Artie has a couple of new behaviors. I was wondering what you thought of it.
At first I thought I was hearing things, but I am positive I am not.
This is an example of it from yesterday afternoon. I was in the kitchen, cooking supper. I had salmon patties. I gave Artie some of the salmon before I mixed it.
He gobbled it up, then went into the living area, jumping on the top shelf of his tree. It is in front of the balcony sliding doors.
All of a sudden I heard a loud "MEOW"...not a pain call, but a cute call.
I was surprised. I went over to see him, he started rolling over (unusual for him), purring very loud. He wanted head butts and petting! He would not stop..then he got a bit rambunctious and started nipping at my head, but purring and playing!
I have seen him act this way before. I put the tree up in early January. He recently started acting this way. He gets lots of attention, as I am home with him daily.
This is what is really, past few weeks: Artie knows I am home, in another room, because he can hear me.
Every once in a while I will hear a soft 'meow'. It is as if he is calling me! I thought I was hearing things at first but, no, he is calling me! Just to come over, play chase, pet him or talk to him....
He cannot be lonely. I am home most of the day--just out for a few hours.
Artie just had a complete medical along with a senior screen--all is normal.
He turned 11 years old in early February.
His adoption anniversary in March 3. It will be three years that I have had him...
He is getting more talkative every day!
anyone have any ideas?
He has always disliked me talking on the phone, when he is curled up on my lap. As soon as he understands I am on the phone, he immediately jumps down.
Is he getting too possessive of me?
thanks for your thoughts
