Update and a question on Figaro's strange behavior. In November we got a new big screen TV and surround sound stereo system. We didn't have all the speakers installed and hooked up till during Christmas. We didn't really start to use the surround system till January. Do you think the new stereo with all the speakers - two on the wall, two in the ceiling and one main bass one on the floor and one main one on the TV, may be having an adverse affect on Figaro and this is why he hides under the bed all the time and wants to run outside anytime you open the door??? I've turned the bass down, and we don't listen to music all the time, but we do watch the TV with the surround sound every day. He sometimes runs to all the windows and cries to get out and runs around the house, then back under the bed. He only comes out to eat at night, when we are sleeping, or during the day when we are gone. Any suggestions to help him get over the fear he now has and his not wanting to come out?? He also does not want to be held much and won't play anymore either. Should I move his food into his room instead of having it in the dining room?? Have we traumatized out cat?? HELP!!
