On top of that, his food-hoarding behaviors have changed a little bit. It used to be that he'd eat his fill, then stash away the "leftovers" for later, but recently his hoarding seems to take higher priority than his eating. He'll bury/hide his food without eating any of it, and then be absolutely ravenous at his next meal. The best I can figure is that he's working on storing food away for the winter. Either that, or he has this lurking fear that one day I'll just stop feeding him.
I got off work at 10:00 in the morning today, and when I came home to let him out of his crate, Gizmo had made a special big mess, all for me. He somehow managed to unhook the tray from the bottom of his night-crate, flip down the latch on the slot at the front, and slid the entire tray out from under the crate, so that it was in front of the crate instead of on the bare floor. How he did this, I haven't the faintest idea, but he managed it. I have a hard time pulling that off, and I've got fingers.
Anyway, with the tray gone, Gizmo proceeded to ignore the fact that his litter box was still sitting right there and peed all over the floor. Oh well, at least he's cute. He is cute, right?
