Their 'safe' place has been a room in the basement where I keep the litter pans 
and the food.  I've had to move the food upstairs to be sure everyone's eating. 
 I've left the litter pans and some toys and cat trees down there and tried not 
to chase anyone down there for vet visits or pilling.  But Shaft has been 
hiding down there from pilling to the point that yesterday I had to go down 
there to pill him. :(

punishment to him.   I give mine safe places.  When they are in their safe 
place I don't mess with them.  I also make a point of picking them up for some 
love every time we cross paths.  I don't want them to think the only time I 
pick them up is for meds.  I'm short on space so I have storage tubs under the 
beds eliminating that as a hiding space.

If you can crate him and cover his crate with a sheet sprayed with    Feliway 
it might help....maybe put Rescue Rememdy in his water.  On Jul 19, 2008, at
