Strange behaviour ( Cat )

June 9th, 2008, 01:24 AM
Hi all, I just joined, looks like there are alot of pet experts on here so hopefully I can get some help.

I have a 3 1/2 yr old orange tabby. I adopted him a little over a year ago from a shelter. He is mainly an indoor cat, but I let him out almost every night for 1-2 hours.

Over-all a great cat but he has some quirks. Anyway whenever I go to the door without fail he follows me and tries to get out, and when I get home he's normally by the door and unless i block him he will run out. Well today when i got home, I opened the door and he would not go out! I even opened the door wide open for him, and he would still just stand at the edge. My landlord did call a maintenance guy over to fix our A/C while I was out, but I cant think of anything that would cause this. Any ideas out there?

Also what is a good inexpensive cat food? He's currently on Nutriscience original, and a tin of wet now and then (although hes not a big fan of wet food). Is this fine?

Thanks in advance!

P.S. here are some pics of Oscar :)
