I keep thinking this but forgetting to post it: great name, Rowan.

Are
you an Ann Rice fan?




Someone finally gets the reference!

Yup, named after Ann's character.


G What a character! Unforgettable.

He isn't that interested. But we do use them. He also has a lot of
different balls, mice, assorted toys which appear and disappear. I
alternate them. He is not interested in catnip or television.

Also, he does get time in the hallway every day. He explores. It's an
inner hallway. He cannot get outside. He looks around and then lays at
the door. The apartment is only about 400 sqare feet. We are talking
tiny.

Get a floor to ceiling cat tree. I have a couple of them. I also have a
utility cart in front of a big window so they can look out and then I have a
bird feeder in front of that window. Get some interactive toys like feather on a stick toys and play with the cats.


I suspect your cat may just be plain missing his old territory rather
than being upset at the size of your new place.

Thanks for your insights. Beleive me, I know everyone has good
intentions with their suggestions. I didn't get a dog. I got a cat.

I
didn't want the responsibility of taking a dog out. I thought there
might be other ideas.


You seem to think the cat needs more space. If you won't walk him,
what solution might there be? To move to a larger place? I'm just not
sure what you're asking here.

Oh my god. Can't you move? I don't know how you can stand that, let
alone two cats. There has to be an alternative.
