need advice)

    While my 6 year old cat Puck has always been extremely sweet (sometimes suffocatingly so), he is very naughty.

    I think I'm going to get a quote from the custom welder, and talk to the Ford dealership to see if something might be...
