Healthwise he is doing great, though we have scaled his feeding back because he was conning everyone but me into giving him 3 meals a day - EACH of them! Part of his routine is to start yelling if he feels he needs food or husband isn't home or thank you is out too late (yes, about 9:45 he starts pacing and at 10:05 he starts yelling). thank you doesn't really have a curfew as long as he has all As and we know roughly where he is. But Morgan doesn't believe it. I walked into thank you's room to put something down & the cat was on the bed. I am NOT the one Capn likes to cuddle with and be cute with. I don't indulge him like husband does, so I am no fun. I asked Capn if he wanted me to pet him for a minute (yes, I do hold discussions with him & ask hiss opinion). Capn looked at me and then rolled his eyes all the way around like a teenage girl!!! It was HILARIOUS!! I haven't seen him do it that completely before,lol! He does know that I am the Keeper of the Catnip. I have to keep it in double ziploc bags up high because he has torn open every package we have tried down low - to the point of knocking off a glass jar until it broke! Last week he was being a pest over it, coming into the bedroom and not leaving, then having a fit as soon as the door was shut, etc... husband tried to get him out by asking nicely and warning him that the door was closing & staying closed. You should see the look husband gets when he says this stuff - Capn never believes it and is usually smirking at husband as husband waits to see if Capn will do what husband asked (Capn complies maybe 5% of the time to husband, lol!). The idiot cat then smirked at me to see what I would do. So I asked Capn if he wanted a "nuggle". I haven't seen him look that much like a deer in the headlights or leave a room so fast in quite some time, lol! FYI a 'nuggle' is being held and petted and fussed over, usually involving baby talk (which I didn't even use when my kids were babies). I use it when rewards don't result in appropriate behavior from Capn. It sure stopped the 3 am yowling in under a week! I think Capn would prefer a bath, with actual soap, to 'nuggle' lol!
