Thanks, Barb. Did the Nature's Miracle earlier today with the fan on it. I think the comforter took most of the hit, and it's off to the laundromat tomorrow.
The Verb has pulled this before, but on pillows (easy to wash). We wound up keeping the door shut and him out in the garage at night for a while, then no further issues. Checked with the vet, who found nothing (this was last year). He showed little interest in the area last night or today, but he's on notice.
This follows a recent outdoor escape, along with more aggression toward stepsister Zoe and more early-morning vocalizing. Typical pattern. Is he reminded of what he's missing and acting out, or just reacting to smells he encounters outside?
Background: He's the younger of my two fixed males (8 and 11), who were indoor/outdoor before we moved in with my boyfriend and his indoor-only female 3 years ago. He has been aggressive toward her almost from the start. Must be her fault he's stuck inside and all that... plus she's there. And she's a GIRL.
She's finally figured out she's not going to die, but she's not having fun! Never any broken skin, just a lot of wappin', growling, hissing, etc. Occasionally I find a few drops of urine, like a marking. This bed one is not spray; neither were the pillows.
Big alpha cat (Pae) occasionally corners Zoe, but she's mostly too quick for him. Plenty of boxes on both floors, both boys were fixed as kittens, big cat is OK with the indoors thing as he's very human-focused and always delegated the hunting to Verb anyway.
