We went to church this morning and came home and had leftovers for lunch. My son used rub on pork chops and gave my husband money and sent him out to buy top round which he cut into steaks for the gas grill for supper. I heard something and thought Princess was in the trash. I caught her stealing the steaks on the stove. She wolfed down two raw steaks before I caught her, then almost became sick in the house. She didn't get sick once she was outside.
She snarled and growled at me when I tried to get her away from the stove.
I also found pieces of a pencil my husband used on a crossword pencil. His recliner has a plastic container under the right arm of the chair. The top of the arm lifts up and there is a space for a cup or a can and the remote in this container made into the chair. We haven't noticed this behavior before, but Princess is her own worst enemy because she grabs stuff and will eat it instead of giving it up. This occurs inside and outside. I have caught her with nails in her mouth. If she gets sick tomorrow, she will spend the day outside under one of the decks. There is a large Maxwell House coffee container out there with water in it.
If the food stealing and growling becomes something she tries often, I don't know what else to do with her, except to put her down. She definitely shows aggression when she gets a bone from the trash, a whole pork roast or two steaks. When I was bathing Crellie to take her to the vet, Princess ran down in the basement to the the workshop and grabbed Crellie's mouse. It is the only toy Crellie has and she growled at me when I made her give it up. The odd thing is that she will bring the stuff to me as if to show me that she has it and that I can't take it from her. I have no doubt that she would attack me after witnessing her behaviors with stuff she has stolen.
