Monday Mischief – How to Bug Big Brother!

Yes, we’ve ascertained that Sabre is fairly fond of little Pixels.  However, no matter how cute you may be, there are certain sibling duties which need to be performed.  Annoying big brother is a vital skill to acquire.    

“Big Brother Bug” is a great game and crucial to boredom avoidance.  It is particularly effective if you can find Big Brother already ensconced in a nice, deep slumber.

Step 1 – Pat him on the head to wake him up

Step 2 – Pretend it wasn’t you.  Try to embellish your face with the most innocent of expressions whilst looking the other way.

Step 3– Give his toes a good sniff.  If nothing else, the tickle of your whiskers should help wake him.

Step 4– Get distracted by his now wonderfully swishing tail

Step 5 – Do the unthinkable.  Sniffing his…um…nether regions is sure to get his attention

Step 6 – Receive a good clobbering for that gesture

Get something of a clobbering for that

Step 7 – Go in for the neck (I’m sure you’ve seen your big Lion cousins using that tactic to great effect)

Go for the neck

Step 8 – Break free of the inevitable wrestle hold (Mommy Lions never explained that consequence on Animal Planet).

Step 9 – Great, now you’ve got his attention and can settle in for the ultimate huggle bunnie sleep with big brother.

Great now you've got his attention

  1. Henry has a habit of jumping on his big brother Archie’s back at the moment and grabbign him around the neck and pulling him down. Archie always lands on top LOL

    • Siblings! Henry deserves to land on the bottom if he’s going to do that 🙂 Sabre finds it quite thrilling to wait on the arm of a chair until Litchi (the dog) walks past. He then pounces on her back and goes for a bit of a ride. Litchi remains stunned by this behaviour 😀

  2. My bipeds used to tell Mulberry to stop teasing Pippin, but the first time Mulberry let Pippin walk by without jumping on him, Pippin turned back and wrestled with Mulberry!

  3. Pixel is the most promising strategical mind of our century! 🙂

    • Hi there Dennis, look forward to finding out how the guide works for you. Yip, the cranky old types tend to take offense to this type of nonsense. You could get hurt so I’m glad you won’t be trying it on Tucker. Good luck to Trixie, though, she’s not going to know what happened.
