I’m beginning to wonder if it isn’t something upstairs that’s scaring him. I have no idea. I don’t even know if he’s scared. I know something isn’t right.
I can’t remember what I’ve already written here. Friday is when I took him to the vet. I didn’t want to put him back in the sewing room but he was still biting and I ended up with my arm bleeding again so I put him in the sewing room Friday evening.
Saturday morning I went down and worked in there and he was sleeping on a fabric shelf but he didn’t have much to do with me. At least he wasn’t biting.
Mid-afternoon, I went upstairs, fixed something to eat, and was going to stitch for a while and thought maybe he wanted to come sit with me. I went downstairs. His pupils weren’t huge, I held him for a while and he even purred a bit, which he hasn’t been doing since he started biting. I hoped the pheromones were working and he was back to being a sweet kitty. I left the door open and he came right upstairs but almost immediately, he got up in my chair and bit me. I took him back downstairs.
Yesterday, Sunday, it was the same thing. He was sweet and purred when I held him in the basement. He came upstairs and he was obviously very agitated again. His tail was twitching, he had his back humped up and his pupils were huge and black. I sat and watched him and he was jittery and nervous so I took him back downstairs. I’ll just spend time with him down there and keep him in there for the week and see what happens next weekend.
I have walked every step of this house and cannot see anything that’s different that should be causing him a problem and I have not brought anything in that is scented or should be an issue. I did have a new lamp that arrived but it’s just a lamp and it’s in a corner and as far as I can tell, it isn’t on his radar. I had printer ink (cartridges) which I put in the printer which is in a bedroom and closed the door so he was in there for a while when I was in there but he isn’t going in there now.
When he came upstairs yesterday, he got on the back of the sofa for just a few minutes. He went into Addie’s bathroom where his food and water are upstairs, he walked through our bedroom, which is usually his comfort zone, and he came back into the living room and I saw how nervous he was so I took him back down.
I am at my wit’s end trying to figure out what’s wrong and how I can fix it.
In the sewing room in Texas, I had the radio on any time I was in there and I do the same thing upstairs here so I thought maybe that was it and turned the radio off before he ever came up.
It’s easy to know that nothing has come in because I haven’t been anywhere. I picked up groceries but it was only about $50 and I think everything went into the fridge. No doubt floss and charts arrived but that’s been happening for several months now.
I am at a loss as to what could be wrong. This is when I really need Vince. He would figure this out in a snap!
If anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
