Jack - a thought

so Jack wants to spray.  Having tested his urine, it isn't because he is uncomfortable, so why?  Is it stress? is it learned from when he was uncomfortable? what?

I talked to my husband and asked him if he had ever seen Jack do what I refer to as the "Pee Pee Dance".. when he quivers his tail and steps with his back feet - the dance of the cat about to spray.  He never has.

So I watched Jack.  Tried to see when he might be doing such things.  He does them when i am in the bathroom... either in the front bathroom (the one they get fed in and has the laundry in it) when I'm using the toilet or in the master bedroom when I'm getting ready in the morning.

I observed his behavior prior to doing the PPD, and he was trying to get my attention.  I observed his behavior being interrupted from the PPD... and he was trying to suck up to me even more.

I can only assume that he is doing it to impress me for some reason.  I am going to have to be more aware of what he is doing when he's around, and praise the living daylights out of him when he is wanting my attention so he doesn't feel the need to try to impress me.

Just hope it doesn't go to his head..
