Jelly jumped down and started making noise again. I tried to ignore him but he was relentless. I thought maybe he hadn't eaten all of his food that Paul fed him, so I got his bowl out of the dresser. There were ten kibbles in there. Huh. So he ate most of it. Nevertheless, I put the bowl down. Jelly ate the food. I climbed back into bed.
Two minutes later I heard a THUMP in the kitchen, which is the sound of a cat jumping up on the counter. I knew Chrissy was sound asleep and Jelly never jumps on the counter, so who was it? I went out to the kitchen. It was Jelly. He was in the sink, scrounging for food. He was taking a page out of Chrissy's playbook! Why was Jelly so hungry!? I knew I was never going to get to sleep until I fed him, so I gave in.
I scooped Jelly off the counter, but when I scooped him up, he knocked some dishes off the counter that were drying. It was a tall glass, a wine glass, and a shot glass. They crashed to the floor and the wine glass broke. Jelly flipped out, dug all his claws into me (I got some gnarly scratches on my back, under my boob, and on my arm) and then jumped down.
"OWWWWW!" I cried. Then I heard Christmas jump down off his tower and trot into the kitchen. When Christmas gets scared, you have to distract him with a high pitched voice and food.
"Kisssssssyyyyy it's okay!" I chirped and he and Jelly followed me into the bedroom for food. "Paul, it's all good," I called to him. "Okay," he said sleepily.
The cats ate while I cleaned up broken glass in the kitchen.
And that was the middle of the night drama.
Jelly, I love you. But you can be a little bitch.
Do your pets ever create drama in the middle of the night?
Yikes, that's some craziness! My kitties have been pretty calm. We've been using a Feliway diffuser, and it's worked great for my cat that always pooped on the floor. Knock on wood!ReplyDelete
We tried feliway! Chrissy said fuck that and continued to pee in the corner.Delete
Cecil is a good sleeper through the night except for when he wants food, but he doesn't make too much of a fuss he just meows and taps me on the face until I get up. One time he started meowing right after I went to bed even though I had fed him just a few minutes before. I tried ignoring him but he wouldn't stop so I eventually got up to see what was going on ... and there was a bug in his food bowl which is why he wasn't eating and meowing his head off!ReplyDelete
Omg Chrissy would have gobbled up that bug!Delete
Baylee often wakes me in the middle of the night and I still cant figure out if it's to go outside, to eat, or just to play.ReplyDelete
What does she do to wake you up? Does she sleep in bed with you?Delete
She usually just comes to my side of the bed and pants, or nudges me. She never barks!Delete
