Default Frodo is acting weird.

He doesn't want to come out of my room AT ALL.

Not to go outside, not to eat, not when everyone else is downstairs.
I made him go out twice today and he peed. I laid a track and he ran it then darted up on the porch and barked until I took him back in. Even a turkey neck wasn't good enough to keep him outside, he carried it to the door and waited.

Inside my room he is acting normal, playing bitey hand and tugging on his bunny toy like a fool.

Earlier this evening I got him downstairs by having him hand touch all the way down the stairs, then we did some tricks for treats, he sat on my lap for a couple minutes then darted back upstairs. There was even PIZZA downstairs when he went upstairs. :/
The whole time he was downstairs he was WAY more jumpy about every noise. I don't get it, nothing has happened to my knowledge recently that would cause him to be jumpy.

I don't know if it's vibes I need, but I want him to be back to normal. Usually he will door dart OUT of my room to be downstairs with me, and now I can only get him out of my room by constantly rewarding with food or on a leash.

Any chance your neighbors got an ultra sonic anti barking box?

Poor Fro. I hope it's nothing major. There were some big storms brewing yesterday, maybe that was it?

This. If there were some big storms.... he was in your room when the tornado hit, right?

Thanks guys.

Yes, we did have stormy weather last night, but we have stormy weather ALL THE D@MN TIME and he doesn't usually bat an eye at it.

Another thing I realized today was that I stopped giving him raw with turkey in it in an attempt to get rid of some of my stash and he has been on pheasant for a few days. The kibble he is on is turkey based, but he's been getting only raw the past few days. I switched the raw out tonight to thaw and he had turkey kibble for dinner. If that isn't the whole issue, hopefully it will at least help :/

He still didn't want to come out of his room today, but did on his own when I grabbed his leash and headed for the door. A dog passed when we were out and he had an explosive reaction, which hasn't happened in a LONG time. When we went back in he headed up the stairs and Nado ran up the stairs so Frodo gave chase. I yelled Frodo's name and clapped my hands loud because I didn't want him eating the cat kibble, and when I reached for his leash he shied away like I was going to hit him. NOT normal. :/

Poor guy. Don't you wish we could just sit down and talk with them for a few minutes?
