Default Bucky's Lament


Since the apartment soaking, Bucky has stayed as close to me as he can
When I am out of sight, he cries loudly (Senyah says annoyingly). At times,
he let's out what I call a "siren meow" - very plaintive and very like a
siren.

I call out to him and tell him "I'm in here, sweetie!" at which time he
comes running, emitting little meows to me the whole way. If I'm lying back
reading, he comes and lays down next to me.

Every now and then, he opens an eye and reaches out a paw to make sure I'm
still there. I will be so glad when this fiasco is all over - maintenance
men gone, blowers gone, furniture put back in place - so that Bucky and the
rest (who are dealing with it) can be comfortable in their daily routines
again.

I tell Senyah she should call out to Bucky and try to comfort him, but she
says Bucky isn't really interested in being a "Senyah kitty" (big grin).


Hugs and Purrs,
Mark

Do you have a small radio that you could leave on where he could hear the
"talk shows"? Perhaps it would comfort him. MLB

I can just imagine this - it's a bit like what Licky does. I think that
easily frightened cats get more needy than more confident cats, because
the confident ones can come up to you whenever they like, but the nervous
ones are often too anxious. It must get very lonely for them, hiding out,
or only trusting one person, who therefore must be accessible at all times.

I call out to him and tell him "I'm in here, sweetie!" at which time he
comes running, emitting little meows to me the whole way. If I'm lying back

That's adorable. (Smudge does this outside - well, minus the lying down
part. )

Every now and then, he opens an eye and reaches out a paw to make
sure I'm still there.


I think he has a bit of an "object permanence" deficit. Meaning that
when you are out of view, he's not sure you exist anymore. Babies (ie,
human) are like this - they haven't yet learned that "out of sight"
doesn't mean "no longer existing". I forget at what age children learn
that things go on even when they can't see them. Perhaps Bucky has had
too many abandonments or other scary experiences, and doesn't trust
anything he can't see and feel and curl up with? You're such a good
cat daddy.`

I do this with my boys when I leave the house. I have no idea what
difference it makes for them, but it makes me feel better.

I'm sure it will be a lot less stressful for all of you when
everything is back to normal. Rosie and Cinder are sending soothing
cyberpurrs to Bucky.

Aww, poor Bucky. Only his Paw will do. Mir does this cute thing
sometimes when I call her. She comkes running and makes this sound with
her mouth shut - mmMMmmMMmmMMmmMMmm - the rhythm is caused by her steps
making a harder MM each time a paw hits the floor, if that makes any sense.
