13Nov22: Tsk! Tsk!

Why’s Andrew hanging his head in shame?

Could it be because he managed to hide from me all day, thereby avoiding medication two times?



When I couldn’t find him in the guest bedroom, I searched the apartment, then found him in my bedroom. “Someone”, it seems, forgot to close his bedroom door, a strategic error Andy made use of! As soon as I approached him, he ran under the bed, the one spot in the apartment that is foolproof for avoiding capture. 

I tried to coax Andy out throughout the day, but he won the fight to avoid me.

Round Two: more of the same. After I had a little tantrum, I said to hell with it. If Andy wanted to go blind and whatever would happen if he missed his hyperthyroidism medication, so be it. I didn’t give a damn! I took a nap. (I clearly needed one!)

When I woke up four hours later, my mood was improved, I no longer was upset with my little darling, and it was time to feed him. First, because I was on my bed and he had moved over to be next to the door, I scooted him out of my bedroom, using my foot to gently guide him out. After a game of “mousies in the kitchen cabinets”, I fed him a plate of kitty food.

My bedroom door is closed now. I hope Andy doesn’t remember there are other tough places to hide in the living room and the dining area because I am not in the mood to have another day like today!

  1. Not easy to catch them they are clever more than us always they find a new place to hide… This is a kind of medication fight. But you are the winner at the end. Thank you, Love, nia

      • However, if the bed is mine, the walking stick under the bed just shoos him to the other side of the bed. That makes him safe because of the size of the room and location of the door. Were I to go to that side, he’d slip out of the bedroom and hide elsewhere. While I’d eventually find and corner him, I am disabled. The chase would be more than I’d be up to. I’ve been there….
