During the day, Charlie often follows me around as I do chores inside. He hangs clothes on the line with me, etc.
He also can "hear" external "noises" and I have to say "Smell" external "scents".
He knows when deer are in the area uphill. Or in the house yard next door.
He knows when a dog barks. And runs to the back door or onto his love seat or the library, or the windows in my bedroom - sometimes all in a row till he finds one out which he can see what's going on.
Oh, sad Info here: Charlie's Arch Enemy was killed. His owner thinks he was poisoned.
In between all these chores, Charlie may sleep on the bed, or on the loveseat. But he is often checking out noises and trying to get me to take him out when I am late doing to. He has a ment clock.
Now when he "naps" during the day he lies all over the bed. Preferably the foot - but when he stretches out he takes up 1/2 of the bed... or the entire width.
At night he lies net to me with his head on HIS pillow and with one paw touching me. Sometimes he has two paws or more against my back. Which means I wake up due to falling off the bed.
If I have to I walk around to his side (Dbl Queen) and turn him so his paws are pointing away from me. It doesn't take lon for him to be back where he was... unless it is HOT inside. I try to keep inside at 77 and if it will be lower overnight I turn the acs off and the fans down.
I was woken at 3am this morning and had to turn the ac and all the fans on. Humidity was very high,
I think this gives you a good idea of Charlie's habits. I never let him out alone. But often now it is WITHOUT a ball. Hurrah!
Oh, one more thing - Charlie NEVER CUDDLES, EVER!!! He will sleep with his back against me once in a while. Otherwise he always has a paw touching me. I guess he loves me. LOLOL
