Re: The Saga of Romeo

Just remembered that last night I also noticed something that made me sad: He hides food he likes when you give it to him in the hopes he'll get more.

His previous owner only fed him twice a day and left him with nothing to snack on in between. So he's taken to stashing his "treats" hoping he'll get another one. I'd call it food anxiety if I had to name it.

He's unsure of new food but he'll usually taste it and will reply with "YUM" if he likes it. Mangoes were a HUGE hit.

It's amazing to me that he didn't completely pluck himself naked! No toys, food anxiety, poor diet...
