Long story short, Maurice is a fairly laid-back male cat, relatively young at 1.5 years-old, and he's strictly indoors-only. Recently, he has started taking to "attacking" Mrs. SMT's feet. It seemed relatively harmless at first, but it's progressed to the point that she's starting to no longer feel comfortable in her own home. Some examples that Maurice has begun to employ: -He will wait for Mrs. SMT outside the bathroom door and launch into her feet the moment she opens the door -He will wait for her in the opposite room, and will "attack" her as she comes around the wall/entry -He displays a "hunting for prey" behavior towards her - - crunching down low, waiting to pounce on her - - when in the same room We've purchased a new water sprayer that Mrs. SMT has been using to squirt him whenever he starts acting up. But so far, this has not deterred him in any way. It's my opinion that the cat has started to sense her fear, and knows that he can probably get away with such behavior. At any rate, Mrs. SMT is starting to lose patience, especially considering that she is starting to feel uncomfortable in her own home. Maurice doesn't bother me or the children for the most part. Monkeys, do any of you have any suggestions??
