I think he's basically accepted that the dog is not leaving. Sometimes she leaves with us to go to work....and then she comes back! He lets me love on him again, well until she shows up then it hissy claws. She sleeps in our room and he gets all fierce with her from behind the line of boots under the bed, so he doesn't sleep in our room anymore. When I get up at night he comes to meet me and I give him cuddles and he purr purrs his butt off. My truck is a little louder than it should be (yes there's still a little redneck left in me) and every so often he'll run to the window to watch and do his trill-meow when I pull up. There's a bench under the window so it's perfect for him to sit and prop up in a cute kitty pose.
