I Shall Have HELL to Pay!
I liken him to a drama addict. The kitty next door is just happy to see people. My guy is really a bully. He sees very few people and tends to pretend he is a "cat", friendly prr's and chats and rubbing of legs with visitors.
When they leave, he just sits and "plots my demise".
That was all his pictures EVER looked like. He never would have a clue as to how to take care of himself, but I always knew he waited for that day.... and then he got older and sicker and started realizing I was useful.
When I first started giving him treats like cheese and bits of meat from my own meals he thought that was REALLY COOL and now he literally would pull my hand away from my face to sniff everything I brought into the living room as a snack. He is a bully!
Now in his cage, he is like a grumpy old neighbor, complaining about EVERYTHING! He threatens them when they come to clean up after his recent fur ball, he showed real teeth with me today.
I have found that backing him down works. I grab his head and scratch behind his ears and he is fine. But it is hard to do in a box!!!
I brought extra dry food as he was eating well and they ran out of the bag of goodies. They didn't want to court the runs with the other issues he had!
I stayed briefly and will be back later today to just put my face in. He is the king of his domain and absolutely a mess away from home.
I will be wearing cowboy boots in 100 degree days for the weekend at least! He will not be quick to forgive me!
Other than that, he seems quite fine.
