Well, I have given a kitten to an elderly couple (They only spoke spanish, this is relevent later), and after a couple of years, asked that I take the now portly (3 yr old) cat for a couple of weeks while they went on vacation. ANYWAY...

This cat was disgustingly spoiled. After I walked in after 12hrs of work it had made it a point to let me know how unhappy she was with me and meowed at me in a very irritating tone while only nipping at her food.

She proceeded to shred/nap in the under side of my mattress.

I told it to eat, and tried talking to it, and it suddenly occured to me; it has only heard spanish, and proceeded to talk to her in spanish.

Charming cat overall, it lost weight. We got along grandly. It was fascinated with the ducks outside my window.

When I took the new slimmer cat to the couple, she proceeded to tattle on me, at length in a series of meows that I swear she created that were the equal of kitty curses.

Oddly, the couple noticed she was thinner and looked at me as though I grew another head.

To this day (this was several years ago) that cat STILL looks at me suspiciously.

and yes, she gained her weight back within a couple of months,

Doug, you are not kidding about the laser pointers! My cat will chase that thing for hours and always has the strangest look on his face when he can't catch it.

Just a thought. Is your cat new to Florida living? When we moved down here from the northeast(USA) our cat was 12 years old and it took him a good half a year to acclimate to the new surroundings.He actually turned very aggressive for awhile.Wouldn't it be nice if our pets could speak. It's really like dealing with a baby in trying to figure out what's troubling them.
