Something's Wrong, You're Not Naive, You Must Be Strong.

Don't let the holy light confuse you - this cat is up to no good.

So, today was off to a rough start. The beast decided to plague me all night long by pouncing on me every two seconds while I tried to sleep. I kept thinking he'd get tired and finally go to sleep, but as far as I could tell, that never happened. At some point, I finally got fed up enough to throw him out of my room and close the door. He didn't meow much either. I did hear him trying to open the door with his paw for a bit before he gave up. Needless to say, I didn't get a lot of sleep last night.

I'm not sure if it was the lack of sleep or the margaritas, but my brain and my belly weren't all that happy today. I suffered through it all and slid my way home on the ice and got to take a little nap before I started my evening.

Surprisingly, tonight turned out okay. I talked to Stinky for a bit, before she headed off to a basketball game, ran to the store and made potato leek soup. Yum.

We'll see how it goes tonight with the orange demon we call Archie. I'm hoping for a pounce free night of sleep. Wish me luck!

Cats - if they aren't pouncing on your head they are walking on the counters. Which is worse?

I think cats can be trained to stick to your basic sleep pattern, but kittens seem to follow their own rules. My cat is older and doesn't usually bug me. When she was younger, she would pounce, claws intact, on my feet.

Are you teaching him how to go potting in the toilet?

I guess baby animals are a lot like baby people. They do what they want, when they want!

Potato leek soup sounds wonderful.

Sorry about the very little sleep thing. We know that waaaay too well. At least with a kidlet, you can talk them out of yacking, but cats just NEVER shut up. And ours drinks out of the toilet, which makes A. nearly puke. I think it's kinda cute.
