I don't often post twice in one day. However, this strange cat has me baffled!
He came to our house about four months ago. He was skinny and whiny and very ugly, so that's what we called him, "Ugly".
After a couple of months he filled out and we started calling him "Buddy". Well, he looks better, but his behavior is driving me crazy!
First of all, he scratches! I fed him Monday morning and as I turned away he grabbed for my hand and left two bleeding holes in it. He has scratched Gary several times. He often grabs for my purse or anything else I'm carrying. He went ballistic last week when I had a hammer!
He whines!! He can finish a can of cat food and a half cup of dry food and spend the next ten minutes at the window just making noise! He whines at the sliding glass door when I'm cooking. He whines when he sees Babe. He whines at our bedroom window and once he took the screen off of it!
He follows me! He walks right beside me anytime I'm outside. Follows me to the truck. Follows me around the garden. Even tried to get next to me when I was pushing the mower! Drives me crazy because I'm afraid he will trip me!
Now, the strangest thing I have ever seen a cat do- he sleeps with my shoe!!! At first I thought the wind had just blown it over to the edge of the porch. No! He goes over to where I leave my "porch shoes" and gets one, and sleeps with it. I finally had to take a couple of pictures.
I don't know what I'm going to do with this guy. He is just too strange.
