He used to spend large parts of the day snoozing in my studio
Remember the Guest Chair, just for Sherlock?
Now though... Hmmm.. He is driving me NUTS! In fact, he's driving us all nuts, but I'm here more often, so I'm getting most of this.
Allow me to explain...
Downstairs, Sherlock has a bed on the top of the sofa-back, where he snoozes when Humans are about.
He also has a bed on the dining room sofa, where he snoozes at night, or occasionally in the daytime. Usually he stays on the sofa and snoozes when I - or DH / DS - go upstairs; or else he follows and finds a place to snooze near to the Human of his Choice.
With me so far? Good.
But lately... Sherlock follows us upstairs, then wanders up and down the hallway, miaowing. He paces around and miaows - "Miaow-miaow-miaow-miaow-miaow-miaow...." - you get the idea. So we say, "What's up Sherlock? Come in here with us."
" " (silence from cat)
"Come on Sherlock, there's a good boy."
So, we leave him alone. He sits down and washes his face/paws...
He thinks no-one is watching...
He had started to sit on a plastic carrier bag that DS had left in the hallway, with some old stuff in for the jumble sale. For the record, Sherlock doesn't like carrier bags - their rustling scares him...
So, I replaced it with a cat bed, that he likes to sit on.
Except he doesn't any more - like to sit on this cat bed, that is.
This was left at the other end of the hallway over the last couple of days. I've been busy and haven't picked it up.
Then he starts again... "Miaow-miaow-miaow-miaow-miaow-miaow...."
J. has a tall bed. He is in bed reading, before putting out his light to sleep. Sherlock sits by the ladder.
He doesn't wish to speak with me... I should go away...
and let him sit here alone in solitude...
All alone, contemplating the stairs...
We're thinking of making him a sign -
