You may have seen my post to Catnipped, detailing how we got our cats, Edgar
and Agatha. As part of my post, I posted a question, which would have been
easy to miss if you didn't not carefully read the whole megillah.
So here it is again.
The cats have been in our home for about a month now, and the mutual
affection is growing. They come to cuddle, they ask for treats, but they are
not allowed in the bedroom when we go to sleep. That's one of Mrs. Jay's
rules. They do come to visit when we go upstairs at night (they cuddle, then
they leave) and they do come in the morning when we wake up to demand a
morning treat (a couple of Temptations or Greenies thingies) and to look out
our window. (They do have windows downstairs and they can look out all day).
BUT, last night, for the first time, they sat outside our bedroom all night,
meowing very softly and scratching the door. Up until now, they stayed
downstairs, ate, slept, or did whatever cats do at night. Is this normal
behavior? Took a great deal of effort on my part not to let them in during
the night. We really don't want them climbing on us while we sleep.
