Scare Tactics

Ginger was given a toy butterfly that flaps its wings and rolls on the floor to music. I think it's a precious toy; however, Ginger would not agree because it scares the living daylights out of her. It has been in the bottom of her toy basket until recently. We have been having problems with her opening the TV cabinet doors and pulling out all of the movies. Hutson decided to use the butterfly to our advantage. He put the toy in front of the cabinet doors, and she has not walked nor crawled anywhere near the thing in two weeks. Is this mean and ugly? Yes. Am I enjoying not telling her 50 times a day to stop opening the doors? Absolutely yes!!! Now we only need about ten more to place all around the house to keep her out of other trouble (mainly the garbage can since it's her new hangout).

Ok, this one is just mean of me, but I had to post it. I needed to convey the strong dislike Ginger has for this toy, and I think this picture captures it perfectly. She practically ran to the other side of the room.
