Okay, first some background.
I have two cats, Ransom and Kyrie. Both came from the animal shelter, hence are spayed/neutered. Both are indoor cats. Both are about five years old,
no relationship to each other.
We adopted Ransom on the day he was scheduled to die. Literally. I had gone online to the local animal shelter, looking for a new kitten, and found
Kyrie. I later went back online and saw a picture of this tiny kitten with his kill date scheduled for that afternoon. It took a LOT of frantic phone
calls and $100 adoption fee (hence the name Ransom) but two days later that kitten came to live with us.
Ransom was 3/4 feral, probably why they were going to euthanize him. In the time he's lived with us, he's let me pet him maybe five times. Oddly
enough, he loves my son and lets him play rough and tumble games.
So to the weird part. All day today, Ransom has paced our house, meowing loudly. All three levels, constantly moving.
I've done everything I can think of...clean water, check. Clean litter box, check. Fresh food, check. Favorite hiding places available for
Three times today he has come to me for petting. Remember, he's still half feral and quite disdainful of all humans (except my son). Still, he's
pacing the house, calling. He paws at the door, jumps into the windows, but when I go look there's nothing going on but a rainstorm.
This has been ongoing for almost seven hours now. Until about ten minutes ago, Kyrie just ignored him. Now she's starting to pace the house and call.
Only difference is, she comes and jumps in my lap, pawing at my arm while calling.
I haven't the foggiest idea what's going on. Hoping someone has some ideas, I'm starting to get a little freaked.
