Just a note...in addition to checking him out at the vet, also realize that this is the season for critters to be born...
Short story. Two years ago, I thought my 4 cats had lost their everlovin' minds. Leaping at the ceiling; dancing on the bedstead. Climbing the
walls, yowling at the wall, growling at the wall. Attacking anything that moved, and some that didn't. Chasing dustbunnies and pushing each other
around. This happened nightly. I swore up and down we were due for a big quake...even made a post about it somewhere else. I knew it was gonna come.
About a week after the first epsiode of "Cats Gone Wild", I was laying in my tub. I submerged myself, and bolted right back out of the bath...I had
heard some scratching in the walls, and a sort of coo-ing sound; a humming coo.
Come to find out, after some investigation and much caution, I had a Mama Racoon with a pup (kit? Dunno) hanging out in my walls, between my bedroom
and the master bath. Actually, I found out when the 'coon tried to walk in my house from the back porch, but that's another story (involving
neighbors coming to my shrieking rescue while other neighbors called the cops...but I digress...). I didn't believe it, because I live smack in the
middle of a metropolis, but there she was...and currently I have a possum that doesn't play possum when confronted...LOL, I'm waiting for the
alligator to crawl out of the storm drain next.
What my cats were sensing/hearing was the movement in the walls from the Mama and baby, and it set them off. They all think they're the best mousers
in the world, although none have ever actually hunted. So their instincts were up and running.
Perhaps you have a similar visitor nesting in the wall...it's that time of year, so it might just be you have a lurker.
Regards to all-
