For the last week or so, my alpha female has been acting really strangely. The minute I head for the bathroom, she is hot on my heels and the entire time I am in there, regardless of what I am doing, she is circling underneath my feet, crying constantly and begging to be petted. But even if I pet her the crying doesn't cease. They are short little chirps like she is telling me something not cries of distress. So the other day, I went in there armed with one of her toys, and I threw it into the shower stall, she wasn't interested, kept meowing. Then I took a coffee mug, filled it with cool water, placed it on the floor and she walked over to it, started scratching around it (common for her to do this) drank some and then settled at my feet! No more crying. Now mind you, she has a huge community drinking bowl in the kitchen, several outside not to mention she uses the horse trough when she is thirsty. Now the only thing she wants when I am in there is water, and even if I keep the mug down there and filled with water, she cries till I dump the water out and give her fresh! LOL Go figure this one, and if you do, I will give you an A+!
