  Hi Alison

Yes, he does "sometimes" respond to that - but my that is a split second! I also flap my arms around like a demented parrot!!

He unfortunately is getting worse atm due to a massive influx of hormones, I really do not want him to have the snip, but I am getting ever closer to making the decision.  I am hoping that it is a spring thing, and will pass in a couple of weeks?  Is Jamie suffering as well?

Very sorry to read that Jamie is unwell, Alison. I hope that he is improving and gets better soon. Best wishes to both of you.
