posticon Couch strike


My cats are still on strike against the new couch. We are on day 12.

Joseph will jump up beside me, rub my arm and jump back down immediately.

I have barely seen Jacob for 12 days. I get to see him at a distance or at the food dish but he will not get on me or the couch. emoticon He is not a happy camper.

Bob doesn't seem to care one way or another about the couch.

 emoticon emoticon emoticon

Re: Couch strike


Put their dishes of food on the couch?

No, don't want to do that, but what to do!?

Re: Couch strike


Before you go to do your [sign in to see URL] after you have changed into clean Pajamas'[sign in to see URL] your dirty ones, (that smell like you) and lay them over the couch when you go to bed or anytime you are gone.
Might entice them to get up there to be "with" Momma when you are gone.

Oh, yes. Anything that has the "essence of mommy" on it. Daisy loves my sweaters. They will get used to smelling you near and on the couch and learn it is not some foreign thing that has invaded the house.

Re:


Well there was a breakthrough this afternoon. I sat down to read my book. This is the normal time for Jacob to cuddle. Well, he watched me sit down and he jumped right up like he once did and then he flattened his ears and looked around and jumped down and hid.

Progress!

Re:


WooHoo! More progress! I just sat down on the couch with my notebook and Jacob jumped up on the arm of the couch next to me. I petted him for a few seconds and he nudged the computer. Then my mom came in from outside and he jumped down. He wouldn't have stayed with the computer on my lap anyway, but I thought this was great progress!

Re: Couch strike


Oh most definitely getting used to the couch! emoticon

I used that "essence of mommy" on one of my cats who used to sit in my lap all the time, till we changed from couch to recliner.
I put my PJ'S on the chair every time we left the house and in when she would start missing momma, cause I was [sign in to see URL] would run over and jump in the [sign in to see URL] soon, she was back in my lap. emoticon

Re:


The couch is covered with all of the blankies and quilts I had on the old couch. I took a picture but I don't have time to post it right now. I think I am going over there to sit. I haven't sat there at all today.

Today is Day 15.

Jeesh. They are really stubborn. Daisy would have claimed it at least the next day after it was delivered, if not sooner. She likes new things. You should have seen how fast she claimed her new bed. Whoosh!

Re:


Last night Joseph, not Jacob, was lovey all over my lap on the couch. That was his first. However, he has gotten up there a couple times before to rub on me. He never acted mad at me. He just couldn't figure out how to sit down correctly.

Today is Day 17 for Jacob. It is too early to tell what will happen.

Re: Couch strike


I wonder if Jacob senses some kind of contamination on the couch, maybe a warehouse cat has slept on it or maybe something worse happened. Could be just the factory smells and the smell of the materials but to have Jacob flatten his ears like that says that he thinks it's serious. emoticon

Re:


Day 19

I think he just got too flipped out when they rolled his old couch over to take it away and he was there. He just totally panicked and I couldn't help him. He kept trying to figure out what direction to run in and I thought he would have a heart attack. It is too bad I couldn't get him out from under the couch before they came.

I am sure there are also new couch smells. The formaldehyde smell was on it when it first came. That is gone for human nose now and Joseph is OK with it now and so is Bob.

Re: Couch strike


So Jacob thinks that since his favorite hidden sleeping place was discovered then taken away he now doesn't trust any couch anymore. That incident was very traumatic, poor kitty.

That is how it appears. He was totally panic stricken when they took the couch away. I never saw him so freaked out.

He is appreciating me coming to pet him and has let me do that for 3 days. That is good. However, no couch.

Re:


OK. I don't know if I messed up or made things better. I picked him up out of his bed and took him to the couch and put him on my lap. He flattened his ears and his heart pounded like it would come out of his chest. I crooned to him and scratched his favorite spots and then let him go. He jumped down but he did not try to scratch or anything.

Sigh.
