sarabz Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 Over the past year or so, we haven't been away much, or, if we have, we've been able to take Bella. In the past she's pretty happily gone to a kennel near our apartment which she seems to like, to the point of wanting to go in the door anytime we walk down the block. This month has probably been tough on her, though. I was home quite a bit between Christmas and New Year's Eve, at which point we left for 5 nights and she was in the kennel. We came home for a couple of days, then DH left for a week-long business trip and my mom came and stayed. Then DH came home, mom left, we were both home for a week and then away for another 4 nights. From this last trip we got home late Tuesday, so picked her up Wednesday morning. Ever since we got home from this last trip, she has been very shadow-y and clingy. She normally is pretty affectionate and wants to be in the same room, but this is exaggerated, to the point where we can't move without tripping over her. The thing that really is making me post here, however, is that last night before DH took her out for the last time, she squatted and peed on the bedroom rug right in front of me. She learned houstraining pretty quickly, and only peed in the apartment a couple of times right after she came home, mostly due to us not understanding her signals, so this is very, very unusual. No signs of a UTI which I do watch carefully for, no chewing or other destructive behavior, just this peeing on the rug. Hopefully it's only the once. I know I tend to anthropomorphize animals' behaviors a little (although I do know better) so I know that it's unlikely that she's "getting back" at us for going into the kennel. But, is it because her routine has been so drastically disrupted this month that she's unsettled? Any suggestions are helpful. Thanks!
