I tried some reverse psychology with Rhea when I was feeding Anna today. I actually carried her into the room to the far side shelf by the window and plunked her down while I filled Anna’s plate on the far side of the room behind the sofa. Her being up high kept her from creeping around looking for Anna.
Anna didn’t notice or didn’t react to Rhea being in, even when she complained as I took her out when I was done.
Maybe being dragged in will take the charm off of sneaking in.
Anna on the same shelf Rhea was on earlier.
At the end of playtime I tried to lure Davout forward with the string but he wasn’t biting. Rhea was not even there…
Even Rhea was shunning the room until the very end. She did creep in a few feet more but did not come closer and make Anna agitated. Maybe the reverse psychology is working!
