Update on Thunder

I think I might have figured out Thunder's problem. He has been pouting sporadically when I am ready to leave for work. It is a fairly recent occurance. I thought and thought about anything that could have changed to bring this on--and I determined it might be the weather!

Not directly, but indirectly. This has been the coldest winter in his life. On the very bitter days, I haven't been opening all the curtains. I will open the one where he likes to hunt the birds, but only partially. I think Thunder has been bored, and so he wants me to stay around and pay attention to him. Since it has been warmer and I open the curtains all the way, he is much happier and hardly pouts.

I hope the real bad cold is a thing of the past. It was minus 8 at my house this morning, but it is now in the 20's and the temps will be closer to normal this week.

It's been a hard winter on many pets this year with the cold. Cats hate change in their routine but thankfully warmer weather is on the way.

It was warm (30s) and sunny this morning. I opened all the curtains, the birds were singing and Thunder was his normal, happy self. Who would have thought the weather would affect an indoor cat so much!
