funny pictures of cats with captions

I am having a hard time getting back on schedule. One of my cats, Smalls, who is normally the anti-social former outdoor kitty who came with our old house, now wants attention 24/7. Okay, not attention...she wants to be rubbed. She gets right in my face, purrs like an engine and will wake me up a few times a night.

I'm so tired. I need uninterrupted sleep. And she's not letting me get any.

I haven't managed a decent word on the new book. I usually write during Irish dance lessons in the afternoon and early evening, but there are none this week due to the World Championships going on right now in Philadelphia. So that means only night time writing, but by the the time the kidlets are in bed I just want to sleep. I even forgot to watch Castle on Monday I was that tired.

Smalls is older. 14, maybe. Possibly 15. She came to us so we really don't know. I've heard that sometimes when cats aren't feeling well, they want to be with you more. That was the Spirit when she got Hyper-T. I sure hope that's not the case with Smalls. She's due for her checkup so I need to make an appointment, sooner rather than later. In the meantime, I'll keep trying to give her the love she wants and hope she'll let me get a decent night's sleep!

How is your week so far?

So sorry to hear you are being kept up. I think I might have finally gotten all the fleas off Nanuchy and Sonja that they picked up in my parents yard last saturday. Even with prevention and allergy meds for both of them they were scratching and chewing for the last 3 nights.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hope your kitty gets better so you can sleep. This is strange behavior for an older cat.

Oh no, I hope nothing is wrong with Smalls.

My week is a busy one here at work, otherwise, things are good.

Have a great Wednesday.

When kitties don't feel well they may seek you out, but they usually go off on their own and hide when they are REALLY sick. I hope her appointment is uneventful!
Good luck with your writing and getting some uninterrupted sleep.

I hope you have a great day!

Just what Brandy said!!!! I too have a 14 yr. old that has been wanting more attention. If I turn over or wake up for any reason she usually comes over but after a few minutes of patting she will settle down next to me.

Things are going pretty well.

Well, it's not nine yet, but I'm turning in. Of course smalls is sitting next to my pillow staring at me and purring. She just made a funny noise that tells me she wants me in bed with her. I sure hope she'll leave me alone once I fall asleep.
