I just thought i would give an update on Ozzy since thanksgiving has passed and things are calmed down again. Hope all of you had a good turkey day
Having gone out of town for a few days, i was eager to get home and see how the little guy was doing. We had some friends come over while we were away to give him food and make sure he was okay. To my surprise, they told me he wasnt hiding the whole time they were here and was actually chasing his mice around at one point
When we came home, i didnt know what to expect. I put my bag in the room and went to look for him. After a good 30 mins of searching i found him curled up under my bed. I wonder if thats where he had been sleeping. I hope so, i plan on getting him used to sleeping in my room.
I willl admit that although i knew he wasnt going to run up to me with open arms, meowing with joy that his human has returned, i was at least hoping that he would at least come to peek at us. Nope. He barely even bothered to glance at me when i finally found him under thebed. x.x
I got settled in on the couch and found something good to watch while i wound down from the 15 hour drive.
Lo and behold, here comes Ozzfest! He jumps on the couch and just stares. I say hi and give him a huge grin. He responds with a loud MEEOW!! I dont know if it was an angry meow but he did seem a little upset. I reach out my hand and get that death stare iv been getting used to. I didnt get to pet him, but he did greet me at least. Ill count that as a win
Now some of you may be wondering, why in the world is this in the behavior section!? Well, i guess you have a point. But i DO have a question!
Ozzy has been giving me meows constantly. Iv always wanted a cat that meowed, but he just seems to meow for no reason! A lot of the time he meows because hes hungry, but every other time i have no idea what he wants..
I reach out my hand thinking he wants some pets, i get the death stare. I toss a toy across the room, he ignores it completely.
Do cats just meow to talk to you? Ill say things like "what is it?" "Where?" "Show me!" "What ozzy?" And he'll respond. Iv got this idea that he just wants attention but hes still too wary to come up to me for a good scratch behind the ears.
What do you guys think hes trying to tell me?
