I’m starting to see a pattern. Today is venus’s first day back to carrying packages and he immediately became bored and restless and affection dropped from “regards you as parent”. Adding in exercise alone to his schedule to see what his reaction will be, and see if his str goes up at all.
It seems that both times he’s been bored his energy bar was not full to start off with. Raced him twice and he lost both times. Watched him 4 times, fed him 3 carrots. Will see what happens tomorrow.
