You paid a lot for your new companion and this is a Black cat a day without wine probably wouldn’t kill me but why risk it shirt a relationship. You must feed this guy healthy vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts and seeds along with good quality pellets and treats. It is a lot of work but a rewarding one when you see the beautiful creature that is a trusting friend. Good luck to you. I used to read a book about manipulation and my narcissistic ex told me “I hope I am not the one.” Would a narcissist say something like this?
