No offense meant, but this statement is true if you continue in your present fashion. It may take a while, but, the pet owner can train their cat.
Candy is a part-time lap cat - mostly with the dear wife (DW) - and Kathy does the same thing, she hesitates when she needs Candy to move.
Now, I don't suggest anything rough or mean, but tell Kathy to gently lift the cover until Candy gets the hint, and Candy moves. If her recliner is in the up position all Kathy has to do is start the recliner to the down position and Candy will bolt right off the recliner.
If Candy does something wrong all I have to do is look her straight in the eyes and tell her in a calm but authoritative voice that I'm disappointed in her, she gets the message and either wants to go out to the porch or outside.
Joan, Sooty may feel that you had something to do with Lynx's disappearance, and is acting out his frustrations on you, when you entered his territory he reacted. Has he been checked lately at the Vet's for any health problems?
