My cat and me 2

y'all were so nice before on this..

I inhereted my Mothers old cat, he's at least 15, probably more..

it took Him 2 years, but I think he's decided living with 2 boys is OK.. and has just taken over the house!

but he used to sit in the guest bedroom bed/ window all day, watching cars and dogs go by..

now, he decided he likes my bed better, and won't leave my room all day!

is this normal? he has bright eyes and the vet says" he's just fine for an old cat" here is a pix of Him after he was sleeping in my garden all day! Ha Ha

Thanks, Eric Austin Tx

I wouldn't worry, but I've never owned a CAT BEFORE.

He's fine. Just establishing territory. Your bed is now his.

Does he hiss at you often like that? That's not normal.

Don't worry. Cats choose places as their own, like a dresser drawer, a closet, a bed. They stay there for awhile, then find a new place. And he probably feels safe in your room - he is a senior kitty after all. I'm thinking maybe he is yawning, not hissing...right? He looks alot my my sweet Negro Gato - the best cats I've ever had have been black cats. Love 'em.

I don't know Karen, I've got 5 indoor, 2 outdoor, and three refugees that visit here. That looks like hissing to me. I love my Boogity, he's a black kitty, but that look on that cat is "I'm peeves, leave me alone."

I am reluctantly acknowledging that you are probably right, Callisto...but you know me: the perennial optimist. I always look on the bright side until proven otherwise (which happens quite alot, actually). LOL

ha ha, I like that pix..

not a Hiss, but more of a Big Giant "MEOW.. and "where's my snax!"

that was a lucky picture, but he is quite old, and he sleeps "very hard" in my garden in the sun..

so I sort of "poked him" to wake him up .. and he did look a "little peaved" but I gave him his snack..

I think he has arthritus, because he walks very slowly, so I built him some small "stairs" so he could climb up onto my bed..

and now he's on my pillow all the time..

He's very quite at night untill about 5am and then he just slowly starts "meowing" untill I get up and feed him and let him out back again...then it's off to my garden again!

what a Hoot!

Thanks, Eric, Austin, Tx.

Oh, Sweetie, I know you're an optimist but and that's a wonderful balance to my pessimist. With that said, that is not a happy cat. I love kitties, I've had WAY WAY WAY too many, and I know when a kitty is way not happy.

Lol Eric, You still don't OWN a cat. Most cat people will tell you that cats own people; people don't own cats . I wouldn't worry about him choosing to sleep in your bed all day. Cats usually have one "chosen person" who they love and dote on, and they think everybody else can kiss their grits . He probably hangs out in your bed because he likes your smell and feels comfortable/safe there. Also, once they get that age, pretty much all they want to do is eat, sleep, and meander around the house and yard a little. He looks healthy to me--nice teeth .
