To be fair, Rafa doesn't get along with anyone who comes to visit. I am the only human he likes. He tolerates the Irishman.
Anytime guests come Rafa gets bent out of shape. He becomes anti-social as soon as he sees suitcases. (It either means someone coming or we are going and he is not a fan of either) Most of our guests have tried to befriend him...but then end result is always the same. I try to give the warning before
We know this about Rafa...and have come to a point that we expect it. Not like it mind you, but accept it.
But Rafa and my in-laws? That is a hate-hate relationship. The Irishman's mother does not swear...but I've heard her use choice words to describe my first furry child. And the rascal himself? She cannot enter the room or look at him without a hiss.
It is bad enough that Rafa takes it out on me...his one human love. He becomes super needy. I cannot please him and he ends up going for my ankles...which only fuels the choice words about that evil cat. It is a vicious cycle.
My mother-in-law in here until April.
Let's hope they can learn to
