There have been all kinds of kitty fun around here. The other night I woke up, sleeping on my left side, and there was a kitten across my head.
Gracie was spread out like a wet sack of potatoes sleeping away.
Now I’ve seen cats do lots of crazy things. But I’ve gone 64 years without one sleeping on my head.
Ivy’s Current Moodiness:
Ivy has been in a pissy mood lately. She came into the bedroom one evening, which she almost never does, and lay on my bed. Gracie couldn’t come near the bed and that’s her usual practice when I’m watching TV. Because Ivy wouldn’t let her.
Ivy growled and spit and made weird noises. After about an hour of this, Ivy jumped on the floor and threw up. I thought maybe that was what was making her so moody. But she kept acting odd until she finally retired to the living room.
Ivy typically stays in the living room at night when I’m watching TV or reading. She’s not one of those cuddly cats unless you’re combing her. (Thanks to the reader who sent me that comb; Ivy loves it.)
Neither one of these cats like to be picked up.
Last night I had a dream that Ivy became feral.
At night when I’m attempting to sleep, Gracie usually wants to play. I’ll wake up and she’ll be laying on my chest when I’m on my back staring into my face. That’s an eye-opener.
Ivy wants Gracie’s food now no matter what kind of canned food I give to Ivy to appease her. So I have to watch them or Gracie will not get her fair share.
I can just put my finger close to Ivy’s face and she will back up. She’s a smart cat.
I still can’t figure out how or if I’m going to decorate for Christmas. Ivy never bothered a tree or any holiday decor. But I think Gracie will not be able to contain herself. She’s a very curious cat.
