I’m Not Falling For It Again, Cat.

thomas o’ malley is baiting me by being cute so i’ll rub his tummy…but it’s a trap! if i do, it will be like the first ten minutes of “saving private ryan” and then my hand is missing.

good try, tommy….good try.

Cats Not Allowed In My Bedroom

i’ve never allowed any of my cats in my bedroom. my sleep is imperative and i need to remain undisturbed as much as possible (i’m constantly sleep-deprived, so i try to limit things that wake me up as much as possible). moreso…no cat hair on my bed!

that said…my bedroom door is always closed. the rare times that i accidentally leave it open, i arrive to find a kitty standing at the threshold peering inside at all the wonders of the world (through their eyes). unexplored territory with their daddy’s smell throughout…but they don’t cross the threshold.

when i first got butter (he’s almost 18 now!), he ran into my room the first chance he got when he was a newbie. immediately ran under the bed, of course. and it’s impossible to hand-reach a cowering cat underneath a king size bed with barely room enough for an arm to blindly feel around, so i used the “scare the shit out of him with extremely loud sounds” technique. he bolted out and never went in again (after a few more tries and scoldings)

if i’m just running into my bedroom to grab something real quick, i sometimes won’t close the door to latch close…it’s just cracked open a tad. tommy will nudge his head against the door and stick his head in…but won’t come inside.

it’s very funny to see, actually. i don’t carry my phone around with me, so i can never get a pic. one day, perhaps.

every morning i get up…for 4 years now….tommy sits outside my bedroom door in the hall and waits for me to get up and come out. he head butts my legs to death, gets petted, and follows me downstairs to do our morning socializing, get fresh food/water, and still doesn’t understand that i need an hour of coffee/wake-up time before i can play with him. butter, however, has learned to give me an hour to wake up. after i’ve been up an hour, butter starts meowing at me for attention.

it’s the only part of my days that i love. it’s the only joy, happiness, and love i experience or want anymore.

there’s so much love between us, i simply can’t put it into words to reflect its perfection and how carthartic they make me feel.

My Cats Vs. My Voice

i’ve never lost my voice before. i’m 52. for 2 days now, it’s only gone away about the first 4 hours and then slowly comes back to something barely negligible . i can whisper just fine.

my cats go bonkers when i get up each day. they want to love on me, have me love on them, run around, meow a lot, etc. they do bad things that i usually holler at them about…but not lately. i can only whisper at them. it sounds like we’re at a funeral and i’m politely asking them to get off the coffin.

gently whispering “get off the fucking counter you asshole!” does NOT have the same effect as with my real voice.

Religious Nutjobs Say…

religious zealots always say that gay people cause hurricanes, floods, disasters of all kinds…but that doesn’t make sense to me. i can’t even get my cat to stay off the kitchen counters.

New Kitty?

It looks like I might be getting a new kitty!  I've been without a cat for about 4 years and a friend's family's cats are making the three boys and two adults sick and the mom is about to have a fourth boy in July.  The new baby getting sick is unacceptable and they felt it's better for their family to find new homes for their five cats.

They've tried every cleaning method and service out there, but all cat owners know that your cat is everywhere…constantly…and there's no stopping the traces of our little, furry friends.  They're only considering friends, no-kill shelters, and a service that provides cats to seniors.

I went over and met all five cats and one was my favorite…a 7-year old, social, neutered, male named "Butter" 🙂

I told them they could come over and visit Butter anytime they wanted.

It's looking more official now and looks like it's going to happen in a week or so.  I'll keep you updated here.
