Before I begin, I just want to say that our cat can be annoying. The dog is never a bother as far as I’m concerned, but it’s an entirely different matter with the cat.
You see, the cat enjoys toying with us. For example, she will go to one of the doors and she’ll meow until someone comes to open the door for her.
And the moment the door is open, she often runs the other way.
We both find this very annoying.
The dog would never do this.
The conversation that I had with my husband yesterday went like this:
HIM: You wouldn’t believe what your cat did today.
ME: If I can believe that you hung a bird feeder from a fishing rod in our backyard today, I can believe anything that the cat did, Andrew.
HIM: Well, I went upstairs after lunch like I always do, to take a nap. And do you know what happened?
ME: I can only guess.
HIM: Well, just as I was about to fall asleep, just at the moment I was almost sound asleep, I felt something land on the bed. And then, I heard something right in my ear. It was her and she was meowing loudly. RIGHT IN MY EAR.
ME: So, did you throw something at her?
HIM: No. She wanted out. And I was just about to fall asleep, and I had to go all the way downstairs and open the door for her to go out. And then, do you know what the little &*^$%er did?
ME: She ran away, didn’t she?
ME: Why don’t you just throw something at her next time? That’s what I do.
HIM: What? I’m not going to throw things at the cat.
ME: I throw pillows at her. They don’t hurt her. And then I yell t little. If you notice, she never asks me to go out, if I’m lying there falling asleep. If she does, she’ll get a pillow in the face.
HIM: What happens if you run out of pillows?
I never run out of pillows. All it takes is one. Or two, if I miss the first time.
Honestly, I love my kitty cat. But I am not letting a kitty cat get the best of me.
No cats were hurt in the making of this post.
And I really am not mean.
But I will throw pillows if necessary.
