This crazy winter weather is driving us all crazy. It is especially hard on cats too, here in Northern NH.
“You just went out. It’s too cold. You didn’t like it!” I groggily said at 1:50am
“Here try a bite of this new can of cat food. Maybe a few treats?”
“Here smell this new toy. Isn’t this what you want?”
“What? What? What?”
“I need to get back to sleep, I want to get back to sleep.”
“Here let’s try a little catnip (even though I know its not the freshest kind for you)”
“OK, why can’t I go back to sleep? Let me think about a…. beach, summer….school…oh, no don’t forget…..”
-5 and half hours later, the cat still lies comatose in front of the wood stove, while I bundle up and drearily start my day!
