Since the day I brought him home, Henry has slept on my bed. He seems quite happy to do so, and generally wants to cuddle up right against me, as close as possible. Last night, he came into the bedroom, then turned around and went back out to the den and curled up on the sofa. I came out to check on him, he followed me as far as the kitchen then turned around and went back to the sofa to sleep.
It was weird, and worrisome just because he's never done it before. If he doesn't want to sleep on the bed, that's fine, and I'll probably get a better nights sleep but last night I just tossed and turned and worried. At 6:30 I woke up and came out to check on him. He was just waking up, so I let him out to pee, then curled up on the sofa with him. He seemed fine with me there. At 8:00 I made his breakfast, and while I was puttering around waiting for it to rehydrate, he went and jumped up on my bed and snuggled in there until it was ready.
The only thing that I can think of that was different last night is he didn't get a treat before bed. I still give him a treat when he comes in from going potty in the yard, and I generally let him out last thing before bed, so maybe he associated that treat with going to bed? Since he didn't want to go out last night he didn't get a treat. This has only happened once or twice before, so maybe that confused him?
It's no big deal if it becomes normal, but it was just really weird not to be conscious of waking him up when I rolled over during the night. I'm worrying about nothing, right? Is this just him settling in (it's been 15 weeks since I brought him home) and making a different choice?
