October is (among other things) National Cat Month. It's a time for all us cat lovers to celebrate what we love about our cats.
These are my guys, sleeping under the 200 watt light bulb in Mr. L.'s office. They love it there. They don't, however, love each other. It's only because they're asleep that there's no hissing or growling. I think (secretly) they all wish they were only cats.
Yes, having cats isn't all fun. Take what happened to me last week as an example. There I was, sound asleep at 12:09 am. But at 12:10, I was jolted awake by the sound of a cat retching in my ear. I quickly turned on light just as Mr. L's cat, Chester, projectile vomited ALLLLLL over the bed and on other our other cat Betsy, who'd also been sound asleep.
Finally, at about 25 after, I get to go back to bed. Chester is already back in bed, cuddled next to his sleeping dad, and looking happy and satisfied, while I must resist the urge to scream at him for fear of waking up the neighbors.
I had to read for almost an hour before Betsy forgot the tail-washing incident and came back to bed.
I love cats. I love cats. I love cats.
Surely, I'm not the only one with a story like this to share. I hope you'll leave YOUR story in the comments and we can all commiserate.
