Nefer has celebrated by sleeping all day undisturbed by him.
Anyway, the vet agreed that a few things odd about Sora's Issues might point to a medical issue (which might be an underlying issue exacerbated by the stress of the move): it doesn't seem like marking behavior as we've discovered pee puddles on plastic bags** in the kitchen and living room and Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings cleaned poo up which was deposited overnight right near the food bowls. Yesterday we added a second litterbox in the laundry room, and when I brought him in there and put him in it, he squatted but it took him a really long time to begin to pee, and although we had no surprises left for us overnight, yesterday evening we discovered a puddle right next to the new litterbox. Although the rest of his behavior has been perfectly normal.
So ... Sora remains a Cat of Mystery, at least about the state of his mental and physical health. The vet gave him a bit of a painkiller (at the end of a Traumatic Vet Visit that involved a Most Undignified poking and prodding of a Most Intimate Nature), so that if peeing causes him pain, it should relieve that for the moment.
We shall see.
* I suspect I am more traumatized them him. They said I could drop by this afternoon and visit, but I don't want to get his hopes for going home up and then dash them.
** Yay for that choice!
