Thank you all for your input, but I cant part with my cat, and I dont really think my guy is evil either.
I have had Murphy for exactly one year. I got him at 4 months, and at that time was having a very casual relationship with “B”. They got along ok.
I stopped seeing “B” in the spring or last year, not long after I got Murphy. “J” came over a couple of times last summer, and Murphy was ok with him, and he has two cats! But I am only friends with “J”.
I got laid off in December, so now I am home full time with Murphy. I have female friends that come over, and one has two cats. My dad has a dog, Angkins has two dogs… Murphy loves them all.
Daniel doesnt wear cologne, or aftershave. He smells faintly like laundry soap and shaving cream ~ very clean!
He hasnt made any sudden moves around Murphy, just kinds sita there and waits for him to come around - but Murphy wont even come into the room!
I have to conclude that Murph senses that this guy is somehow ‘different’ than other visitors. I have told him I will make him into slippers if he cant play nicely - but he just blinked at me.
