I made up a list of house rules for both kids this evening. MB was nice enough to help me. But, since the kitties have been being really bad, I came up with a list for them to: No eating and/or digging up of my plants. No breaking of my candles. No climbing of the screens. No walking on my head while I'm asleep. No hissing, spitting or growling at each other. All material deposited into the litter box is to be completely buried. No pulling of claws on furniture or walls. No bothering the dog while she's eating. No attacking my feet in bed unless the comforter is over me (OUCH!). No taking my chair when I get up to go potty. No fighting over the windowsill. Take turns. No sleeping in the basket of clean clothes. There is always a basket of dirty clothes. Sleep on those. Consequences for breaking these rules results in loss of catnip privileges. I'm going to whip everyone in this house into shape, including the animals. Now, I just have to teach them to read.
