Animal lovers are not gonna like me after this one…but hang with me here and see if you can at least see my point of view…
It’s 5:50am. The reason I am awake is because of a cat. My cat. My cat that I have had for 13 years now who has finally gone insane. Well actually, she’s not insane…she’s just gotten too old. So old that she can’t get up on the bed anymore. So now, since she’s gotten too old to hop up there on her own, she whines about it. Loudly. At 5:30 in the morning.
Now, for the record, I’ve loved my cats. Used to be 4 of them. Steph had 2 and I had 2. 3 have passed on to the big litter box in the sky. The most recent was the sister of the one who is whining now…and ever since I had K.C. put to sleep, Bootsie (the cat who is whining) has been acting all weird. I know she’s old, but now I’m wondering if she’s missing her sister? I dunno…but here’s what I do know…she’s waking me up at all hours of the night and she’s pissing me off!
My wife is sympathetic. When Bootsie whines, Steph gets out of bed and tries to find her to put her on the bed. Which is fine except for one thing…Bootsie doesn’t liked to be held…or picked up…ever. So she whines, then she hides. So then Steph gets back in bed because she can’t find Bootsie and then she whines some more! So now maybe you can see where this is driving me a little nuts…right?
So my answer to this? I throw pillows. I sleep with 3 pillows, one of which is between my legs (long story, not going there). So I launch a couple of them to shut her up. I figure a pillow flying through the air should freak her out a little bit, right? I’m not actually trying to hit Bootsie because I don’t know where she is really. I’m just trying to get her to SHUT THE F%$& UP ALREADY! It’s 5:30 in the freakin’ morning you stupid cat! So SHUT IT!
Am I wrong?
