Oh yes, he’s definitely got vision and hearing loss. Can’t see shit. And, his guard dawg days are long gone. Our upstairs hallway and bedroom door have curtains up for bthe summer for cool air containment, and he won’t go thru them at night. I need to remember to leave openings in the sides, because when I do, he has been able to maneuver through. And, at the top of the stairs, the kitchen light *sees* him, then his way is lit. Thanks for the reminderIs it possible he is having problems with vision or vertigo/loss of balance? Trudy definitely does not want to move around in the dark anymore. For a while she was spending part of the night on my bed and part on the floor. When she decided she wanted to get up onto the bed in the middle of the night, she would bark. I'd wake up, turn on the bedside lamp, and she would climb into the bed and settle right down to sleep. She would not climb up in the dark though!
Pico scratches things, anything except her scratching pole, when she needs stress relieve. Like when I was away all day or when the new neighborhoodcat chased her.Right?! Idk what got into him; he has not done it for months. And. he did not repeat the event for today, so….. I still think it’s *acting out* like a kid does, cuz one parent is gone
I’m not fond of the night time awakening, but, when my husb is home, he usually gets up with them and lets me sleep. I normally do most of the daytime stuffIs that what life is like with doggos (and cattos)? Nighttime snuggles, waking up early, and lots of walks? If so, it sounds awfully cute!
