Loki skittish

Loki has never been good on smooth surfaces like tile or hardwood. He's definitely gotten better over the years, but he's never 100% comfortable. He's always afraid of slipping and sliding, which he does from time to time. It gets worse when his nails get long. Jujube also sometimes slips and slides when her nails get long. The difference is that she doesn't care if she slips or falls or runs into stuff.

This morning, I put down their food bowls for breakfast and Loki was nowhere to be found. It took him awhile to get into the dining room. Once in the dining room, it still took awhile for him to get to his food. Here's a clip: (By the way, the whining in the background is Jujube, who is waiting for her food, because we make them sit for their food.)

It looks like there's an invisible force field Loki can't get through.

Poor guy! Zuko grew up on hardwood floors - when we brought him home we would throw his ball down the long hallway and the poor guy would slide into the door at the end. Now - he's a master at the controlled slide. If he could play baseball he'd be able to steal home base and slide in SAFE!!!

Hahaha, it sounds like Jujube is also saying, "Loki! Come!"

i agree with gina; it does look like there's an invisible force field.

or, maybe it's more like the house is a room on a cruise ship and loki is just trying to get his see legs.

our shiba, taro (who has a blog at http://tar0shiba.tumblr.com/), seems to do fine on wood floors, but definitely needs to improve his sliding. once, when we were visiting family, he slid into the bird cage and gave himself a little scare!
