|He is very vocal anyway due to his breed and I have now worked out his different noises. There is nothing medically wrong with him, he has had several vet visits recently and they have decided it is behaviour related. These noises are his "feed me" or "give me attention" noises!!
He is a rescue so I don't know his exact age but roughly 5. He is an indoor cat and has plenty of stimulation, play time with me, on his own and loads of windows to watch the birds and outside world.
Issues - all of these I inherited, nothing new and no doubt caused by being rehomed so many times in such a short time.
Fur loss on his back, worse when stressed.
Very sensitive tummy - RAW has been amazing though and he has formed poop for the first time
Vocalising - no doubt learnt behaviour as he was shut in a room and only saw someone when he was fed :-( (his history still makes me sad)
HUGE appetite - again, very typical of his breed
Seperation anxiety - this comes and goes and is fairly mild. Doesn't help that I live on my own so I am his only guardian.
Waking at 5am and howling until fed. I have tried everything with this and got the feeder timer so he stopped hassling me but it didn't work! I am once again folling the "ignore it" principle but he never totally shuts up.
Hmmmmm think that covers it.
He is getting a frozen mix by natural instinct (UK based) has all the bones and everything and he absolutely loves it.
I HAVE to still give him kibble in his feeder timer as I am at work all day and he doesn't cope with going all day without food. I am however considering changing this.
I have just bought some chicken wings, thighs and drumsticks. I know wings are ok.........are the others? I am hoping that something that takes him longer to eat will make him use his brain a bit more.
He is ADORABLE 90% of the time He is extremely affectionate and I love him to bits which is why I have tried everything to help him. I want him to have the best
That enough info ?
