I feel like I just posted about my cat's age, talking about watching for behavior, and suddenly he's changing. He has taken to spending the night in our bedroom all of a sudden. He has never done it before -- tho' he has slept there often during the daytime (see pic). For 3 or 4 nights now, he has slept in our room, next to the bed (in a laundry basket).
At least he's not isolating. That would be a sign that he feels like he's near the end. But what's behind this new dedication? Is he seeking our protection?
