Daughter is rough with our senior kitty
My 9-year old daughter who has always been an animal lover is now suddenly being very rough with our 13-year old cat, Kiki. This has started in the last 6 weeks - basically, the start of summer break. My husband works from home, but since he is working, he probably isn't giving her as much attention as she would like. I think she's bored, but since I'm at work M-F for about 10 hours a day, I can't be there to intervene. My daughter chases the cat around incessantly, squeezes her too tight and picks her up in awkward positions. I have tried talking to her about why she shouldn't do this (she's scaring the cat, the cat is old and she could really hurt or injure her, etc.) but she just won't listen. Any suggestions on getting her to stop, given the fact that I am not there when it happens and my husband is consumed with doing the job he's paid for to be policing how our child treats our cat?
