Who Told My Cat She Could Sing?

Mama's Losin' It

Today's writing prompt:  Your Pet's Least Likable Character Trait.


Who's a good kitty?  Who's a pretty kitty?  Who's a sweetie-sweetie little pretty kitty?


After a long night, filled with the music stylings of our cat Maddy singing her opera of meows?  Not my kitty!  That's for sure!


Ann Again and again - Who Told My Cat She Could Sing?

I don't know why this has happened but our dear old cat Maddy has changed her personality and has become loud and difficult at night.  She gets plenty of attention - plenty from our 12 year old Lily - but she still has something to complain about and it's usually around 3 or 4 in the morning.

Does she have food?  Yes, later in her life she is taken with wet cat food so we make sure to feed her before we go to bed so her serving will last until morning.  Does she have water?  Yes, as a matter of fact she has a large container of water that she just loves to bellow above before drinking - this "singing" usually starts around 3 a.m.  Toys, cozy blankets, she's got it all.

We wondered if she couldn't see the water, she used to love to drink from a running faucet but after the faucet was left on one too many times that idea had to go away, so we have a water dish that moves when it refills.  But she STILL sings to her water, and she sounds kind of angry actually.  Is she mad at her water?  Her meowing sounds kind of like "I don't like you.  But I'm thirsty so... well... here it goes!"

Oh, the night meowing is bad. Have you had a similar experience?  Did you find a solution?  Advice is welcome!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

An addiction, no matter what it is to, can consume the person who is addicted and it can also be fat…
