The cat is flipped out that all his kids are gone. How can I tell? He will not leave my side. He used to hang out outside most of the day. Sit on the deck, or lay in the grass. At night he would sleep someplace for a week or so and then find a new place. He never, ever slept on the big bed. Hated the big bed.
For the past two weeks he has been sleeping on the big bed, day and night. Unless he hears me in the kitchen and then he is right beside me. If I sit at the island, he sits under my feet. If I sit on the couch, he will lay on me. These are completely new behaviors.
Now when he goes outside, he is out and right back in again. I wonder if he is afraid someone else will leave while he is gone? Truthfully, I do not think he is that smart, but there is definitely something going on in that little kitty brain and I wonder if things will ever go back to normal or if this is his new normal.
