In January of this year we got a kitten we named Weasley to join my other cat Dil. Everything has been fine, he's a normal kitten playful, rowdy and gets into everything. But lately his demeanor has changed. I know he's sometimes scared of my boyfriend because my boyfriend is a little clumsy and has stepped on his tail and tripped over him and the cat remembers these things. But normally after a few days he comes around and is back to being a little pest to my boyfriend. He actually favor's my boyfriend over me, except for when he's scared because he just got his tail stepped on and then he's up my butt. But moving on recently we have noticed he's not eating as much and he is scared and hiding all the time. He doesn't want me or my boyfriend to touch him.
Yesterday my boyfriend got him out of his hiding place and sat him down in front of his food bowl to try to get him to eat. He got him to eat half and he went to pick him up to cuddle and try to get him to come around. My boyfriend said Weasley had tears in his eyes, they were so welled up and he was breathing heavily. My boyfriend put him back down in front of his hiding space and he ran away to go hide until I got home.
When I went to feed them last night I had to sit with him and put the bowl right under his nose so he would eat. I noticed his favorite toy was sitting on the floor (a red ball with a bell in it). I had to get water and figured when I came back up I would try to play with him with the ball. When I came back up I noticed that the ball was gone and one of my boyfriend's dirty shirts was in it place. I thought that was weird, it was just me up there and the cats hadn't moved from their spots. Dil was eating his food by the door and Weasley was curled up against my bed. Plus the shirt was in the laundry basket which was no where near the ball. And for the rest of the night Weasley stayed with me, if I went into another room he followed. He even waited down by the door until I came back upstairs. He's actually been doing that more frequently, he likes to hang out by the door that leads to the main house.
Also, the other night my boyfriend said that Weasley clawed at him to be picked up and the whole time my boyfriend held him and pet him he said he had his head up looking all around.
I think there is something in the house messing with Weasley and I don't know why or why Dil isn't affected by it. If anyone has any advise that would be great!
