He's pretty much a blur when he's awake. Right now he's crapped out on the floor, stretched full length, next to my chair. He seems to be very 'video-oriented'...he watches television commercials and he loves to play catch the cursor on the PC screen. I think that has real pix potential.
He was a skinny thing when he hit here and we're trying to fatten him up....as it stands now, he certain looks like a skinny kitty with a bloated tummy - stretched as taut as a drum. It hasn't hit the floor - yet.
Despite having broken one of my favorite models (Lockheed Constellation L-749/C-121), Picard remains in my good graces. Just because he's so damned cute. He's actually quite adorable, aside from his cuteness.
So...Picard has had his first "thinking outside the box" experience. On the bed. In two different locations.
Consequently, he has been banned from the upstairs (master bedroom and my 'library' with PC station) until such time has he has reinforced his use of the litter box on the main floor. He also got his first gander at the basement, when he followed me down there to stow tinned foods. We figure that the upstairs will probably be reopened for him (with higher expectations, of course) at some indeterminate point in the future. The basement will be opened to him with the same expectations, plus, we were considering moving his litter box down there....but the more I think about it, the less I think it will work. Leaving the door to the upstairs open is a different thing than leaving the door to the basement open...somehow.
You could try putting an extra litter box upstairs instead.
Yeah...we were forced into that with the elder Hobbes....which is why we wish to not repeat it.
What would be the problem with that then? I don't understand. I shall have to buy a second one for the new house, but that's mostly because I don't want to have to leave doors open so they can go to their litterbox on another level of the house.

The Earth laughs in flowers ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Hamatreya"...
Cats are clean animals, their instincts tell them to use fresh litter so that when they try to cover it up they don't get stuff in their claws. The only way to deal with that is to have one clean litter tray at all times.
