Today, Smokey is showing off a few drinking spots around the house...We have had to move a few glasses and bowls because of wild kittens, but that's ok. Everyone is adjusting!
This glass does not sit here normally...Smokey was being spoiled this day!
We have had to move this container to the sink, so if it gets knocked over, it isn't a big deal. This container collects the cold water that runs before it turns warm when doing dishes. We then give it to the birds. Of course, the cats like to drink from it too!
Medically, Smokey is doing pretty well. We just rechecked our blood work, and his thyroid is in the normal range now, so we will keep going with our pill. He is eating pretty good, but did lose an ounce last week, so I'm giving a couple of appetite stimulants each week to help encourage eating. He is still getting fluids a couple of times a week, and tolerates that ok.
He has started going downstairs at night and just talking and talking! I used to think he was lost, and would go get him, but now I'm thinking he is being a brat. I don't go down to get him, and he comes back to bed in about 15 minutes. We snack and snuggle, and sometimes he'll go back downstairs and talk some more, and sometimes I can get him to go back to sleep. Has anyone else experienced this? I can't tell if he is being forgetful about where his food is located (we have two cages for him), if he is wanting to play because he slept all day, if he just wants attention, or what...I'd like to figure it out, so I can get a good nights sleep again!
I've thought about closing him in my bedroom at night and just leaving his bowl of food on the floor and see what happens. Of course, this would mean, Tanner wouldn't be able to sleep with us, so that isn't ideal.
I welcome any suggestions you may have...
