WHY DO CATS DO THAT? (quoted from a book) I often get asked by friends "Why do cats...." and my answer is "Because they are cats." Your cat may be doing things that you think is very strange but we do a lot of things that drive our cats nuts too. You pet the dog in front of him, move his favorite blanket, change the location of his food dishes or litter box and throw away all the lovely gifts he brings to you, he caught that for you, remember.
We tend to leave them alone too much and cats do get very lonely. So just remember that he is a cat and respect him for what he is. Read as much as you can about cats and try to be the best owner around. He will be the best he can be then, too. ^..^
