This is why I should not take care of cats or babies.

Because I cannot understand them. And it is very frustrating.

Last night the cats were wandering around, meowing their faces off. At first I was all "Hey little guys, what do you want?"

They had food.

They had water.

They would not shut up.

As my frustration grew, my pleasantness flew out the damn window. Next thing I knew I was having an argument with a cat.

"WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?? YOU JUST KEEP TALKING AND TALKING BUT YOU ARE SAYING NOTHING AT ALL. DON'T YOU KNOW WHEN TO QUIT?? WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?? JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!"















And this is what the yelling cats look like. They have such angry faces. I am frightened. Hold me!

If these were dogs this would not be happening. Because I would give them some food and they would shut up. Or I would rub their tummies and they would shut up. Or I would throw a toy and they would shut up.

But not cats. If I touch them, my eyes could swell shut and I will get all stuffy. And nobody wants to see that. And food does not work. Neither does water.

I'm pretty sure they are trying to trick me. I don't know what their plan is, but I know I don't like it. I don't like it one bit.

Maybe they didn't want anything but your attention..and you fell right into their trap.

Or maybe there was another cat outside...or the moon was full...who knows, it could be *anything* with those guys. I would have ignored them. Soon I will be back to do so.

Or maybe they wanted to steal my soul.

Anything can happen these days, you know. Things aren't like they used to be.
