Post 803: high anxiety…!

Nothing seems more anxiety-inducing for Andy and Dougy than change. Today, there was change.

Brr! Dougy iand his brother Andy are very anxious about something. What could make them so anxious?

Yes, every time I clean their fountain, the boys act like I’m taking their water away forever, and run around the room trying to follow me while I carry the dirty fountain to the bathroom to dump the water. 

I finally bought a second fountain so I could minimize downtime to how long it takes to move the old fountain out to the bathroom and come back to the dining room to put the clean fountain in place to be filled.

Even then, I have two little fuzzballs nervously watching the whole process, sniffing at the water jug, the empty fountain, me…!

I cleaned their water fountain and put in a new filter!

In the bad old days when I had just one fountain, the boys would do without water for maybe 30 minutes or so while I cleaned it, reassembled it, and refilled it.

In time, maybe they will get over their anxiety when they realize the bad old days are gone forever.

    • No kidding! They force me out of bed (2:00 AM for a 2:30 AM feeding, which used to be a 6:30 AM feeding when I first got them as wee kittens!) In the afternoon, if I don’t feed them when they expect to be fed, they are hounding me till i do. No pun intended…!
