My cat won't drink water from a bowl, it MUST be from the purified tap and running.
He sleeps under the covers, and yes the bed doesn't get made if he is in it.
The heater isn't working (and it got cold here, down in the 30's) and the repair man needs a part so we are suffering with just the fireplace. Cat isn't stupid, he stands there warming one side, then the other.
I have an electric blanket, but chose to spend the night at a friends house rather than freeze in here. So, my room mate TURNED on the blanket for the CAT! I laughed at that (but had made a comment about the poor kitty not having the blanket on only to find it was!).
He gets "walked" outside. He doesn't go out of his area though. Trained him on a leash, now he knows where is boundaries are.
He gets up every am at 0200 for treats and to play with my room mate who comes home at that time. Then he comes back to bed with me.
If we get up off the couch, he sits in our spot. And we relocate.
Cat won't eat people food (except steak cut up special) or wet food. Tried them all... he eats IAMS.
