Heat rises; so my thinking is that he's seeking the coolest place in his environment by going as close to the floor as possible.It’s brutally hot here today and he’s been on the ground floor. I’ve gone in a couple of times but really don’t want to stress him so he goes up top. Just too hot. I just went in with food at 4 pm and he was under the couch! That’s a new place. After I left - he went and looked at the food - took one bite and went back under the couch. I want him to continue to explore and not get in the way until he’s comfortable. I stayed about 2 minutes but that’s it. I went in 4 times today for 2-3 minutes. He was visible twice. View attachment 428813
Absolutely agree about not stressing or scaring him while it is so hot.
You may wish to put some ice in his water. I used to do this when it was very hot. I also rinsed cloths in cold water and rubbed down my cats. You can't do that yet, but you can put ice in his water.
