A Co-Dependent Relationship

Is it possible to be having PTSD episodes after only one weekend with a VERY determined 10-month-old and an obnoxious 15-year-old cat?  I really think those two will be the death of me.  I am highly tempted to lock them in a room together and see which one emerges victorious soon in order to put an end to this madness, but as Kylee pointed out, "THAT would be a hard one to explain to CPS."  She's a wise one, that Kylee...  ;-)

Now that Monkey is crawling at the speed of light, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep him away from Kitty Cat Tommie.  It wouldn't be so bad if that stinking cat would just avoid the child by keeping out of arm's reach, but he seems to think he still owns the place, and sprawls out on the living room floor with his tail (aka. "pull toy string") stretched out in front of the excited toddler.  Believe me when I say that no good has come from this scenario as of yet.

After two full days of unsuccessfully trying to keep these two separated, I had finally had enough.

"Cat???  Why'd she do this to you???"

Yep...  That's right.  I lured the cat to the other side of the baby gate with food and water, and I SHUT IT! 

"I feel ya, man...  This really stinks."

Before anyone goes and gets a panty wedgie because I locked the cat in what appears to be a small space with no litter box, rest assured that darned cat had free run of the entire upstairs if he so wished. 
 
"Don't worry, man!  I'll bust you outta here!!!"

It appears, instead, that my cat is some sort of masochist as all he wanted in the world was get out of there and back into the living room where he would no doubt be pulled around by his tail again.  This would result in him beating Monkey over the head with his paws, resulting in a shocked 10-month-old whose feelings then get hurt because "Cat" actually turned on him.  I swear, these two have a truly toxic, co-dependent relationship.  ;-)
