He will not admit this though. But he proper loves him now.

How do I know this?

His highness gets locked in at night mainly so he doesn't invade neighbour's house. Cat flap turned to setting where he can come in but not get back out usually around 10pm. I wake up at around 4am this morning and DH is up, faffing around in various rooms. I ask what he's doing and he says cat hasn't come in yet. He comes back to bed and lasts about 10 minutes before he gets up and says he's going to check the road for "peace of mind". He was out for 30 mins in his PJs

(2 minutes after DH walks out front door, his Highness saunters in through cat flap and curls up on his side of bed). grin

They luffs each other grin

Ha! Sounds like my Dh "I'll go looking then because you don't love him enough".

Our cat is poorly at the moment...I text him cat was chasing me around the garden...he text back

'That's good. My little boy is feeling himself again' grin

Aw, hope your cat is on the mend Oldraver

Fluffy apparently, I obviously didn't care enough AND it was more for his peace of mind about my peace of mind. ???

DH got up at 6am this morning to refill the food bowl. Voluntarily. It's possible that instead of forming a bond with the cat, he's actually a pod person.

Or both? smile

'My boy/girl'. Those fateful words. smile

Thanks for asking OP...He has diarrhea which could be a reaction to the Metacam he was on but he also has a temp...

I cant yet persuade OH to give 'his boy' his tablets when he gets in at 6am...which would be a great help.

cozietoesie Sun 26-Jun-16 12:54:34

He likely doesn't want to be 'Mr Bad Guy'. wink

Oldraver Sun 26-Jun-16 12:59:00

Probably...he also isnt that used to handling cats..I've never mastered the 'getting a pill down a cat either.

He did sat that he felt mean and the cat couldn't understand why he didn't have his early morning Daddy treats as they are empty stomach tablets.

I dont think Ernie understands the concept of empty stomach

Relations have soured somewhat after a post-breakfast mouse dessert was flung around the hallway confused

I've always found these guideline for administering tablets very useful grin

Thank you Lemon! I used to have that years ago, but I lost my copy. Now I've finished wiping the tears from my eyes, I will take a copy grin

Fattycat wants to tell you all that she took her two pills like an angel.

cozietoesie Sun 26-Jun-16 19:44:46

Now if I hadn't known better, I'd have said that that was a very picture of quivering furry resentment. smile

Just goes to show.

Oldraver Sun 26-Jun-16 21:34:06

I love the cat pill guide....I was given a booklet about giving pills...you can see what Ernie thought of it...

MaddyHatter Sun 26-Jun-16 21:36:30

i've found if you gently wet a dreamie, and then stick the pill to it, they generally eat it...

Vinorosso74 Sun 26-Jun-16 21:40:49

I love those guidelines! First time I saw it I was crying. Fortunately our cat isn't too bad to administer tablets to. I remember as a kid my parents used to get our poor cat on top of the chest freezer and my mum would wear leather gloves to reduce scratch risk!
