We have had a bad time, over the last few months.One of our cats died, suddenly, from Cardiomyopathy and a few weeks ago our old dog became sick and had to be put to sleep.We have one dog and two cats. The dog has been different, he is far more "clingy" and cries for attention a lot, but on the whole, he is fine. My main concern is for one of the cats, Bramble. He has become extreemly nervous. He has to psych himself up to go out of the door in the morning. He won't jump on certain tiles on the patio, he leaps in the air if he sees or hears "things", sometimes the "things" are not even there!!..He just seems a nervous wreck...bless him. Our other cat, Smudge, is a right little rouge...he has been bringing Slow Worms home! As you know, they pretend to be dead, I often pick them up and put them back over the wall. He must of brought one home one day, put it in the conservatory and got bored and left. The Slow Worm thought.."my lucky day" and wriggled into a cupboard...I opened the cupboard and found him wriggling inside...this seems to of been the final straw for poor little Bramble and he seems to be scared of his own shadow...has any one else had such a scardy cat....?...any tips on how to boost his confidence would be much appreciated.
