I guess I must remain so; my experience runs only to cats who are litter box trained in the twinkling of an eye. Not so Remus, who turns out to be a she rather than a he (further exposing what I don't know concerning dogs). Last night she produced a gusher on my bed, before leaping off to finish on the rug. The cats were not amused.
Though Remus has an excellent disposition, she also seems not to like being crated. She protests with a piercing howl! At present, she is dish-rag floppy on my lap.
