LOL Scattybird, you have no idea how close that description is. I can’t forget to feed him because he’s in my face complaining that he’s hungry all the time. My response is usually “so, what do you want me to do about it?”, but then I take pity on him and go help him find something to eat. I might even cook it for him on a good day. As for walking him, he’s usually happy to wander around Walmart while I wait for my prescriptions to be filled, and he gets a trip to Canadian Tire every now and then. He doesn’t really like going outside much.
Seriously, I agree it is good to have separate interests, spend time apart. And Lord knows I need to do something to keep my mind occupied. But it isn’t good that hours go by with no sign of him and I don’t even think to check and see if he’s still alive.
But I guess that isn’t really so unusual, when I think about it. Most couples spend their days apart and don’t check on one another or think about each other constantly throughout the day. At least, I think they do. I really have no idea what a “normal” relationship is like.REPORT ABUSE
