Our beautiful rescue cat is a lovely friendly affectionate quirky little guy. We love him to bits! He's been stuck inside for almost 5 weeks now as he's new to us and our home. Going to let him out in a week or two. That was the plan... Well he's gone from content, sleepy, playful and a bit of biting/scratching when he gets over stimulated to a...monster! Overnight! Breaking things, bouncing off my chestbone from the floor, being aggressive, tearing the curtains down, climbing the back of the sofa with a crazy look in his eye and attacking me...all in like the last three days. I want to let the poor thing out but we need to wait as long as we can bear it...I don't know the rules but I think he's ready. This is normal isn't it?? I mean a 'caged' animal or human can only take so much right? Because it's like my cat has been replaced by another!
